Dorm Room Design Dreams

If I had unlimited funds to decorate my dorm room, I would: A) Decorate the walls with awesome Blik decals.  Right now I’m going crazy for Craww’s designs.  I think they’re the type of images that would inspire me every day- sort of like an amazing tattoo but with less comittment. (I’ve been watching a … Continue reading

On The Needles: Glow Glow Gadget

My latest finished project is interesting and different, but mostly it’s just awesome.  Behold: Glow-In-The-Dark fingerless mitts (or as David insists on calling them, biker gloves).

In Defense Of: Outlandish Rap Lyrics

I have a confession to make. I am a huge rap junkie.  I don’t look it, with my eyeglass chains and my knitting antics, but as a child I wasn’t given access to television or internet, so my only contact with the outside world was through my radio. I loved spitting rhymes while alone in … Continue reading
