sockdreams.com is such a dangerous website omg you can drop so much money within the blink of an eye

I NEED ALL OF THEM

let me tell you about sockdreams okay. everything they have is cute and their “longer” socks which are for taller or curvier people are amazing. i am almost 6 feet tall and not a skinny lady and i bought some thigh highs thinking they’d end up being calf socks on me and just kind of resigning myself to this fate but when they arrived (in like two days, holy shit they mail out fast) not only did they pull all the way up without trouble, they managed to stay up and look cute. as. fuck. OP’s right yo, that website’s a threat to your wallet.

sockdreams is such a legitimate company and I love them a lot

For realsies, SockDreams is amazing.  I really admire them as a company for making a strong commitment to being body positive.  They put a lot of effort into making sure their sizing information is accurate, have a wide range of options for plus and tall sizes, and are vigilant about hateful comments appearing on their sight.  Not to mention, the language they use on their website is very inclusive.  All my love for sockdreams.  

We might have to upgrade to a bigger server because of this post. Thank you all, we’re over here like:

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

"You either have to write or you shouldn’t be writing. That’s all."

Joss Whedon (via wordsnquotes)

Forgive me if I’ve told this story, but back in 2007, I met Joss Whedon in the “my airline ticket isn’t working!” help desk at LAX. 

I recognized him and my brain detonated a little, but he was with his family and I didn’t want to bother him. I settled for going up to him after his tickets had been fixed, and saying how much I liked his work, complimenting him particularly on the BUFFY comic (which was new at the time).

Happily, though, Joss and I wound up next to each other in the security line, and I told him a very little bit about myself and asked him if he had any advice. He did, and some of it feels too personal and treasured to share, but here is one of my favorite things he said:

"Don’t write stuff just for money. I’ve done it, my friends have done it, and it made us all miserable. Deliver pizzas before you write stuff just for money."

Anyway, yeah, what a wonderful encounter that was. I’ll never forget it, and never stop being grateful for it.

"I wrote a book. It sucked. I wrote nine more books. They sucked, too. Meanwhile, I read every single thing I could find on publishing and writing, went to conferences, joined professional organizations, hooked up with fellow writers in critique groups, and didn’t give up. Then I wrote one more book."
