round up

u ever notice how throughout episodes i-ii and the first part of rots anakin moves so freely and he’s loose and casual and so is the way he talks and then you see that changing towards the last part of tcw and rots and by the end of rots he’s using the more formal speech with his ramrod posture and so much pain and trying so hard to be something he’s not

and how in episodes iv-v he’s still like that but then woooooo buddy we reach the end of rotj and aside from the speech (which i’m assuming is harder to unlearn than it is to learn) he’s reverted right back to that slouching, unsure state with trailing words and so much confusion and legit i dare u to just watch rotj and instead picture hayden under the suit bc let me tell you it’s literally effortless because that’s exactly the body language he used while playing him

and then tell me hayden’s not a good actor again

First, let me say I commend TrueBlueMeandYou for doing round ups like this all the time. This was a lot more work than I expected! (Not that I minded at all.) Someone asked me to do an amigurumi round up and while this is nowhere near inclusive, I tried to pick some good ones. There’s always Ravelry if you want to find more!

Here they are:

1. Owlets by Roman Sock

2. Owls Two Ways by Ocean of Stitches on Ravelry*

3. Puppy Love (many puppy patterns) by By Hook, By Hand

4. Happy Reindeer by Lion Brand

5. Amigurumi Rainbow Robot by Sweet n Cute Creations

6. Amanda and Annie Teddy Bears by JennyAndTeddy

7. Margarita by Petite Purls

8. Koala Bear on Craft Passion

9. Dragon by All About Ami

10. Tiny Whale by Planet June

11. Can You Stare like a Whale? by ea1701

12. Do the Jellyfish Jam by BitterSweet

13. Dudly Dinosaur by Marleen Hartog on Ravelry*

14. Gigi the Giraffe by Marike van Loo on Ravelry*

15. One Piece Giraffe by Cult of Crochet

16. Miniature Giraffe Pattern by Denizmum on Ravelry*

* You have to be a member of Ravelry to download these patterns. 

All of these patterns are free except for the last one. The person who asked me to make this round up wanted to find a giraffe pattern, preferably a small one, so I included this but it’s on the expensive side.

Amigurumi rarely come with a gauge so making them smaller is quite easy. As long as you keep your stitches tight, feel free to use different yarn (or embroidery floss or thread even!) with its corresponding hook to size them up or down.

Also, while you’re on each of these pattern sites, have a look around. Most of the sites I listed have a lot more patterns in their libraries!

‘Doctor Who’ Convention Report 5 (Day 2): Daleks, Butterflies and Jelly Babies

This is Anglophenia’s best roundup yet, complete with some funny bits, some adorable bits, and an audience response that we found legitimately shocking – and we don’t mean the Rory thing listed below (you have to click through to find and look for the “jarring” bit).

Here’s what else we’ve learned today:

• An interesting discovery that came out of this morning’s Meet The Stars panel is that Karen Gillan is terrified of things that buzz and fly, as a lot of people are. She’s scared of moths, she’s scared of midges, and she’s scared of butterflies. Actual butterflies. I know!

• Steven Moffat’s standard answer to any question about future episodes of the show is a delightedly sing-song “I’m not telling you!”

• Arthur Darvill told an amazing story of a man he met who said he had meticulously arranged his wedding day so that there was an hour-long break to watch Amy and Rory’s wedding, which happened to be live on TV on the same day.

• A very keen Whovian called Jordan offered a jelly baby to the panel, and got a jammy dodger in return from Matt Smith.

• Caroline Skinner was wearing a knitted TARDIS hat, given to Karen Gillan the day before by a fan.

• Due to collective silliness, all three stars of the show took to the stage for one of their Meet The Stars panels using huge balletic leaps. Matt then embarked on a keepy-uppy of a soccer ball, reaching 50 kickes, but only on the condition that people in the audience would donate money to the BBC’s Sport Relief charity.

• During an aside about the amount of times Arthur has had to play death scenes, Steven ominously rumbled: “and you ain’t seen NOTHIN’ yet!”

(This rather shocked the audience for a moment, and completely derailed Steven’s train of thought)

Monsanto Employee Admits an Entire Department Exists to "Discredit" Scientists

Monsanto’s employee, Dr. William “Bill” Moar, who gives talks on Monsanto’s products to reassure everyone that they are safe, perhaps forgot the event was public when he openly revealed that Monsanto had:

“An entire department” (waving his arm for emphasis) dedicated to ‘debunking’ science which disagreed with theirs.“

Likely, this is the first time a Monsanto employee has publicly admitted that they have immense political and financial weight to bear on scientists who dare to publish against them. Of course they don’t list this discrediting department anywhere on their website.

20 Spring Outfit Ideas

External image

WhatIWore: Any regular readers here at What I Wore know that when I love a piece of clothing, I’m not afraid to repeat it.  If I were my regular size these days, I’d be all about repeating the outfits shown here - 20 of my favorites from past spring seasons. I think a few of them might still work (the black knit maxi below is totally a maternity style that I wore for years before becoming pregs) and of course I can still rock a denim or army jacket. I just have to be a little more creative! 

It’s fun to look back and see the themes that define my personal style over the years - colored denim, stripes, polka dots, scarves and chambray. I’m nearly into my eighth (can you believe it?) year of daily outfit photos and I think it will be wonderful to some day in the future to look back and have not only a huge body of work, but a gateway into so many memories. I can still tell you what I was doing on most of these days… whether it was warm or freezing when we took the photo, or if I woke up on the right side of the bed.  It’s my personal costume history! 

I was thinking the other day how great it would be to do a ten year retrospective at a modern art museum after I hit that milestone. Wouldn’t you just flip out if your own mom had done something like this back in the late 60s or 70s?  Or your grandmother in the 40s and 50s? No matter how long I continue to write What I Wore, I’ll always be proud of myself for sticking with it this long. 

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of these spring styles for your own inspiration so I’ve linked up to the original posts by title. If you want more more more, head over to my GALLERY, for all of my outfit photos since late 2009. I’d love to hear if you have a favorite or have worn a similar outfit on facebook
