I am knitting socks for someone whose foot I do not have access to because she lives in another state.

Her Foot length is 9.5”.  How long do I make foot?

Thanks muchly.

I usually use the chart here.

Marry me?

Only if we can have a Sleeping Beauty themed wedding…

Old school Sleeping Beauty or Maleficent Sleeping Beauty?  I am willing to negotiate a mash-up.

Can I be Maleficent?  No green face paint, just awesome clothes.

You know I’m a seamstress, too, right?

A mash up is awesome as long as there is spinning!

HOW DOES THIS WORK?   HOW DO YOU TURN PAGES?  TELL ME! I MUST KNOW!

I use my Nook or read on my computer (mostly fanfic) but I’m not bothered by regular stopping to change pages or scroll down.  It also has to be an easy knit.

Remember a while back I posted Coulsnail?  Well I found Hawksnail and a place to purchase the patterns!  All the Snailvengers are there.  This tempts me greatly because it says the patterns are for beginners and that the current level of my crochet skills.

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ
This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Green_Wall
it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!

Oh yes, acacia trees.
They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.
And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.
And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.
Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.
So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.
Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).
This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.

Fantastic.

The Great Green Wall, to resist the encroachment of the Sahara. Fascinating.

No. 169 - “Fedora Enlightenment” 

The guys gets some unwanted advice on the art of women while at the bookstore. This is certainly a No Fedora/Brony Flex Zone indeed.
