Completed knitting project! || Haruni shawl by Emily Ross

Yarn: Morris Empire 2ply. I used two strands of yarn together (dark purple and green).

I love this pattern because of the leaves, which is why these pics are so focused on them. It turned out a little smaller than expected, but I’m still ecstatic to have finished it! 

PS. Please ignore my bed spread. I have an obsession with purple.

I cut my hair the other night when I was really upset but honestly I’m so happy with it look you can see where it ends and it finally feels like light and free and healthy yay!

i feel lucky because my hair is curly enough that i can give myself a haircut and the awkwardness of it is sort of hidden by how curly my hair is

Same! I just did this two nights ago and despite just going at it with some random scissors my hair still looks totally acceptable and potentially even cute. #curlyhairperks

It’s been so long since I actually posted something I’ve made on here, but look! Fresh off the needles, a take on Zuzu’s Petals by Carina Spencer, but with an arrow lace border instead of her lace pattern. Made with Malabrigo Rios in color “Archangel” (90% certain, I have lost the tag). Woo can’t wait to see how it blocks out!

Today’s Gender of the Day is: If you’re cis don’t make these jokes

Just to elaborate on this submission, this is basically a summary of my actual position, but there’s more to it than that.
Cis people making these kinds of gender jokes is at best, awkward and strange, and it makes you question what the intent behind the joke is. At worst, it’s very offensive and dehumanizing. Between those two extremes is the bottom line that it’s just not being a very cool ally to trans folk. It’s similar to straight people making gay jokes. It’s just not cool.
And as I’ve said time and time again, if you feel strongly about gender humor, so strongly that not having gender humor would be a subtraction of enjoyment from your life, you should consider that you might not be as cis as you think you are.

fuckboy symptoms:

  • timothy over here askin’ for nudes when all u did was say hello
  • connor who won’t calm down with his axe spray tryna infect ya lungs
  • colin adding #420 to his bio when he smoked weed one time
  • gregory mad cause u didn’t blow him after the first date

how to spot a fuckboy:

  • white nike tube socks with his adidas sandals
  • he wants to play 20 questions (!!!!!!!!! do not play !!!!!!!!!!! especially if there’s a “;)” involved)
  • relies on his mom but doesn’t respect women
  • looks like he just read one of jaden smith’s tweets in all of his selfies
  • can’t find the clitoris

fuckboys come in all shapes and sizes and results may vary but when he a fuckboy…he a fuckboy…and u will know

And some take longer to figure out then others, don’t forget that or ignore the red flags.

been doing some research

And here is an another  #knit #shawl I finished yesterday in a yummy vine color 😊. It is so big that it was impossible to fit it in a photo, so that’s the best I could do. Hope Jenny will like it 😉| А вот и “винная” #шаль 😊. Большая и полукруглая 😄. Еле-еле хватило иголочек, чтобы ее заблокировать! И сфотографировать нормально оказалось сложно, в кадр ну никак не помещается. Вот, всё что могу! 😄#knit #knits #knitting #kgthreads #вяжу #вязание #вязаниеспицами

LAPD confuses Black actress kissing white husband for a prostitute 

African-American actress Danièle Watts claims she was “handcuffed and detained” by police officers from the Studio City Police Department in Los Angeles on Thursday after allegedly being mistaken for a prostitute.
According to accounts by Watts and her husband Brian James Lucas, two police officers mistook the couple for a prostitute and client when they were seen showing affection in public. When the officers asked Watts to produce a photo ID when questioned, she refused. Watts was subsequently handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser while the officers attempted to figure out who she was. The two officers released Watts shortly afterwards.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME 

In the most recent update of “changing laws won’t change a culture,” laws against interracial marriage were officially struck down by the Supreme Court in 1967 Loving vs Virginia, but are still being enforced indirectly today.

Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.

This honestly makes me so emotional.

wow

It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.
