The contest for a pair of crochet fingerless gloves is being hosted over at A Girl and Her Scout, and the winner will get a customized pair of crochet fingerless gloves. This post is to give more info as to what that custom really entails.
The winner will choose any number of colors, limited to what I have in my yarn stash, and I'll use those to make a lovely pair of fingerless gloves for you! My yarn stash is full of multicolored yarns, as well as single colors that can be used individually or in combination with others.
Some examples of these gloves that I've done in the past are:
A Very Potter Sequel premiered earlier this evening, and it rocks. So hard. I don't want to elaborate too much, because I can't say a lot without telling you what's going on, you've just got to watch it first! You also don't really have to have seen the first one first, but there's a lot of stuff that isn't as funny if you don't get it from the first one, and well, you should have already seen the first one anyway! Be prepared to spend a good amount of time watching if you do it in one setting, and it isn't a family affair, the sequel's got a lot more hardcore language in it than the original and it isn't censored. This makes me like it more, but I know that isn't everyone's cup of tea. To be slightly spoilerish, I've posted my two favorite quotes below the video. There's a bunch of them, but these two are my faves from my first view through.
From Act 1, Scene 2:
Ron: Where have you been all my life?
Harry: In a cupboard under some stairs.
Ron: That's so cool!
From Act 2, Scene 10:
Harry: No way? You listen to me now. For eleven years, I was a muggle douchebag locked under some stairs. This year, I found out I'm a wizard. I'm famous. I can fly, and turn invisible, and I just traveled the fuck back in time. Fuck You, Draco, how's that for a happy thought? So there is absolutely no way that there is no way, you hear me?
We're working on putting together Team Sampler Boxes for the Owls team. This is my contribution:
Aren't they just too cute for words? (Okay, don't lie about it...) They're the latest in my knitting amigurumi sans pattern adventures, and I like them. :) And look how cute they are in their little packaging:
Look for more info about them and the Team Sampler Boxes coming in July! Exciting!
I'm Jamie. I like music and poetry and believe that the specifics help define me. I get nerdy over social patterns and certain television shows. And everything Harry Potter. I like scarves, photos, and photos of scarves!
I post things on this blog that I find interesting: news articles, songs, video clips and the like. I will also talk about craft things, Etsy related things, and have been known to get political sometimes.
