IDW announced plans to publish new comics based on the channel’s clone-centric sci-fi series "Orphan Black," with a scheduled start of early next year. (x)
Mamoru’s superhuman daddy senses ruin R’s big surprise 20 episodes early.
"Do you know what argent means in French?"
No, he doesn’t, because nobody in Beacon Hills stays in any of their classes long enough to learn things like foreign languages.
I didn’t get as much done tonight as it would have been ideal to - handsewing trim takes a long time, it turns out :/ - but at least I got some work done. Only….. a lot more things left.
Ah, yes, time for more marathoning of Teen Wolf season 1 and sewing and learning More Important Lessons About Life.
I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility
Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
- circular knitting needles
- small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
