After nearly 2 years, I finally finished my Alice Starmore Aran sweater.
 
It took a lot of work (and some heartbreak) to finally finish my Aran sweater. I don't know that I would call it my opus magnus ... I'm not sure yet. I'll let you know when and if I work on something far more complicated.

Oh wowsa! If you're fostering dogs or cats for a recognized 501c-3 non-profit animal rescue, you can now deduct those expenses as charitable donations (just keep the receipts!)

Okay, so I found myself in the Gryffindor House (which was unexpected). However, as part of the my String Transfiguration class, I found myself already working on something that are my "House Colors". Go figure. 

So I'm double-dipping with my Eagle Twist Shawl....which I've already named Phoenix Wings because of the colors, which also ties in because of "Fawkes" from the Universe. . #potter-CAL

I got a chance to use the bag and found some issues with it. I took the bag apart to re-work it, instead of making a new one.

The final TARDIS messenger bag. And, I don't think it's too shabby. The link details my modifications to a commercial pattern.
One of the changes I made to the pattern was to change up the actual closures. I really liked how my Patagonia bag had parachute buckles on the outside, and I sought to emulate that look. I picked up one inch parachute buc...

I primarily do all of this stuff for myself. I pretty much followed the pattern as written, except for modifying the front flap as noted.

I finally wrote up the generic fingerless glove recipe/pattern that I used for my Doctor Who gloves (not to mention a few other projects). It requires the use of a tape measure and a gauge swatch. Let me know what you make out of it!

A full size Doctor Who scarf is a pretty daunting knitting project, not to mention really an impractical (and heavy) scarf to wear. I should know, I made one. However, making fingerless gloves in the same motif is a lot easier to manage, both as a knitting project and wearing on a regular basis.

Seattle's weather is perfect for knitting up a storm. ;-)
I recently went on a trip to Seattle for a bit of business, but I also had enough time for a bit of fun. I managed to see friends and family, as well as stop by the LYS that was about a 5-minute drive from my hotel. The pla...

My New Dress Dummy
Many years ago, I bought an adjustable dress dummy that was on sale at one of the big box stores to use. It was useful, but it had its issues. I could only really use it for hemming skirts or pants, but nothing for the upper body as it was not particularly ...

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.
 
"Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom."  -Death from Terry Pratchet''s "Hogfather"
