New outfit for Iri! I've been really obsessed with an artist called japhers over on tumblr's work lately, so I wanted to incorporate some of their fashion into Iri's design! Plus... he just needed a new outfit. I wasn't feel the old one anymore.

I think a lot of people forget that etiquette isn’t just arbitrary rules to be snooty about. They’re literally to try and make things easier for everyone in the community. And while etiquette isn’t necessary 100% of the time (like with close friends) it does give people a shared base to work from to build relationships. Also, if someone is polite but immoral or mean, courtesies can be dropped to deal with their bs. Unfortunately, a lot of society would rather be polite than moral or nice, and that’s another problem that I do not have the energy to rant about currently.

Absolutely frothing at the mouth for a spicy noodle bowl. I didn't eat then for the past like 2 months bc I hadn't been working and I'd sort of forgotten about them until a few days ago.

They make working so much more pleasant when I know I have good tasting microwave noodles at my disposal. Most of the time I only eat one, but sometimes two and they're such a huge mood boost.

Sure, they're .75 cents, .50 cents more than regular ass packets of maruchan but you know what? I get a free bowl, it's spicy and it's a hell of a lot tastier. I can handle 1.50 a day for just a little a little bit more mental sanity.

I would love to have a tutorial on the moss stitch sometime if you don't mind!! (and I'd love to learn how to do it in round too, your little bag is so cute and I really want to try to make one now!! XD)

Cool okay. So I realized when I started looking for an already written up tutorial for moss stitch, that what I refer to casually as 'moss stitch' is not the traditional moss stitch, but it does hinge heavily on the same principal.

So here's a very good demonstration of normal moss stitch done with single crochets:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rF1A_w7U4s8 However, the moss stitch I do (and I cannot for the life of me find the original page I learned it from) I think was called bleeding moss stitch, and it was done with half double crochets and instead of just putting the stitch in the chain from the previous row, you put it in the stitch of the half double in the row below that. - The more I reread that sentence, the more I feel like its super confusing, so I figured i'd make a full on tutorial for this.


So, this version of moss starts off very similar:

After chaining out your foundation row, just alternate between chaining and putting single crochets in every other stitch.

Now, instead of putting single crochets in the spaces you left open on row one (as you would with traditional moss stitch) instead, put a half double crochet in the chains you skipped on the foundation row, filling in those gaps. Each row, like regular moss stitch, can't start or end with a chain, so instead put a single crochet there to make your edges neat.

The next row expands on the same established pattern, but shows off the other way to start and end the round as to correctly stagger the gaps and maintain neat edges. This time you're putting the half double crochets into the tops of the single crochets made in row 1. Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you're satisfied with the length of the piece.

To finish off the pattern and make it all nice and pretty and square, instead of chaining between half doubles, you'll want to put single crochets in the tops of the row 3s half double crochets.

The traditional moss pattern ends up feeling sort of lacey, especially if you do it with half double or double crochets. But this version is much sturdier and it actually comes out feeling like a fabric that you can use for just about anything. When I do my pot holders I always use bleeding moss, I've adapted it into bags (which, its gets crazy on those increases, lemme tell ya), literally anything that requires a square panel, I much prefer to put moss stitch on it because I love the texture and it can work up very cool patterns when used with a variegated yarn.
