I made this fantastic slouchy hat from a pattern by Moogly. I had to make it less “slouchy” though, I didn’t have much yarn left… 

I love it.

Fox Paws is finally published! I kept images of this wrap off the internet for months waiting for fall. It was so difficult because the pattern turned out so nicely. The yarn used in the greenish sample is Knit Picks Palette, a perfect yarn for colorful projects.

The pattern uses only stripes to create the motif, as a result, the fabric is stretchy, not stiff like fairisle knitting.

It really reminds me of a bunch of tiny paws, and that is a happy thought.

I’ve been obsessed lately with this knitting project. Now that I’m half way through, I had to take some proper photos of it.

It’s really the most beautiful thing I’ve knit in a long while!

The name of the pattern is Courant, and it was designed by Barbara Benson. Here’s a link to the pattern on Ravelry.

NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED. 

WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED

but it’s 65% more bullet per bullet

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
