Dear people who encounter my corner of the Plusverse,

If a stranger walked into your house uninvited, shouted obscenities, threw things about, and left (or worse, got into an argument with other strangers who also showed up), you would probably not take kindly to it.

It's likewise unsettling to have someone you've never interacted with post a comment on G+ with lots of UPPERCASE and profanities, without so much as an acknowledgment that there is a person who posted that thing causing so much ire.

If you come onto one of my posts, guns blazing, expect to be blocked. Because you're being rude. And my portion of the Plusverse is not a democracy. I block people who are unable or unwilling to engage in civil discourse. This means I will not tolerate people attacking one another, making prejudiced comments, etc.

TL;DR -- don't be a dick.

I missed this post initially, but totally agree. The sorts of people who like to search out random articles to be an asshole in are the people who like to scream "freedom of speech" without actually understanding what it means and where it actually applies.

I started watching "Young and Hungry," a silly sitcom on Netflix, because I recognized Jonathan Sadowski, who guest starred on ”Chuck" awhile back, as Laszlo, a computer genius who had been locked up by the government.

I think the rest of the cast is vapid, but Jonathan is adorable.

I hope mom went in for her first round of chemo with that 'do.  The nurses need the smile too.

Great words from +Chuck Wendig on abusing people online, and the #AskELJames tag's utter toxicity. 

I find a certain amount of sad irony in watching thousands of people gleefully pile on and insult a woman because she "glorifies abuse".

I'm watching the #AskELJames hashtag like a stock ticker reporting on the market of online human shame, and it's fascinating in the way that watching hyenas eat a sick lion is fascinating. I don't ...

I've set up a collaborative crochet art project in order to channel my own grief, provide an outlet for the affected crochet community and honor the life, creativity and work of Marinke (Wink) from A creative being​ who tragically took her own life. Please share.

Nearly finished with the Feather Stole, crocheted in Auracania Yarn (merino wool blend). All of these photos show the stole before blocking - blocking will open up the lace pattern quite a bit.

I will be teaching a class on making this stole at Serendipity Fibers. The pattern is done as hand-drawn crochet symbols.

If you know the chain, single crochet, and double crochet stitches, you can make this lovely piece!

"In his world of 1950’s and 60’s construction he had never seen a woman as anything other than a secretary and I suspect he thought it would present too big a battle for me. All these years on, I’m grateful I rebelled and paid his view little heed.

"He softened slightly after my first degree and once I began gaining hands-on experience as a site engineer. Despite being the only woman in my team, I enjoyed those early experiences immensely. The building teams took great care to show me how to tamp concrete, cut cast iron pipes, lay bricks and, most importantly, view a set of architect's plans with a builder’s eye. My father changed his mind completely once I had qualified, opened a practice and asked him to come in and give the team a hand. Funny that, eh?"

The overall numbers may prove me wrong, but I had the feeling that architecture was more of a women's studies regarding the general audience I met…

I checked out the Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook from the library today. Quite a dense tome, I've given it a brief flip-through, and was a bit overwhelmed at the amount of information in it. Not in the mood for intense reading at the moment, but I look forward to spelunking into it at some point.

I've been tossing around the idea of writing a few fiber book reviews on my blog. Gives me some writing practice, on a topic I know a little about. And I already have opinions about some of these books. Plus, now that the library system includes all the public libraries in the state, the available books to borrow & peruse are wide and varied.

I make a lot of public posts. I reserve the right to block people who engage in abusive language, or who tick me off. This is not a matter of censorship, I am not a government entity preventing you from speaking in a public space. This is a matter of active curation. If you don't like it, you can keep your comments to other spaces in the Plusverse and across the internet. It's a big place, I promise.
