As promised here is the yarmulke I crocheted for Passover! Well I didn’t crochet it all myself, saltdragon taught me how to crochet and also helped me out a lot with actually making this so he deserves plenty of credit!!
We used this pattern (with some modifications) if anyone out there wants to make one too.

Sawyer was pretty upset she wasn’t invited to any of my families seders Monday and Tuesday, so I decided to make Sawyer her own Passover plate.
I tried to match up the treats as best as possible, Egg, Harosset, Shankbone, Bitter Herb, Parsley
I think after she ate the plate it’s safe to say Sawyer wasn’t feeling so left out.

Another Precious Passover Corgi Baby!!!
ADULTHOOD UPDATES: I’m having a crisis because I can’t decide which Pokémon to use on my team in X.
NEW YORK CITY UPDATES: walked past a guy reading loudly from a Bible on a street corner, randomly inserting variations on the word “fuck” into the middle of sentences with gusto.
that’s awesome! what color is it? if you feel like posting a picture when you’re done, i’d love to see it
Thanks! The main body is a medium purple colour and it’s going to have two bands of bluish black and peacock blue around the edges. I’ll post a picture when it’s done (providing I can take a good one), I’m hoping to have it done in time to wear it for a seder at my friends’ place tomorrow night.
And if anyone’s curious, I’m using this pattern.
I have never crocheted before and I am trying to crotchet my own yarmulke right now and I keep on oscillating between, "this is awesome, I’m doing great, this is so satisfying, I’m learning a new skill" and "oh no oh no oh no what did I do fuck oh no oh no"
I gradually realized that my own fiction was telling me that I could no longer ignore the feminine. While I was writing The Eye of the Heron in 1977, the hero insisted on destroying himself before the middle of the book. “Hey,” I said, “you can’t do that, you’re the hero. Where’s my book?” I stopped writing. The book had a woman in it, but I didn’t know how to write about women. I blundered around a while and then found some guidance in feminist theory. I got excited when I discovered feminist literary criticism was something I could read and actually enjoy. I read The Norton Book of Literature by Women from cover to cover. It was a bible for me. It taught me that I didn’t have to write like an honorary man anymore, that I could write like a woman and feel liberated in doing so.
Ursula K. Le Guin, when asked in a 1995 interview in Whole Earth Review what role feminism has played in her writing.
I started tearing up when I read that last sentence, which is something that I have also felt in relation to my own work. I hope that one day every female writer, artist, and creator—especially the young ones—can come to understand this too.
Io begs for matzos and wishes you a happy Pesach!
Let’s enjoy some cute jewish positivity for once with this Precious Passover Baby
