Awww, you did help! It’s a mystery I’ve been trying to solve forever.

Do you have a heavy duty stapler? Or just a desk one?
Not sure if there’s a heavy duty one around here… maybe? But it’s hard to even get nails through these walls with a hammer. I feel like staples would just bounce off.
Soooo I just tried crocheting with size 10 thread last night for the first time ever. It sucked. Bad. What am I doing wrong? My chains looked abominable and let’s not even mention the single crochets. Any tips for a first-timer to thread?
Practice. Loads of practice. The first time I worked with thread was a disaster. It just takes work to adjust your hands to working with it - a different kind of tension and all that. Just keep working at it!
Aaaaand the bracelets I made for the concerts tonight and tomorrow. Took a while, but I’m pretty happy with how they came out.
Tutorial is here.
My little sister is a difficult creature to capture on camera. But here she is in the mobius scarf I made her for her birthday. =]
empresstheodoras asked: What is a lace lifeline, pray tell?
A “lace lifeline” is just a length of a contrasting color of yarn run through a row of stitches you know you’ve knit correctly. It’s super useful in lace knitting, because the nature of lace knitting makes ripping out mistakes and putting the stitches back on the needle correctly extremely difficult.
With a lifeline, if you make a mistake in your lace knitting you just rip out the rows back down to the lifeline, which lets you easily put everything back on your needles.
Lifelines are truly a lifesaver when it comes to lace knitting. Hope this is helpful!
Knowledge is power!
Late night anxiety? NO PROBLEM JUST STAY UP WITH ME AT 3AM AND MAKE JEWELRY.
On the plus size, I’m gonna have some super cute bracelets to wear to the Phoenix/Arctic Monkeys two day show on Thursday and Friday.
I’ve finally finished it! More than a year after it was commissioned, then four months after knitting actually began, I have managed to knit the most ludicrous scarf ever to exist.
It is nearly twice my armspan in length, a full hand span in width (and my hands are really big), and it depicts the Twelve Labours Of Hercules, in as close a style to ancient pottery as I could manage.
