I finished this project bag today! I realized that I had no place to put the socks that I've been working on since April, so I made a place. This totally counts as beachy right? Like, laying on the beach watching the sun set and all the stars come out? :D

HALP ME HALP ME!

tl;dr version: I think my child looks good in orange. Am I wearing Mom goggles?

I want to make my son a hat. He dyed this really bright red based orange, and I have a LOT of grey yarn. I can't decide if I should have the orange stripe on his skin or they grey stripe. (it's a charcoal grey if that matters.) I've held the yarns together, I've put the yarn on his face in natural light, I've googled images of hats that are grey and orange striped to see which I like best....and every time, I feel like it could go either way.

Help me Plus!

+Brian Vo Thanks for your input! The options sounded way more funny in my head than it appears they came across. My bad!

Two things you need to know for this post to be funny. Recently, I've started reading more into D&D and my husband watched Mean Girls for the first time.

Husband is trying to make every object and every evil/bad guy in D&D an agent of Cthulhu.

So I say:  "Stop trying to make Cthulhu happen! It's not going to happen!"

I just got an email from my LYS titled 'holiday knitting.' And of course I'm like already??? 

Then it goes on to say, 'Did you know there's only 25 more weeks until the upcoming holiday season?'

Panic ensues.

Dice bags for everyone, right? That will totally work won't it? Everyone needs dice bags...

So remember yesterday when I was all, to orange brim or not to orange brim? Here is the hat, with happy child...and the one with his face in it is the most true to color.

Holy crap, my eyes!

PS- Did I mention orange is his favorite color and he dyed that neonish thing himself? Some times it's red, other times it's orange. I don't know how he managed that color with food color and koolaid.

He complained that it was too hot to wear, today. His dad told him, "That's because it's summer and you're a dork wearing a wool hat." He'll like it when we move somewhere colder.

-More angsting about having to work tonight

Loves and hugs. CPS worker stopped at our house for my stepson's issue with the flighty drug girl he had a kid with. Make the doll. It only works if you infuse it with something personal, (hair or nail clipping, clothing scrap, or intense directed personal hatred /love).

+Jaime George have you gotten to knit with that lace weight I dyed for you yet?? I'm curious how it knits.

I'm considering making something like this for Goosie: https://tinyowlknits.wordpress.com/faerie-wings/ but much bigger. She goes through the ones made of nylon that you get at costume shops like nobody's business. My hope is that if I knit her a pair, they won't tear as easily but I don't want it to be torture on my hands while making them.

I went with my two kids (9 and 4) on a Saturday morning and found out that they were understaffed by one person. You would never know if someone hadn't told me! We planned to just browse around, pick up a few notions, and maybe a new pattern. We were there for two hours, and loved every minute!! I would come again for the fantastic fabrics that I found while there. So many of them are adorable, cute, funky, and some others are down right hilarious! My son loved the mustache fabric and the matching buttons. I love that everything is clearly labeled and stored by fabric type, and the quality is SO much better than the Joann's and Walmarts. It's a bit far for me to travel there whenever I need something, being about 40 miles away, but I will make my lists and go when I've got enough stuff to make the gas spent worth it. If it weren't for the very friendly and helpful staff, I don't think I would do this. I felt like a pest being new to sewing, but they were just so amazing. They helped me choose a fabric, color, and matching the color of the notions and thread. I got a tour of the shop, and despite my many, many, many, many apologies for my kids playing in the rolls of fun fur, I was told again and again that it was fine and not to worry about it. I even got some recommendations for some gluten free pretzels for my son's allergies, and the name of soy-free chocolate chips for my allergies. And a recommendation for a great bakery nearby for lunch. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the employees are, and how helpful, even when they are short staffed. I'm over the moon about the fact that you can order online, and having been to the shop, I know that they really do care about what they're doing, and know what they're doing. If you want to place an online order, go ahead and check that box to have them pick up some coordinating thread for you. They do a great job.

I grew up not too far from Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, and I went in knowing this was a smaller zoo. I was a little underwhelmed with the aquarium until we got to the shark exhibit. That was pretty cool. I wish the habitats were bigger for the animals, as they all seem quite small, but the only way to get those is for the zoo to get more funding, and with the Seattle zoo not too far away, I'm not sure what the chances of that happening are. The only thing we didn't get to see were the polar bears because the glass for their habitat was being replaced. I did love, however, that they don't charge additional fees to any of the exhibits like they do in the larger zoos. The staff is really nice, though all of the concessions except for the cafe were shut down (it was November). The entire grounds were kept clean, and it doesn't smell like poop, even by the elephants. :) We plan to go again closer to Christmas when they have the entire zoo lit up at night.

I went just before the evening rush hour, and there was only one other person in there other than the 3 employees. Everyone was very nice. Even though this was my first time there, the woman who did my nails (full manicure on my real nails) made her best attempt at conversation. We talked about weather and family, nothing controversial or uncomfortable. My nails came out really nice, and she never hurt me once when trimming the rough skin off my fingers or scraping the dye (I work with dye, especially lots of reds and black, without gloves) from under my nails. I'll totally be going here again.
