Join me as I share my crafty journey with you. I continue to expand my repertoire of hobbies. I knit, sew, crochet, bead and probably most importantly am a lover of science fiction. Occasionally I even pick up a book. I play Nerd Wars for Team Stargate Command which consumes most of my time.

Two more challenges done

     I've finished and posted two more challenges.  For Nerd Culture, the Wormhole Hat.
I used the Hurricane Hat pattern and Spud and Chloe sweater.  I enjoyed knitting with it.  Its a cotton/wool super wash blend.  Now that its finished its starting to shed.  I'm not sure how I feel about that.  Perhaps I'll check out these super wash qualities and see if it holds up to $14.00 a skein.  I love the drape of the finished fabric.  Its very sweater like.  Its great yarn, but... we'll see. 

     For the Technical challenge, Schrodinger's paw:
This one I've done before.  It will be a set, now that I have two.  I want to use this pattern to make a double knit potholder too.  I haven't exactly figured out the logistics of that yet.  I think if I do the pattern on just one side and follow the established stitches on the other side it should work.

     As promised Liberty Wool:
  Very pink!  With some purple and I think green.  I cant wait to try this.  I probably wont be saying that once I start but, oh well.  Learning new techniques is supposed to be challenging and hopefully rewarding enough to do it again.  At least the yarn is awesome.  I can always re-purpose it.
