Have you seen the New York Times’ recent little slide show of different black lacy tights and stockings? It’s been passed around the home office lately, and it’s been keeping my mind on black lacy tights! We have quite a few varieties of lacy tights right now, and I’d be interested to know which ones you like the most!
Shown below are our Creeping Flowers Crochet Tights.

Here we have our Patterned Pointelle Tights.

Shown here are the Snuggly Pointelle Socks!

Finally, shown here are our Brassy Studded Tights! I know they’re not lacy, but we couldn’t resist throwing them in there to see what you thought of them!

Now I put it to you: which of these do you prefer?

wow: way of women

wow%20kinga.jpg
I just discovered Way of Women, a site produced by the girls at Sportmax Code featuring cool women doing cool things all over the globe. I love peeking into the worlds of creative people, and love that they’ve chosen a bunch of women I don’t know much about.
New features will be produced every 15 days, so check out all of the inspiring ladies they’re featuring now, like Miss Lori and her crew of Art Rebels, or half Polish half Aussie director Kinga Burza.

I’m really intrigued by these photos of an exhibition in Germany. I love the balloon tank, and I love the kids sweeping it up at the end even more! I saw this on Unique Lapin, who didn’t have any more information about the tank. I soon saw why – when I went to the main site where you can see the pictures, it was all in German! Even translated, the page didn’t have too much for me. Still, I really enjoy these pictures!

What is your job here at FP?
Designer for We The Free Knit & FP Pants
What is your current state of mind?
Contemplative… as I answer these questions. In general, future-oriented, optimistic and a tad bit scattered.
Who are your heroes?
I can’t say that I have any conventional heroes. I think I take most inspiration from friends and family members who are challenging themselves and me to think deeper and act with greater conviction.
If you could choose what to come back to life as, what would you be?
A second-wave feminist? I would have to participate in both reincarnation and time travel. Powerful!
Who or what is your greatest love?
That’s too personal for the blog.
Name one thing necessary to your happiness.
Change.
What do you hate most?
When people eat greasy food on the bus.
What would the name of your band be and what genre? What instrument do you play in the band?
My friend and I have been planning to start a video band called Crimes of the Heart. I might play my flute at key moments during the video performances, but mostly we would just try to have fun while tapping into some melancholic experience.
What color are you?
Indigo
What is your motto?
Fake it ’til you make it!

These photos were taken at the Paper Boat gallery in Milwaukee as Lisa Congdon set up her show called Life in Wonder Mountain. The show opened on Friday, so if you’re near Milwaukee check it out and let us know how amazing it is in person!

the ice tree

I love this “ice tree” created by Paprika for Domison furniture stores in Canada. Trying for holiday decorations that were more original, Paprika hung glass water bottles at various heights to create this ice tree. Why didn’t I think of that?

Thanks to this video, I want some LED lights for my bike so bad! I also wish I were able to do tricks like the guys in the video, but for now, just the lights would be cool with me!

Would you believe that each of these pictures shows part of a sewer?! The first shot is part of a sewer system near Niagara Falls, the second is the Tokyo storm drain, and the third is part of the sewer system in London. Aside from being very pretty, these pictures make me give some serious thought to the kinds of incredible structures that we have underground! You can see more pretty amazing sewers on oobject.

Love the last pic! That would be an inspiring setting for a photo shoot!

crochet zoidbergs

If you’ve ever seen Futurama then you’ll recognize these cute little crochet figures as Dr. Zoidberg, the lovable lobster-like alien on the show. I saw them and went crazy – they are so so cute! The first one was created by ThatNanda of Craftster. She used a pattern for a Cthulhu from the book Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden as the base, but edited it a little to make it more Zoidberg-like. Amber at Cthulhu & Cousins Crochet made the second one, based on ThatNanda’s pattern, and then went on to create a crochet Nibbler too!

Wow! So cute!
