I'm the type of person who often carries a pocket knife. And occasionally uses it to cut yarn.

I made a DPN holder. Modeled with interchangeable tips and chopsticks, because I don't actually own any DPNs, lol

My favorite tribute to Alan Rickman I've seen it. It talks about the man, not the characters he played.
Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

If there's one thing I love about the Hangouts update, it's the option to not turn text into the most hideous set of emoticons on the planet.

(Was that always there? I feel like I've searched for that option before and never found it)

For all you toe-up sock people... here's a pretty nice comparison of a bunch of different heel types

Since we have some sock knitters in the group I thought I'd share (in case you guys haven't heard of this)

Tour de sock is a speed sock knitting competition that basically involves knitting a pair of socks a week for 6 weeks. You can join a team and actually compete, or just join/register for the fun of it and be a cheerleader/spectator. It's $7.50 and you get 6 sock patterns out of it, plus discount codes from some of the sponsors.

I've finished the body of Mayapple (uses nearly a whole skein of fingering weight!) and I'm waiting for more yarn for the border. This project is going on temporary hiatus while I move.

Since I needed a more travel-friendly project, I started New York Beauty (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/new-york-beauty) last night. I think this is going to be a perfect knit for traveling - simple enough to memorize, interesting enough to not be too boring. No stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needles, etc. are required. Just a circular needle and the two cakes of yarn.
