since abercrombie an fitch destroys its unsold clothes and wont donate bc poor people wearing their clothes gives them a bad image i say everyone should donate as much abercrombie and fitch brand clothing that you have to homeless shelters so you can simultaneously piss off a shitty company and help those in need

2nd best idea. The BEST idea is not to buy their shitty overpriced clothes to begin with

Oh my god I have meatballs on my head

Yarn I dyed yesterday!

Top row:  boiled onion skins with a splash of vinegar to make the wool accept the dye
Bottom row:  boiled red onion skins with a splash of lemon juice. I didn’t have enough skins to make the dye as saturated as I wanted it so I added 1/4 teaspoon of Procion Red dye to the (1 gallon) pot. 

Each yarn was 1/2- skein of Knitpicks Bare Suoerwash Merino worsted

makinology:

stick with your knitting &/or crocheting … it’s good for your wellness …

"Knitting or crocheting can do wonders to promote cognitive function as well as hand health, write Carrie and Alton Barron, M.D.s, in their 2012 book “The Creativity Cure: Building Happiness With Your Own Two Hands.”



"Using your hands meaningfully triggers healthy engagement and activity in about 60 percent of your brain, said Alton Barron. The rhythmic, mathematical nature of knitting and crocheting keep the mind absorbed in a healthy way, providing an escape from stressful thoughts but allowing for internal reflection, said Carrie Barron.
While television can engage people from the outside, the mind requires stimulation from within in order to “free associate” or think imaginatively, she said. The psychiatrist suspects the return to knitting is a response to the rise in technology, much like the arts and craft movement followed the industrial revolution.
“There’s something so gratifying about taking strings and pieces and making them whole,” she said. “There’s something primitive and innate about that. The fragments of the mind also come together in that process. It’s a parallel process between the mind and the hands.”

Wolf knitted this cute little infinity cowl!

Can you recommend a pattern for learning how to toe up socks? Thanks
Asked by Anonymous

stitcherywitchery:

Unfortunately, all the learn-to-knit-socks patterns I’ve used have been for top-down socks. Does anyone have any recs for Anon?

I always knit toe-up socks.  I wrote a good explanation of learning to knit socks in this post.  Hope that helps.

I had a mishap

at work on Saturday and have a concussion.  My head has been hurting.  From experience (I had a miscarriage 10 years ago and bled so much that I passed out, fell and hit my head and got a concussion then, but that’s a different story) I know that my head will probably hurt for a good couple weeks or longer.

Yesterday we had no kids at home so we ventured out to church and grabbed a burger for lunch on the way home.

We took the rest of the day pretty easy.  Had a walk in the early evening and watched a British murder mystery. I dyed some yarn with onion skins, Wolf finished knitting an infinity cowl. We went to bed by midnight, which is actually a little early for us.

This morning I made Wolf’s breakfast and sent him out the door for work.  The kids are still not home.  I think I’m going to take some ibuprofen and go back to bed for a couple hours.

I have a big rooster chalkboard that I write the evening’s supper menu on. 

Can you tell it’s no-kids day?

That’s not what *I* said

Heehee

Aww!  It’s so little!

Handspun Yarn "Tequila Sunrise" bright pink and yellow colorful Llama, Corriedale wool, Tussah silk and glitz DK yarn 100 yards

Di listed a new handspun yarn!  It’s a very soft and bright llama fur mix.  Go see!

Five

  1. It was a pretty good day today.  I got by with a minimum of pain and with a good attitude.  However considering it is a bi-weekly pay week, people tipped TERRIBLY today.
  2. I’ll be into overtime by lunchtime tomorrow, and won’t get off work until 8 PM.  I have a meeting at work at 8 AM tomorrow. I may not even show up sober.
  3. I have had NO time this week to knit. :o(  Each evening when I have finally had an opportunity, I’ve been too tired to hold needles.
  4. I’m behind on thanking some people for some things.  I will, though.
  5. Five was probably too many for tonight, anyway
