    Crochet Gif Tutorials: Star Stitch

    This is a tutorial in 4 parts:

    Part 1: Row 1, First Star
    Part 2: Subsequent Stars
    Part 3: Row 2
    Part 4: Row 3

    The star stitch requires prior knowledge of the half double crochet (hdc) stitch

    How many chains should I make to begin?
    Crochet - one example of a ‘real-world’ application of algebra! (Sorry!)
    Chain: 2 x (the number of stars you wish to make), + 4 extra chains. 
    e.g. for a row of 5 stars, 2(5)+4 = 14 chains. 

    Note: you don’t have to begin with a chain! To start a row of star stitches mid-way through a project, skip straight to part 4. 

    There are several variations on the star stitch. If you look at another tutorial and compare it to this one, you’ll probably find differences. This is the way I like to do it - but feel free to play around!

I don’t know if this is how you’re supposed to use a toastada, but it’s working.

    "Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

    "The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world."

    "[I]t is actually more expensive to be poor than not poor. If you can’t afford the first month’s rent and security deposit you need in order to rent an apartment, you may get stuck in an overpriced residential motel. If you don’t have a kitchen or even a refrigerator and microwave, you will find yourself falling back on convenience store food, which—in addition to its nutritional deficits—is also alarmingly overpriced. If you need a loan, as most poor people eventually do, you will end up paying an interest rate many times more than what a more affluent borrower would be charged. To be poor—especially with children to support and care for—is a perpetual high-wire act."

    there’s actually a saying among the wealthier i’ve known—“i’m too poor to buy cheap things.”  they spend more up front for shit that actually LASTS. where the rest of us can’t afford the up-front costs of quality, and end up paying much more, buying the same objects over and over.
