Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas!


Merry Christmas everyone! We've got Z's family in town staying with us and spent the day marathoning our favorite holiday MST3K episodes and cooking up some Chipotle style cilantro lime rice and carnitas. All of the stress and anxiety that went into planning the holiday is finally over, and I'm currently curled up in my kigurumi with a cup of cocoa and some "Ocarina of Time." It's marvelous.  I hope you all had a most excellent holiday!

Introducing the Stitch + Bitch Feminist Book Club!


I'm super stoked to announce an idea Meg and I have been working on for a while; the Stitch and Bitch Feminist Book Club! What might this super rad sounding club entail, you may ask? Stitching and bitching of course! That is to say, we'll be reading one bad ass girl power book every month, then getting a group together to knit and discuss what we've read over beer and pizza, you dig?

If you find yourself saying, "Woah! This sounds awesome but you're in Denver and I live in Reno/Chicago/Fargo/Minnesota/Buffalo/ Toronto/Winslow/Sarasota/Wherever, Man," that's okay! We actually have a few friends from out of state who will be joining us via Skype and Facetime as it is, and would love to invite you to dial in using the magic of the interwebz as well.

You'd probably like some more details, yeah?

The first meeting will be held on Saturday, January 10th 2015 from 3PM-5PM MST.

We will be reading and discussing Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Femism Matters by Jessica Valenti. You can score yourself a pre-loved copy on Amazon for less than $5.

Since we don't have experience with this whole "leading deep, meaningful discussions" business, we'll be using this discussion guide to lead our banter during the meetup.

I'll be working on this sweet Duotone Cowl during the meeting. Be prepared with your works in progress or new projects in hand.

If this sounds like your jam and you'd like to join, please send me an email at abracadaverblog@gmail.com so we can exchange Skype IDs or phone numbers and we'll get you in on the action.

We've got a great in-person group lined up so far, and would love to have some more far-away faces, so don't be shy! Let's make some shit, talk some shit and smash down the patriarchy!

Wishlist // Sweater Weather

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

While the rest of the internet seems to be in love with the colder months of the year, I'm personally a fan of summer. I will always prefer sundresses to sweaters, but living in Colorado, I'm more or less forced to bundle up eight months of the year. To combat the cold weather blues, here's a little wishlist dedicated to some of the coolest sweaters I've stumbled across on the web.
