Lady Gaga’s “Living Dress,” from the designer of Catwoman.

It’s a little hard to see, but it’s the best view of the three videos I saw in showing the movement of the dress. Via Fashioning Technology.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I hope that all of you, in the true spirit of the day, protested a war or somehow encouraged disarmament.

(I always forget that it’s a protest holiday and get my mom something and make her breakfast anyway, but it’s also important to remember the original intent of Mother’s Day.)

A Special Presentation

This isn’t really knitting-related, but it is something I “crafted” myself. The Beau said he wanted to see a video that set cute puppies to gangsta rap, so I made one. Man, I missed making movies. This was really fun!

Warning: the video is rated C for cute, but the audio is closer to R. So NSFW if you want your speakers cranked (which you should be doing). Although “your ass will make you shit your meal” is a truthful description of the digestive process, your boss might not agree.

How to Make Beautiful Beads From Recycled Newspaper



Now that’s what you want to see before you go to sleep!

Before we get to today’s post, I have an announcement:

I’m looking for Yarnival! editors again!

Drop me a line if you feel like hosting next month. Here’s some information if you don’t know what Yarnival! is, and here’s where you can submit your articles. If you’d like an example of what Yarnival! can look like, here’s February’s edition! You can also check out the Yarnival! archives.

Knitting Decal

A bit intense and orange, and I’m not sure about the fabric that’s being generated, but hey, it’s knitting and it’s awesome. What do you think is in that magazine? $20 says it’s boobies.

Leap Year Resolutions

Friday, February 29th, 2008

The Story of StuffI never make New Year’s resolutions because I think if there’s something you should change, you should change it on August 7th when you realize it and not some arbitrary day in the middle of Winter. This is also why I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day (I mostly celebrate the day thereafter, which I like to call 50%-off Chocolate Day).

This year, however, is an odd one. It’s one day longer than usual, so I figure I can take the time to write up a little blog post for myself about Resolutions because I have an extra day to play with.

So, what is my Leap Year’s Resolution? Why, it is to lose weight. But, fair reader, not the weight that you would expect. It is the weight of STUFF.
