Yarn hair?

I definitely want to try this. See, this is why I love LiveJournal, even moreso than Google. You can find anything on LiveJournal. In this case, I found a tutorial on how to make your own felted yarn hair extensions. Here is a picture of her results:


Oh man. As soon as I get a job where I won't get fired for having cool hair, I will totally try this. However, the job I have now...yeah, they're not too partial to red dreds. (I work at a froufrou cafe in Downtown Chicago. They are very into teh "only pretty and nice girls work here" image.)

A four day scarf.


Yeah, that whole thing about posting an FO that wasn't a scarf?

Lies. All lies.

Draping here before you is my four-strand braided cable scarf (see this post on how to make a four-strand braided cable). I finished it in four days. I have been a very nervous and jittery girl. It is knit in some worsted virgin wool I had lying around.

The AntiCraft

We were deep in the clutches of a weeklong absinthe binge when the Divine Hand of Brilliance touched us in an inappropriate place. When this vision came, we knew we must create a haven for all the sinister crafters of the world. No more would we be cowed into silence by cheerful scrapbook stickers. Never again would we be forced to gleefully execute a sweater of intarsia puppies. The green fairy had blessed us with an exotic vision we were powerless to deny. We madly scrambled for pen and paper with which to compose our opus. Finding none, we took up our knitting needles and carved text into the walls. With an old tube of Vamp we illustrated our glorious creation. Upon release from the hospital, we returned to our lives with renewed direction and embarked upon this project with the fervor of a snake-kissing Pentecostal who has an anti-venom kit.

This website is too fabulous.

I especially love Bad Juju, Eternal Embrace, and Snowball's Chance in Hell (which is entirely too clever).

I promise, promise, promise that soon I will have an FO post that isn't a scarf. Promise.
