Adorable Handmade Fingerless Gloves by Natalija Bran

Lithuanian artist Natalija Bran’s favorite hand-crafts include crochet, knitting and paper art, which are lovingly inspired by her three daughters. Bran’s most popular pieces are her handmade knitted fingerless gloves composed of wool and acrylic yarn to trap heat. They are adorned with vibrant floral and animal designs.

Her embroidery work is usually feminine insertions of nature, which include the presence of bees, flowers and other woodland creatures. Each glove is decorated with an intricate Victorian border, which mimics romantic lace patterns.

Although Bran’s designs are intensely saccharine and enchanting, they were built with function in mind. The charming pieces keep your hands warm and fuzzy, while allotting freedom to your fingers to use. You can find more super adorable designs in her Etsy shop.

okay so we saw that Viktor was pretty much in love with Yuri pre episode 1 (which is one of twenty thousand reasons to love this episode), but you know what else now makes sense?

Why Yurio “hates’ Yuri. He totally lost in the dance off. Yurio lost to someone who not only placed last at the Grand Prix final, but someone who was drunk as shit. 

About that dinner...

SPOILERS FOR EP 10 OF YURI ON ICE! I tagged it spoilers but just in case you don’t have x-kit or tumblr savior (change that if you can btw, it makes the general tumblr experience so much better) sp-sp-spoilers!


I’m sure there’s going to be a ton of meta of the reveal that Yuuri actually asked Victor to coach him (granted he was drunk off his ass but still), the Otabek/Yurio scene (Otabek came through like a goddamn wrecking ball) and the whole rings bit but I want to talk about the dinner with everyone.

(Minako & Mari you are truly all of us)

This happens the night BEFORE the Grand Prix starts and it’s telling that even though they all have very intense rivalries with each other (then there’s Yurio and his galactic sized one) they not only get together when you could argue they shouldn’t, they are actively joking and enjoying each others company. Even bloody Otabek who no one really knows is there chilling and relaxing. It’s beautiful. There’s gentle riffing with each other, picture taking, Pitchit being the best and then the bombshell revelation that Yuuri basically turns into Christophe when he drinks. That leads to Victor and Christophe casually showing the others the videos & pictures and is a great lead up to the ring reveal which THEN leads to the oh shit reminder that even though they all get along, each of them still really REALLY wants to win:

Shout out to Otabek and Yurio’s matching stank eye!

They could have ended the scene perfectly right there and had Yuuri/Victor dash out but oh no. We are then treated to PISS OFF JJ (a study in 3 parts):

Even after all that blustering and IT’S GOING TO BE ME, they all either dislike or can’t be arsed with JJ so they don’t even bother acknowledging his threat and walk off together. 

Ah Yuri on Ice. You are truly one of the very very few great things that came out of the dumpster fire that is 2016. I am distraught there are only 2 episodes left.

matt is literally a gift to us all, first off he’s the biggest isaiah and harry/luke and magnus stan, and he cares so much about portraying his character and his character’s relationship in an accurate way so that fans can relate to it because so many lgbt fans have touched him with their responses he wants to be able to do the same, and he researched internet slang so he’d be able to understand what we’re saying, and he doesn’t shy away from discussing malec (in fact he gets excited about it) even though he’s in a relationship with a girl and some actors would have found it uncomfortable like how did we get so lucky

Victuri Headcanon❄️

So now that we know Victor and Yuuri met a year ago and danced together *squeal* (yuuri also kind of grinded on victor😏). I just cant shake the thought of them having a one night stand that night and Yuuri completely forgetting about it because of his drunkness and Victor being completely in love with him ever since. I mean its just a HC but with the whole Eros thing I just cant stop thinking it!
