This is the perfect knitting ring, but don’t take my word for it, check out the great reviews in my shop.
Last year, I got an email from a lady who loves to knit, but knitting had become more difficult due to arthritis in her fingers. The arthritis in her fingers was so servers that it was hard to hold on to the yarn while she was knitting. She wondered if there was any way I could make a ring that would hold the yarn in place and take the tension away from her fingers tips. I made some drawings, we emailed back and forth and finally I came up with this design for a knitting ring. It was an instant hit! This lady is now my greatest promoter and knitting up a storm.
Since then, I’ve designed a ring for 1-2 strands and 1-3 strands. Each ring is custom made from vintage silver plated copper or brass. A fun way to repurpose old silver.
If you want to see the other knitting rings just click www.etsy.com/shop/ItsVera And check the menu for Knitting, crochet rings.

This is GENIUS!

A “How to Train Your Dragon 2” project for gallery show at Gallery Nucleus!  So excited to be a part of the show and for the release of the film!

There will be better pictures taken…probably

The amount of detail in this piece is insane. 

Insaaaaaane!

Super cosplayer Jay Justice

I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"

Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.

My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.

I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.

Boo for people who need to be dicks to black cosplayers.

And yay for Jay Justice for being amazing and awesome.

Jay Justice is literally my cosplay hero. She is so freaking perfect just look at her.

I met this lady once and knew she was cool, but had NO idea she was this amazing.
