Black Widow is added to at least one fabric line up!
(She and Hawkeye are missing from the others, tho....)
I was at Joann's Fabrics the other day, and saw that they had fabric for the Avengers!  I was mightly pleased to see Black Widow prominently in with the rest of the heroes! They also had several other Avenger-themed f...

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.

FO Round Up for April - March
I just wanted to post some of the finished objects that I've finished in the past 1.5 months. I've been suppressing my start-itis syndrome by going on a finishing jag. First my completed tiger socks, using Regia. My cat informs me that the toes needed to be...

A message to the Big Companies -- girls want to help improve your profit margins! Give us what we want! More female characters in movie merchandise!
Remember the other day when I was very happy about the new fabrics at Joanns that I had found? Well, I'm not as happy as I was then. I'm still very happy with the Doctor Who fabric, but it's the Big Hero 6 fabric that's leavi...

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.

These are the prototypes of hats I intend on making out of geeky fabric so I can look stylish and geeky on the archery range.
I'm having fun with archery and am progressing slowly.   (Bare bow @ 30 yards) But as the weather is turning much nicer, I've been having a problem with the sun shining in my eyes. I tried to wear sunglasses while sho...

When someone posted on my social networks that these were commercially available, I very nearly squee-d, especially as this big box store is a 3 minute walk from work!

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"
