2017 Geek-A-Long: Thor

He’s hot. He’s sexy. He doesn’t understand your human ways. He’s…

THOR, GOD OF THUNDER!

Lightning bolts and abs aside, I never got into the Thor comics. The closest I ever got was when he made an appearance in Squirrel Girl, which honestly was delightful. Loki turned himself into Cat Thor and then stayed that way for a while just to upset Thor. Straight up charming, guys.

Linvilla Pullover Pint-Sized

Is it possible to have an Eggo Waffle hangover? Because I’m pretty sure I have one. Over the weekend, we had a nine-hour-long Stranger Things 2 marathon party, and we ate an embarrassing amount of waffles. I’m talking about bought-it-in-bulk-from-CostCo amount of embarrassing. I naively thought I’d have some left over for breakfast for the next month, but no. We went at them like it was our jobs. On the upside, my sugar high ensured that I made serious progress on my Christmas knitting.

But today isn’t about…

2017 Geek-A-Long: Beast Boy

Even though we put the final Geek-A-Long Guild boxes of the year into the mail, I still have trouble believing this is the 44th square, which means there are only four left after today! FOUR. Where did the year even go? How did we get only two days away from November? I swear to Chuck ::winks at Supernatural fans:: that I was crocheting sea creatures pool side yesterday and making Fourth of July plans. I know I’ve been chipping away at my Christmas knitting, knocking items of…

Currently Crushing On

Hello and good morning! How are you as we enter the final stretch of October? I was┬ádoing awesome. For the first time in my adult life, I managed to purchase Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters a week in advance instead of scrambling to get it the day of, but now it turns out there was a reason why I wait until the last minute: my dear husband, who is currently laying in bed moaning, “Why did you let me do this to me?”

Normally, my husband is the responsible one in our relationship since I’m the hurricane of crazy.

2017 Geek-A-Long: Blue Beetle

The Blue Beetle I know and love, Jaime Reyes, was actually the third person to take on the Scarab. He was a relatively normal kid from Texas until he discovered the Blue Beetle Scarab on his way home from school. He took it home and it did exactly what your innermost nightmares thought it would. It came alive, grafted itself onto his spine, and induced some weird dreams. Super fun, right?

To make matters even creepier, the Scarab is part of a living hive-mind, genetically engineered by these jerky aliens called…

Giveaway Winner and Advent Yarn Calendars

Hi. Hello. How are you? I’m 100 percent hungover, so I’m going to need everyone to read quietly today. Last night, my husband and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary, and I might’ve gotten a little carried away drinking these blackberry Moscato cocktail things. They’d bring me this single serve martini shaker filled with deliciousness and then I’d pour it into a glass of Moscato… It seemed like a great idea at the time. You see, my husband and I take turns being the designated driver, he gets Valentines Day and I get our anniversary, but we have this rule…

Hunting Sasquatch

Our knit and search mystery knit along has drawn to a close, which means it’s time for me to share our photos of the completed design!

I’m not sure where other designers take photos of their samples. They all either seem to have one big blank wall in their house or live on a farm or something. I don’t know. There’s no such thing as a blank white wall in either of our houses or even in the dye studio. Add in the fact that we live in the…

SOCK Club: Psych

With Megan-Anne and I gearing up to mail out the next installment of the Society of Caffeinated Knitters (SOCK Club) at the end of October — I’m in love with the Pie stitch marker, but you didn’t hear that from me — we thought it was time to reveal the theme we had chosen for August. PSYCH!

No, seriously. I’m not pulling your leg. That was the theme.

If you’re…

2017 Geek-A-Long: Starfire


Starfire was in line to rule the planet of Tamaran as its queen until her sister, Blackfire, did a bunch of stuff that resulted in her enslavement and eventual need to flee to the nearest planet. It was bummer for her, but pretty great for Earth. She met Robin and joined him in forming the Teen Titans.

I don’t know much about Starfire outside of the Teen Titans cartoon….

National Coffee Day Giveaway


Rejoice, fellow caffeine enthusiasts! Today is National Coffee Day — or, as I like to call it, FREE COFFEE DAY. My husband manages this mythical place on the East Coast of the USA called Wawa. They’re more than just a convenience store/fuel station, they’re the place where the good affordable coffee lives. And I can order from the deli and get my sandwich without every having to converse with a single person due to the touch screens, which is a huge selling point when Megan-Anne and I have…
