We were recently saying that it’s time to slaughter some of our hens. They must have overheard because today we were given an egg from a hen who hasn’t laid in a long time as well as another “King Kong” egg. #eavesdroppinghens #layeggsorGTFO
Well, I have a couple different tutorials for dyeing yarn with KA.
Here’s the basic dyeing 101 tutorial.
And here’s how I used frozen KA ice cubes to dye yarn by melting in the sun.
Also if you just look around on my other blog there, you’ll find lots of crafty stuff. :)
maybe i wear lipstick so that
you will see my pretty pink mouth
wrapping around a coffee cup lid
and be distracted enough not to notice
that i am intelligent and powerful;
maybe i draw my brows into high arches
so you will look at my unimpressed skepticism
and overlook my spiteful glare
as a trick of my silly, girlish routine.
maybe i wear my heels so high and thin
so that i grasp your attention with the sway of my hips
as i listen to the click-clack-click against the floor
and know that if you should try to overpower me
i walk on sharpened knives.
maybe when i laugh at your worthless jokes
i am really baring my fangs
waiting patiently for the day
that i sink them into your neck.
i am not made of porcelain pleasantries;
you will find that these things are my armor
to keep you at a distance
so you do not step on me and shatter
my fragile control.
i am not a husk — i am not wilting.
i am turning my head
so that the fire blazing through my eyes
does not catch on the accelerant of your sweaty palms
and burn your bones to dust.
i am not your pretty girl;
i am a fury, a faerie, a phoenix —
a forest of werewolves and wendigos
that will carve out your chest
so that the next time i paint my pretty pink lips
i will taste the copper tang of your dying breaths.
Where is this from? Does anyone recognize this statue? I love it so much!
EDITED: Never mind I found it! Georgia Gerber is the artist. She’s amazing, go check out her stuff! This piece is from a collection of Bronze statues called “Chapter 5, A Promise Kept” located at the Mukilteo Public Library, Washington (1999)
(Also this picture is taken by Jim McCluskey. You can find his flickr here along with photos of the other sculptures from this collection.)
I want to knit them outfits.
