I made a tail out of yarn. Now my hand hurts.
Do you ever memorize a person’s voice? Like you can construct a sentence in your mind that that person’s never said, and yet you hear them say it.
Is that a thing people can do?????????
there are people that cant do that??????????
I do this with my late grandmother sometimes.
Quick random question. I'm getting on a plane in a few days I know there are so many restrictions on what I can and can't take on with me. Right now I'm working on a small granny square blanket, so I was wondering if you knew of something that I could take to cut the yarn that isn't on the prohibited list.
The TSA actually fairly lenient considering. These are the prohibited sharp objects listed on tsa.gov:
- Box Cutters
- Ice Axes/Ice Picks
- Knives - except for plastic or round bladed butter knives
- Meat Cleavers
- Razor-Type Blades - such as box cutters, utility knives, and safety razor blades (disposable razors and their cartridges are permitted)
- Scissors - metal with pointed tips and blades shorter than 4 inches are allowed, but blades longer than 4 inches are prohibited
- Swords - cutting or thrusting weapons, including fencing foils
Scissors with blades less than 4 inches are acceptable to carry on. If you are still concerned about that length, I suggest carrying sewing kit scissors.
Folding scissors tend to work well, they don’t open up on a whim, and the blades tend to be much smaller than 4 inches.
The TSA doesn’t really address crochet, but when it talks about “knitting needles and needlepoint”, it basically just says don’t carry a circular cutter or a cutter with a blade that can’t go through security.
We couldn’t bring scissors into Anime Boston this year and I was working on pokeballs made with crochet thread. My friend had just given me an assassin’s creed themed travel kit with a sewing repair kit and nail clippers and stuff so I ended up using the nail clippers to cut my thread. Might work on thicker yarns, too.

Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation
Okay. So i want to talk about this for the sake of talking about it, and if anyone has anything to say about it, I’m all ears. I think this is downright mean. This is a high school girl, who found a style movement she enjoys, and decided to roll with it. Especially since she’s not doing it to degrade Japanese girls or appropriating a piece of fashion that’s extremely close to the culture’s traditions or beliefs. This is different than when Gwen Stefani and Avril Lavigne used “Harajuku Girls” and their culture as props to sell their music. This is treating the culture as a commodity. This is a girl embracing another culture, which shouldn’t be discouraged. That being said, she should be educated beyond the weak understanding that western civilization inevitably has of Japanese street fashion.As his definition stated, "Harajuku" is a real neighborhood in Japan where teenagers (not just girls) strive to dress in a way which is original to them as individuals. He is correct. But this includes any number of styles, not just what this girl is wearing. They did not develop “one look” to copy. If she’s dressing just to dress like a cute Japanese girl she saw on the internet, that’s one thing; but how does he know she hasn’t done her research, become inspired by the movement to dress in a way which expresses your own unique identity, and this is what she came up with? Oh yeah, that’s right she couldn’t have done that because she’s just another stupid white girl.
On a related note, this whole, being outraged on behalf of the group whose culture is being appropriated instead of asking whoever’s supposed to be truly offended what they think, has to stop. This system of handling cultural appropriation - where the white guy calls it out and gets offended - doesn’t really serve the interest of whoever’s supposed to have been appropriated; instead, it just allows white people to prove that they are Good White People and go on with their privileged lives.
I haven’t seen the episode in the gif but I am pretty certain he is talking to his daughter.
In this series, Corey from boy meets world takes the roles of both his own father and Mr. Feeney in mentoring his daughter.
He would know that what she is wearing isn’t her and she is just doing it to attract more attention for the wrong reasons.
I am almost positive there is an episode of boy meets world where he watched Topanga go through the same thing and he almost lost her as a friend. If Corey thought that this was what Riley really wanted to be like, I’m sure he wouldn’t have a problem but Riley tends to go overboard when she is trying to act a certain way at school and ends up being a different person at the dinner table.
I can’t say for certain this is true but boy meets world was my childhood and I grew up with Corey Matthews.
