Don't Forget To Knit Awesome!

Knitting our collective way out of a paper bag since 2011

Random HP-ish Monday!

Today, I will HP the crap out of you.  But first, I would like to say that I finally had reason to use an Xenergy today.  And that the textbooks I no longer need are officially worth crap, or less than 17 dollars.  depending on the book.

Also, this is my friend Morgen.  She talks, knits, and presents neanderthal genes.  Like me.  Only she’s a lady. Not like me. (SCIENCE!!)

I love the current giant yarn trend going on.  Here’s one.  Another.

I have no idea what JK is doing here, but I sincerely hope it’s an ARG 

 There’s a better video, I’ve seen it, but I now can’t find it.  Anyway, look in the bottom left hand corner of the scene.

Elder wand pattern  You have to sign up for Lion Brands’ stuff, but they’re pretty decent actually.

This depresses me.  Let’s all have a little bit of silence for that.  I realize that the future of retail online, if only so the workers don’t have to deal with these people, but I will miss it.

Now, the comment request.  What scene/plot line in the movies would you get rid of for which scene/plot line left out of the movies?  It’s been too long since I read the books, so I can’t remember.  However, I would like to see who is doing “the hiding” in the closet on that map scene up there.

And finally, here’s some photos of that scarf that I knit because I was pissed at the pajama pants I’m designing.  (Totally updated my ravelry queue whilst I was finding the link up there.)

I’ll move your TV for a burger.

True story.  Just got back from doing that.  Helped my uncle move his big screen.  But, the burger had to be Carl’s Jr., or no deal.  That burger was the highlight of my day.  I didn’t do much else, so that’s not AS sad.  Anyway, down to blogness.

Last night, I had to restart a project I’m making a pattern for again.  It’s the second time it’s turned into a mobius strip, and, understandably, I got a little pissed.  So, I knit a whole scarf in anger.   That’s just how I roll, guys.  I knit so I don’t kill people.  I create to prevent my destruction.  Because, man, I’d destroy whole cities.  The only thing holding me back is YARN.  Think about it.

So, my appreciate your friends on FB campaign is going great.  I’m actually wording some not so awesome things to appreciate someone into words a little less hurtful.  Which isn’t what I intended with this, but is a nice by product.   Now, somewhat in the same vein, how do I choose which friends that I knit which prototype for?  I don’t need all of them (unless I move somewhere not horrible.)   Suggestions?

Did you guys know that a copyright only costs 35 bucks in the US?  SO, when my patterns come out, they’ll always be copyrighted.  Oh!  In regards to that video I tweeted about earlier, it will be a surprise… After I get, you know, a video camera and some editing software for a single web video that has nothing to do with my brand.  So, kind of soon.  Look forward to it!

To infinity and, like, 3 blocks further and the first house on the left,
