A song about punching sharks and being otherwise totally radical.
Oh man, guy! I’m leaving for Houston today. I’m not too sure if I’ll be getting any WI-FI or decent phone signal on the way over as well as in the hotel. If I don’t than that’ll mean I’ll be gone for five day. Sorry about that. :c
Else, I’ll be post updates and selfies of my trip! I really hope all goes well and I can place for state this year! c:
I love the idea of being able to go to Nationals for BPA!
Knitting Inspiration: hoods. Like, fairy tale hoods. I read somewhere that “capes are in” this year and, while I don’t give a flying fuck about that sort of thing, it does mean that suddenly all these fetching hooded capelet/shawl things are sprouting like mushrooms. (Get it? Mushrooms? Fairy rings….fairy tales? You’re right, that was a bit of a stretch.)
I’m particularly drawn to ones that are heavily textured or almost insubstantial. There was a thing with hooded scarves a few years back that I never really committed to; having seen these more voluminous alternatives, I suddenly understand why I waited. Unlike hoodies, which are ubiquitously casual to the point where I refuse to wear them, and hooded scarves, which make me think of kids who can’t be trusted to not lose individual cold weather items and are thus given a combination mittens/hood/scarf thing, these are poised somewhere between little kid make-believe and massive sophistication. I also suspect that they won’t cause hat hair, although I might have to line them to prevent unfortunate bobby pin accidents.
