Introduction to the Stripe-Along 2021

Hello, wonderful makers!!! I thought it time that I highlight the first of two Alongs going on in the year of 2021. The second is the Stripe Along 2021.
Here’s a bit of background on the Along and how it came about:
I realized that I’m down to 3 more skeins of Desert Vista Dyeworks’ stripey yarn (as of December 2020). As I have enough stripey yarn to get through a full year if I continue knitting a pair a month, I have decided to start an Along for those who like stripes of ANY kind. This along will run all year long.
I’ll be using #sdlstripealong2021 on all Social Media.
Rules:
  • The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 with stripes will count.
  • You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
  • Colorwork, Fairisle, Stranded Colorwork, Double Knitting, and Intarsia will count, as long as the colors you use are bright and cheerful.
  • A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. There is no need to enter the FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it took you to complete each project, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers.
    • If you started and finished the project in 2021, you can enter your FOs 2 total times.
    • If you started and finished the project in 6 months time, you can enter your FOs 3 total times.
    • If you started and finished the project in 3 months time, you can enter your FOs 4 total times.
    • If you started and finished the project in 2 months time, you can enter your FOs 5 total times.
    • If you started and finished the project in 1 months time, you can enter your FOs 6 total times.
Prizes:
  1. A skein of yarn by West Yorkshire Spinners called the “Fairy Lights” colorway. Pattern is included!
  2. @Pat (loonyhiker) has offered one of her lovely patterns. You can look at her patterns on Lovecraft, or on Rav. https://www.lovecrafts.com/en-us/user/Pat-H/patterns/630f52b1-1e3c-4190-9e4d-c58fecb61daf or https://www.ravelry.com/designers/pat-hensley
  3. If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together).

I hope to see you there!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Introducing The Dream Along 2021

Hello, wonderful makers!!! I thought it time that I highlight the first of two Alongs going on in the year of 2021. The first is the Dream Along 2021.
Here’s a bit of background on the Along and how it came about:
I’ve been dreaming of saying goodbye to 2020 something fierce lately. In an effort to literally dream 2020 away, I thought to host a new along in 2021 where I finally cast on projects I’ve been dreaming about starting. I also have been (literally) dreaming about finishing projects that I’ve had on the project for a long time. To this end, the Dream Along 2021 was born. This year will run all year.
I’ll be using #sdldreameralong2021 on all Social Media. There is a thread to enter your FO’s on the Discord and FB groups (just click the links and you’ll be there. A note, the Discord link is an invite link. Our server IS searchable if it doesn’t work…).
Rules:
  • 1) The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 will count.
  • 2) You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silversknitting). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
  • 3) The main idea I had for this Along is to Start or Finish things that have been in your Queue (either as UFOs or things you have been dreaming of making for years and haven’t gotten up the gumption to do so before. I’m looking at you Evenstar…). However, ANYTHING you finish in 2021 will count for this Along.
  • A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. This is based on the length of time the project has been in your Queue. There is no need to enter each FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it’s been marinating, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers for you.
    • 1. If you started or have had this in your queue more than a year, you may enter your FOs 2 total times.
    • 2. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 2 years, you may enter your FOs 3 total times.
    • 3. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 3 years, you may enter your FOs 4 total times.
    • 4. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 4 years, you may enter your FOs 5 total times.
    • 5. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 5 years, you may enter your FOs 6 total times.
    • 6. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 10 years (longer than I was on Rav), you may enter your FOs 10 total times
Prizes:
  • A skein of “Starry Night” from West Yorkshire Spinners, along with the pattern to go with it!
  • A pair of Louet Sonix circular needles. Size US 5, 3.75mm, 24 inch circs.

    Louet Sonix circular needles. Size US 5, 3.75mm, 24 inch circs

  • If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together).
I hope to see you all there!

KAL Breakdown 

  1. Stripe-Along 2021 
    1. Details
      1. I realized that I’m down to 3 more skeins of Desert Vista Dyeworks’ stripey yarn. As I have enough stripey yarn to get through a full year if I continue knitting a pair a month, I have decided to start an Along for those who like stripes of ANY kind.
      2. This along will run all year long.
      3. I’ll be using #sdlstripealong2021 on all Social Media.
    2. Rules
      1. The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 with stripes will count.
      2. You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
      3. Colorwork, Fairisle, Stranded Colorwork, Double Knitting, and Intarsia will count, as long as the colors you use are bright and cheerful.
      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. There is no need to enter the FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it took you to complete each project, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers.
        1. If you started and finished the project in 2021, you can enter your FOs 2 total times.
        2. If you started and finished the project in 6 months time, you can enter your FOs 3 total times.
        3. If you started and finished the project in 3 months time, you can enter your FOs 4 total times.
        4. If you started and finished the project in 2 months time, you can enter your FOs 5 total times.
        5. If you started and finished the project in 1 months time, you can enter your FOs 6 total times.
    3. Prizes
      1. Digital Prizes
        1. @Pat (loonyhiker) has offered one of her lovely patterns. You can look at her patterns on Lovecraft, or on Rav. Links will be in the shownotes, on Discord, and the box below.
      2. From West Yorkshire Spinners
        1. Fairy Lights” colorway and corresponding pattern.
      3. If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together.

