Get to work! Also, no matter how much I try and figure it out, OOP only means Object-Oriented Programming to me. What is it?

OOP = Out of Print

There are a couple OOP historical patterns that are very good, but hard to find now.  I found two tonight, one for only $4.99 which is great.  I hadn’t been looking at it previously but one of the Pattern Review groups I’m in had a review recently and a few ladies responded with rave reviews.

Dammit someone needs to stop me.

I’ve just ordered the makings for an 1840’s bonnet hack, along with two OOP patterns for the 1850-60 era.  For heaven’s sake take my internet away so I can get some work done!

That looks delicious! I ordered the hero recovery sampler and tonight I’m drinking Exiled (Thor). It’s ceylon sonata, apricot, and toasted mate. Really yummy. :3

Ooo, yes, that is a yummy one!  I tried a sample of that recently, I think I got it at 221B Con?  Very good, it’s on my list to buy once I go through more of my stash.  I’m running out of places to hide tea and fabric.  I need to use them up.

Daunt has another Star Trek one coming out soon that I think you would like,  Uhura.  It’s Earl Grey Lavendar, green rooibos and peppermint.  Really nice combination that I will probably get once it is released.

Oh wow Uhura sounds amazing. I’ll have to try that one too! There are so many I want to try omg

Sorry to butt in but y’all are making me thirsty.

Any more tea suggestions???

I’m needing to supplement my collection with more tea I feel I need but might not actually need. ^__^

Join us on the Dark Side, we have tea and cookies and a habit of enabling each other.

(Seriously, I have Sherlock cookie cutters for my cookies and they are fantastic)

What types of tea do you like?  I tend to prefer blacks, gunpowder and spice teas, but have a few lighter ones in my cabinet.  Are there any in particular you’ve been considering purchasing?

I currently only own the fabric for the jacket, but have pattern’s for the shirt and vest lying around.

I’ve got a busy sewing night ahead and asking a lot from Daunt’s “Boldly" tea.
This tea is a great blend of blueberry, assam and an almond oolong.  I like it with a bit more sugar than most others, which compliments the sweetness in the blends.  I try to keep the steep time to 3-3.5 minutes because it can get bitter quickly.

I keep seeing photos and reviews of the beautiful costumes from “The Outlander.”  It almost tempts me to watch the show, but I have a problem.

I never could get past the first book.  Maybe I read it at a bad time in my life, but the whole fidelity issue raised in it tainted the book for me and I never cared to finish it.  My parents divorced due to infidelity, splitting my brother and I apart (people assumed we were twins we were so close) as he and my Dad moved seven states away with Dad’s secretary whom he married shortly before that book came out.  Fidelity in a relationship is very important to me and infidelity is an instant turn-off.

My point to that story is…

Is the show worth watching for the costume porn, or is just going to piss me off and hate all the characters?

Is the book series worth a second chance?

Have you ever needed to match your ribbed knit to your fabric but couldn’t find anything remotely similar?

Have you ever tried to dye your ribbed knit to match your fabric but realized it’s 70% polyester and it’s a pain in the ass?

Did you ever want to cosplay Final Fantasy and were reduced to tears because you couldn’t find chunky ribbed knit?

Don’t worry, you can fake your own.

All you need is a twin needle and two spools of thread, and you can sew your knit fabric to imitate ribbed knit.

When you sew with a twin needle it’ll make a sort of ‘pintuck’, raising the fabric. Leave a small gap between the two rows and it’ll create a pattern. This will work better with lighter knits, the one in the pictures is pretty heavy.

Once again, I set the instructions as captions on the photos.
