Let’s talk about what an amazing person msmonster is & why I’m so lucky to have found her here…

Baby Boy’s set & H’s set. Feeling incredibly loved and grateful at the moment. I may have cried.

Great. Now I’m crying.

So a yarn store near my home town (the clay purl in Nashville, Indiana) handpaints yarns based on Harry Potter and oh my god why don’t I have millions of dollars so I can buy all of these.

That’s awesome!!

A hidden painting has been found by scientists beneath the brush strokes of The Blue Room, a 1901 Pablo Picasso artwork. He created both works in Paris during his famous blue period.

Art experts and conservators at The Phillips Collection in Washington used infrared on the masterpiece, revealing a bow-tied man with his face resting on his hand.

The Blue Room has been the subject of exploration since 2008 by experts from the Phillips Collection, National Gallery of Art, Cornell University and Delaware’s Winterthur Museum. Improved infrared technology allowed them to see a man wearing a jacket and bow tie, resting his bearded face on his hand with three rings on his fingers.

Technical analysis confirmed the hidden portrait was likely to have been painted just before The Blue Room. The experts are still still trying to figure out, who the man was.

So basically my bank screwed me over and took out two payments instead of one for my car loan. Long story short, I can’t get the money back easily or quickly and I really need that money. So. Emergency commission post.

Prices!
If you have an idea for something, but it’s not listed here, let me know! I’m able make a lot of different things.

Scoodies:  $40-$80+
 - Simple scoodie (one or two colors) is the base $40, but any additions can run you up to the $80+. I can do basically any animal and I love doing comic book characters (Marvel/DC is my favorite, but I’m up for whatever).

Hats: $30
 - Animals/characters/crazy colors. I can do (or try to do) anything

Snails: $20 - $25+
 - Simple snails (non character, basically) is the base $20 and any additions will add up to the $25+. As most of my followers know, I can do a lot of different kinds of snails.

Cross stitch quotes: $25 - $30+
 - This one is both size and complexity. Around $25 for a 4 inch framed stitch, and around $30 for a 6 inch framed stitch. I can also go bigger, but the price will also raise. I’m willing to make whatever you’d like!

As always, there are things available in my etsy shop: [link]
I do have a lot of the more recent crochet items already made (Hogwarts scoodies/hats, Mario scoodies/hats, etc). So even though they’re set as made to order, a lot of them can go out right away!

Even if you’re not interested in buying anything, I would really appreciate a signal boost!

Please do not repost, reblog instead and leave all artists comments intact, thank you.

The only difference between an experienced knitter and a new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (via nobleknits)