 

  1. Dream Along 2021 
    1. Details
      1. I’ve been dreaming of saying goodbye to 2020 something fierce lately. In an effort to literally dream 2020 away, I thought to host a new along in 2021 where I finally cast on projects I’ve been dreaming about starting. I also have been (literally) dreaming about finishing projects that I’ve had on the project for a long time. To this end, the Dream Along 2021 was born.
      2. This year will run all year.
      3. I’ll be using #sdldreameralong2021 on all Social Media.
    2. Rules
      1. The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 will count.
      2. You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
      3. The main idea I had for this Along is to Start or Finish things that have been in your Queue (weither as UFOs or things you have been dreaming of making for years and haven’t gotten up the gumption to do so before. I’m looking at you Evenstar…). However, ANYTHING you finish in 2021 will count for this Along.
      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. This is based on the length of time the project has been in your Queue. There is no need to enter each FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it’s been marinating, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers for you.
        1. If you started or have had this in your queue more than a year, you may enter your FOs 2 total times.
        2. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 2 years, you may enter your FOs 3 total times.
        3. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 3 year, you may enter your FOs 4 total times.
        4. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 4 years, you may enter your FOs 5 total times.
        5. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 5 years, you may enter your FOs 6 total times.
        6. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 10 years (longer than I was on Rav), you may enter your FOs 10 total times.
    3. Prizes
      1. From West Yorkshire Spinners
        1. Starry Night” colorway and corresponding pattern.
      2. Louet Sonix circular needles. Size US 5, 3.75mm, 24 inch circs
      3. If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together.

 

  1. The Great Podcaster Craft Together
      1. Prizes
          1. 4 total copies of My “Proud To Be Me” or “Wizarding World Tour” patterns (1 per quarter). These will now be sent direct PDFs here or via e-mail. (this will be your choice)
          2. A free pattern from JavaPurl Designs will be given away per month (12 total) These will now be sent direct PDFs here or via e-mail. (this will be your choice) Please go to https://www.javapurldesigns.com/ and choose which pattern you would like. I’ll send it over to either your DMs or via e-mail as soon as possible.
          3. A $10 gift card to the wool warehouse in your area (Webs, etc) This is in place of the weekly Pattern prizes I used to do on Ravelry. These will all be sent out to everyone at the end of the year (in case there are multiple times an individual wins. This way the winners can make one purchase, instead of multiple)
          4. Every 50 FO’s, I will no longer be giving away patterns on Rav for the reasons I mentioned above. Sorry. I can’t in good conscience spend money on the site.
          5. From Desert Vista Dyework

The More You Know:

Details For Ep 100.

  1. Monday
    1. There are several videos I’m planning on releasing on Monday of the 100th Celebration week. I was thinking of putting these videos up at 12 Noon EDT on YouTube with the Live Premiere feature. Would anyone be interested in joining me at this time? Or is there another time you’d prefer? The reason I ask about times, is solely because I would like to post the show notes for each episode at the same time.
    2. On top of that, I’ll be recording my whole podcasting process starting with the audio recording to the editing of the final video. I’d like to do a Zoom call starting at 10AM EDT on January 4th. I anticipate this whole process taking me over 4 hours. Some of the stuff I say during the break in segments is comedic gold, if I do say so myself, and SHOULD be recorded… I know alot of it will be me staring at the screen and yelling at Audacity (the program I use to record) and the Editing software I use to edit the video portion of the show. There’s really no need to stay in the Call the whole time. If you hop in late, that’s fine. I have a filter on the Meeting room that will allow me to accept those that want to come in later on. I’ll do so right between the segments and during any breaks I may need to take while editing (as I probably need to head off to the Lu and to get snacks at several times, cuz I get a bit snacky while I edit… Dunno why… ) Don’t worry if you don’t want to be there the whole time either. I understand. Everyone’s got stuff to do. I fully expect to release a full behind-the-scenes video later on. If you’d like to join in the Zoom Call, please DM me on Discord, comment on the FB post I put up in the group, or e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I can send you the Meeting room and password that way.
  2. Tuesday
    1. Q4 Wrap Up video & 2020 Yearly Along/Other Stuff Round Up
  3. Wednesday
    1. Hey everyone!!! I want Wednesday of this week to celebrate this awesome community we’ve made around the Podcast. To this end, I’m going to need YOUR help!!! I would like to make a video that includes everyone’s favorite FOs/WIPs for the past year or so. Everyone is allowed up to 5 of each. Please send me these via DM ASAP. I hope to finish collecting these by Sunday, January 3rd. Please and thank you!!!
  4. Thursday
    1. Ep 100 will go live. I’m hoping to do a live premiere for the video.
  5. Friday
    1. Behind the scenes is live today.

      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. This is based on the length of time the project has been in your Queue.

Halloween Time Is Here…

Hello Beautiful Makers!

Halloween & Spooky season is here!!!  To this end, I’m going to be participating in VlogTober this year! This Blog entry will be where you can find each day’s vlogs on YouTube. I’ll try to come by every few days to update, just in case you happen to miss a vlog.

