Knotty Lamb is having it final Knit & Sip of the summer. "Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 29, from 1-4 p.m.," the store writes. "We will have Apolloni Vineyards giving free wine samples and one of our very talented independent dyers Savvy Skeins will be here all the way from Texas with her beautiful trunk show!" Knotty Lamb is at 2003 19th Ave. in Forest Grove. Twisted is having a trunk show. " 'Journey: A Collaboration' is one of our favorite recent books," the store writes.
I don't watch "Game of Thrones." There. I said it. I've read the books and they were fine, but I can't deal with the graphic violence on that show. Nonetheless, I do adore dragons, and I have been known to check out YouTube just to see the show's dragon scenes. (Honestly, who hasn't wanted a gigantic pet that adores you, regards you as its mom and will happily flambe anyone who bugs you?) So for you all "Game of Thrones" and dragon fans, here's a pattern collection for you. Dragon Sind.
The reasons I love Ravelry are many and varied. Among them: When you notice that Shark Week is coming up - it begins Sunday, July 23 - and you idly wonder if it would be possible to do a roundup of shark patterns, by God, Ravelry is there for you. Below is a but a small sampling of Ravelry's shark offerings. You can embellish them to make them as bloody (or as friendly) as you like. Enjoy. Hammerhead shark stuffed toy. Hammerhead sharks have to be among the most peculiar/scary creatures on this earth.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
