The Spinning Wheel  - 
 
I've been taking a spinning "intensive" class, focusing on woolen spinning. It's 6 weeks, and I've been chronicling the classes. It's been awesome, and I'm sad that tomorrow is the last day.

The problem with an Aran cabled sweater is that it takes a lot of blocking wires to finish, so I find that I have to block this out in stages.

That's fine. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I don't think you should disparage someone who does block or question why they would.

The problem with going to back-to-back weekends of conventions is that your creative juices doubly flowing and you feel the need to MAKE ALL THE THINGS.

This is kinda amazing. In college, I had to a self-portrait study in one of my photography classes. It was one of the hardest assignments I ever received. This video mimics that assignment, but has an added benefit.....It shows these girls how beautiful they really are. 

It'll change how you look at selfies.

They may have all they need.  That's what one post on Ravelry says.  I have an email in to the wildlife group to find out.  Will pass the info along.

GallifreyOne: Convention Report (Part I - Costuming)
I'm finally getting to catch my breath again from the whirlwind between GallifreyOne and Stitches West 2014. I've tried to write up my Con-Reports with photos, but I was a bit delayed until I got the photos completed. It's no fun to write up a Con-Report wi...

Mostly just a Crafty Geek Girl.
Introduction
I live in the glorious San Francisco Bay Area, and have a plethora of interests, amoung them being --- all things Sci-Fi and Fantasy, fencing, photography, books, traveling, music, cats, costuming, fiber arts, crafting, and just "Making" in general. I am capable of doing most of anything if I put my mind to it.
 
Consequently, I'm usually never bored.  I love my life and am always perplexed by those who don't enjoy theirs.
