I want to make the Hue Shift Afghan in jewel tones but the kit isn’t available in the UK.

I could just get the pattern and the yarn seperately but I have no sense of what colour goes with what and it’s incredibly frustrating.

Why not buy the pattern and take a picture with you of a completed afghan to a craft store or LYS?  That way you can get the pattern and possibly the yarn cheaper.  

Anyone mind giving their opinion/preference between MacBook Pro and MacBook Air?


Please and thank you.

I have a pro and love it.  The air isn’t great for heavy use from what I’ve seen.  Some of my friends have them and they overheat easily too.

One note on either though- I’d go with the most basic internals as you can. Upgrading the RAM and hard drive are easy and a lot cheaper than getting them from apple.  If I knew that when I got my pro I’d have saved almost $500, considering I did it again this week.



i’ve probably reblogged this multiple times but by god i’ll do it again.

Knitting question:

How much of a party foul is it to go to a stitch and bitch and show up with a project made of yarn bought from online instead of that LYS?

Because I super want to go to this one tomorrow, but don’t need another project to start, just want to work on the one I have.

Like, I’d be super willing to purchase something small there, I just don’t need yarn for five more pairs of socks right now. I want that yarn. But I don’t need it and shouldn’t buy it.

My LYS requires you to buy something if you want to join.  There’s also a fee on top of that, don’t know if that’s normal or not.  She’s really weird about it all.  I don’t think it’s a party foul though, I completely agree and understand not needing to buy more yarn.

Teddy tanks.  Let’s talk about the betas they have in those “fish tanks”.  How about the lack of proper heat, oxygen, filtration, light, gravel, etc?  Like every other fucking retarded thing on tv, some moron’s going to get it for their kid and actually put a fish in it.  And kill the fish.  Then get another.  Kill that one.  Repeating the cycle.  But, some asshole is going to profit and not care about the animals killed.  Because they “provided valid alternatives” to fish inside the “Teddy Tanks”.  And the packaging totally isn’t pushing already impressionable kids to put fish in the stupid things.  And the plush animal parts aren’t enticing to children to pull them down and play with them, traumatizing and/or killing the fish.

Yeah, the things are fucking retarded.

Editing wedding photos and listening to The Lion King soundtrack at midnight.  That’s what well-adjusted adults in their 20s do, right?


I am terrified of how depressed I am.

I know the feeling.

If you support gay marriage reblog this. If you’re on the homophobic side, keep scrolling.







As a bisexual, it sickens me that some people WILL keep scrolling.

As the straight daughter of a gay man, it sickens me that some people will keep scrolling. 

As a straight girl with a basic understanding of equality and love, it also sickens me that people will keep scrolling.

As a straight Christian woman, I pray that people will not scroll past this. Love, not judge.

I’m re-reblogging for that last one.

what now?


I missed some sort of memo.


Has anyone ever gone into a LYS and felt like they were intruding on some sort of exclusive club? 

I guess I’ll always have Joann’s, my true home.

Yes!  Though the owner has warmed up to me a lot lately.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’m stubborn and don’t leave her alone, but whatever works.  Her co-owner on the other hand is an absolute doll.  

Maybe try going a few more times?  I know it sucks and is super awkward but if they warm up to you, it’s great.


If you’re reading this, you’ve been in coma for almost 20 years now. We’re trying a new technique. We don’t know where this message will end up in your dream, but we hope it works. Please wake up, we miss you.

So not cool.  I feel like this constantly.  Like, I know it’s difficult to explain, but I’m always walking around feeling like nothing is real.  Something’s not right in my world and it scares me that this could be true sometimes.

I promise #itsgrace is coming later today we’re scheming some sweet choreography for our #nofiltershow. I’m sweating.

Omg.  Hannah as Fiona.  Yes please.

I’ve got a laundry list of things to do and prep for and graduation and holy shit I have so much to do.

  • Wedding prep-meeting with the bride Saturday, wedding is less than a month away, have to get some replacement reflectors and random extras
  • Graduation-getting my tickets/cap and gown
  • Resume-been submitting it everywhere that I have an interest in, including photographers and internships
  • Selling old camera equipment that I don’t need along with other misc things

That’s just the first few things.  All needing to be done in less than 3 weeks.  And nothing in there about my end of semester work…ugh



I’m selling all of this as a single lot. It’s mostly wool with a couple skeins of acrylic and some Egyptian cotton, mohair and alpaca. It’s all different weights and would be perfect for color work, hexipuffs, granny squares, or tapestry weaving. Make me an offer, trading or to buy.

Oh I wish I could afford all this…


The person I’m in love with is a girl. A girl I can never be with. The person I’ll probably be with is a boy who I feel next to nothing for. Life isn’t fair, but I can pretend, for everyone’s sake, that I’m not gay.

Don’t think like that!  It might seem difficult if not impossible to come out, but you don’t have to settle for something or someone that doesn’t make you happy!  Perhaps you can’t do anything about it right now, and perhaps this person doesn’t feel the same, but you’ll be able to be yourself in the future.  It might not be tomorrow, next month or next year, but when you’re old enough you will be able to make your own decisions.

You’re only 15, still young.  But, if your parents are open, perhaps you should tell them.  It’s not worth lying to yourself and those close to you.  I’ve realized that and I hope you do too.