Day 1: “Don’t Dream It. Be It.”

Day 2: “No, it’s pronounced Fronkensteen”

Day 3: Now Sid, don’t you blame the movies. Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!”

Day 4: “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, HUH? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOOOOORRRR?”

Day 5: “Carelessness when dealing with a zombie infection can lead to your abrupt demise”

Day 6: I’ve spent so long in the darkness, I’d almost forgotten how beautiful the moonlight is.”

Day 7: “Well, I’ve read through that handbook for the recently deceased. It says ‘live people ignore the strange and unusual. I myself am strange and unusual.”

Day 8: “I am the shadow on the moon at night Filling your dreams to the brim with fright”

Day 9:  Now clear your minds. It knows what scares you. It has from the very beginning. Don’t give it any help, it knows too much already.”

Day 10: Villainy wears many masks, none so dangerous as the mask of virtue.” “Go ahead. Smile. It’s funny”

Day 11: Does The Word ‘Duh’ mean anything to you?”

Day 12: What… How… Oh, look at this! Sons of the pharaohs! Give me frogs! Flies! Locusts! Anything but *you*! Compared to you, the other plagues were a joy!”

Day 13: Ran the Sinclair family through CDIC. Trudy and the doctor didn’t have two sons. They had three.”

Day 14: “Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster, and the theory of Atlantis?” “Ah, if there’s a steady paycheck in it, I’ll believe anything you say.”

Day 15: Y’know, this was supposed to be my weekend off, but noooo. You got me out here draggin’ your heavy ass through the burnin’ desert with your dreadlocks stickin’ out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, actin’ all big and bad… and what the hell is that smell? I could’ve been at a barbecue! But I ain’t mad.”

Day 16: “Houses… are alive. This is something we know. News from our nerve endings. If we’re quiet, if we listen, we can hear houses breath. Sometimes, in the depth of the night, you can even hear them groan. It’s as if they were having bad dreams. A good house cradles and comforts, a bad one fills us with instinctive unease. Bad houses hate our warmth and our human-ness. That blind hate of our humanity is what we mean when we use the word ‘haunted’.”

(May be delayed. I’ll explain why I’m not sure in the Vlog…)

Day 17:I met this… six-year-old child with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and… the blackest eyes – the Devil’s eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up, because I realized that what was living behind that boy’s eyes was purely and simply… evil.”

Day 18: Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive. But not you. Not anymore.”

Day 19:Whoa, whoa. You better watch what you say about my car. She’s real sensitive.”

Podcasts Mentioned:

And That’s Why We Drink on YouTube 

GGKCS Podcast on YouTube 

Day 20:Sometimes, dead is better.”

Day 21:All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

Day 22: “I’m every nightmare you’ve ever had. I’m your worst dream come true. I’m everything you ever were afraid of.”

Day 23: It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It’s me. Me. If I concentrate hard enough, I can move things.”

Day 24:You promised me – don’t look at me like that! – you promised me you weren’t going to mess with that stuff.”

Day 25: We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast. But when we say this, we imagine that the hour is placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun, or that death could arrive this same afternoon – this afternoon which is so certain, and which has every hour filled in advance.”

Day 26: One, two, Freddy’s coming for you. / Three, four, better lock your door. / Five, six, grab your crucifix. / Seven, eight, gonna stay up late. / Nine, ten, never sleep again.”

Day 27: NEVER… ever FUCK with an antiques dealer!”

Day 28: I’m afraid to close my eyes, I’m afraid to open them.” 

  Sorry. No Vlog. Here are your clues or the day…

Day 29:Girls watch out for the weirdos.” “We are the weirdos, mister.”

Sorry. No Vlog. Here are your clues for the day…

Day 30: “Well, you’ll never forgive yourself, unless you get up, get dressed and you brush your goddamn teeth, ’cause your breath stinks.” 

Day 31: Oh, look. Another glorious morning. Makes me sick!”

Wrap-Up Day: November 1st: This is where I’m wrapping up VlogTober 2020. I give all the answers. I hope you had as much fun as I did this month!!!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

I will have a post where you can comment your FO photos. I’ll make sure to grab FO pictures from that feed throughout the year as well. I’ll be using the same type of numbering system we’ve been using to make it more streamlined, so if you see “Post # ___” as a comment, on FB, or an edit to your post on Discord, you’ll know which FO post # you will be. I want to make this as transparent as I possibly can…
        2. There isn’t a minimum yardage goal, so have at it!
        3. Single socks do count. Until you finish the pair. Each pair will only count once, sorry…)
        4. ANY project you finish in 2020 will count. ALL finished projects will count. I just ask that you post before and after photos.
        5. Poly-Dipping Is Allowed and even encouraged!!! If you wish to share other Alongs you enter, that would be awesome. This way we can participate in those Alongs as well, depending on the rules of the other alongs.
        6. In the case of Scrappy Blankets: 1 Stripe or 1 square count as an FO in this context. (Because who ISN’T working on some version of a Scrappy Blanket…Or two. Or three…)
