|This is my new Ravatar.|
October 1, tomorrow, begins the newest tournament in Nerd Wars. For the months of October, November and December I will be making projects that fit the theme of my team where we will earn points against other teams such as the Dr. Who lovin' Team Tardis, the Star Trek lovin' Team Enterprise, the Braaaains Team who love zombies, the Firefly/Serenity lovin' team called Browncoats, and...well, you get the idea. We will make projects that fit our team themes in categories such as charity, science, nerd culture, intellectual, technical and team spirit. Apparently we can also be very creative as to how our projects fit these categories while maintaining the theme of the team. What do I get out of it? Nothing more than having a bunch of fun with people who share my enjoyment of, well this time, vampire books and movies while making various fiber arts projects.
So, as I reach in to find my inner nerd (which apparently isn't a deep search) I will be sharing with you the fun of Team Bite Me. Wait! This sounds like fun? Well, hop on over to Ravelry and check out Nerd Wars. You might be inspired to knit cool projects like the R2D2 Beanie.
In the meantime, as I impatiently wait for my first Nerd Wars challenge, I am still busy working on my weaving, spinning and knitting. Sock one is done of Shelter and I am already a couple of inches into the ribbing of Sock two.
New yarns are in the works. Right now one ply of my Alpaca and one ply of gorgeous Merino hand dyed by CJ Kopek are ready to be plyed and I'm still plugging away on my weaving. I get a few inches done a night.
Spin, knit, weave is how I spend my unwind time each night. Now...share your adventures in fiber arts.
