NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR NEWSIES! CARRYIN’ THE BANNER!

I think we’re going to see this in December

theperksofbeingalibrarian replied to your post “Knitters?”

I always go counter-clockwise and I always teach it that way as well. I suppose it would work just as well the other way, but I’ve never actually tried (as far as I recall).

diebrarian replied to your post “Knitters?”

Just be consistent! If you notice that your stitches look twisted, undo it and change it up, but… I wrap my yarn around counter-clockwise as well and I’ve never had a problem.

Ok. This is what I figured. I’ve never really thought about it before, but I’m supposed to teach someone how to knit, and I remembered when I learned something was mentioned about the direction of the wrap so I looked more closely at what I was doing. 

I’m gonna just keep doing what I’m doing.

Knitters?

Do you wrap yarn clockwise or counter clockwise around your needle before pulling it through the loop?

I just realized I always do it counter clockwise, knit and purl. Does it make a huge difference as long as you’re consistent?

New stills from the big screen adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps - including a look at Slappy the Dummy! - have been released. The film hits theaters on August 7, 2015.

How was I not aware that this was a thing that was happening? I will be there opening day.

I have a little over a year to reread all my Goosebumps books.

That is a neat mug jar to-go cup.

Why thank you. I got it at Target.

Three word beer review: go buy it. Revolution Rosa Hibiscus Ale

OMG I LOVE THIS STUFF SO MUCH. I brought back one can (from a pack of mixed singles) to try and fell madly in love with it. I can’t wait to visit the area again to get more.

Yes. Visit the area again please. And while you’re here you should also visit me

11 BOOK SERIES YOU FORGOT YOU LOVED
by From Our Readers 
http://ift.tt/1ln6G2q
How many do you remember?

My jaw literally just dropped. I’ve been searching for these books for so long. I never knew how to describe them to my friends or anyone when we talked about books we read as a kid, but this is it!! OMG I feel so much relief rushing through me D:

This article made me realize The Boxcar Children is basically a huge long series about homeless children.
IS THAT OR IS THAT NOT DEPRESSING?
Also I love kid’s books that are sibling based. 

OHMYGOD VAMPIRES DON’T WEAR POLKA DOTS whoa sorry that’s a lot of caps anyway I had that book when I was tiny and I didn’t even remember it until I saw this post just now and was suddenly overwhelmed by a wave of nostalgia and I can’t believe I could forget that book so entirely up until now wow just wow

Clearly author has not read The Boxcar Children. They may be homeless for a bit in the first book, but their circumstances change quite dramatically. No spoilers though
