Cutting off a Few Heads -- Finished Objects
I finally got a few heads off my Hydra Project cut-off, in terms of finished objects. First up! The Viking Hat that I had promised for a dear friend. Then I finished up the tabi socks that had been languishing in my project basket. It feels good to get thin...

If you haven't donated to the Nepalese earthquake fund yet, this might pique any self-serving interest you might have....

Get a light for your own earthquake kit, and they'll send a light to one of their non-profit partners, including those in need in Nepal. Or you can donate $10.00 for them to send a light to those in need.
Give Light, Get Light. Sponsor a LuminAID solar inflatable light to be distributed by one of our charitable and non-profit partners to someone in need.

Another step towards freeing our world from a heavy dependency on fossil fuels.
It’s the holy grail in energy production: produce a fuel that is both carbon neutral and can be poured directly into our current cars without the need to retrofit. There are scores of companies out there trying to do just that using vegetable oil, algae, and even the microbes found in panda poop to turn bamboo into fuel.

Project Hydra - A Bad Case of Start-itis
Lately, I've had a bad case of start-itis. I was finishing my many knitted projects fairly quickly, so was starting two projects for every one that I finished. It was a form of Project Hydra -- cut off one head and more grow in its place. As you might imagi...

For Fanime 2015, I cosplayed Gogo Tomago from Big Hero 6. It was a simple and fun costume to make with very little sewing required.
For Fanime 2015, I decided to do a last minute hall costume of Gogo Tomago from Big Hero 6, because she's a kick-ass character, who is super smart, athletic and tough-as-nails. In essence, she is wicked cool. Her street out...

Something for you spinners and knitters. And it's free.
 
Want to know more about wool, sheep breeds and when to use what?

I'm only partly through the class, but what I've seen so far is really very informative and well made. And free. Of course it's especially interesting for spinners, but also for knitters as quite a few of the discussed breeds are available not only in fiber form but also as yarns.

It's my first ever craftsy class, but I'm rather sure it will not be my last one.
This free class with Deborah Robson gives you nuanced understanding of different fibers, & shows how to determine the best use for each type of wool.

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"
