Early Spring update

Hello denizens of the Internet!

I've been busy with life, work, work...LARP....more work....

I've been doing some knitting, some props work, and gearing up for the start of the LARP season.

But, don't think for a moment I haven't been crafting.  I've recently been working on slowly learning more crochet, as can be seen by these dragonscale styled fingerless gloves.

I've also been working slowly on a mermaid afghan in the shell stitch that has been taking forever.  Its wide, and I'm not the fastest at crochet.  It'll take a while.

Penpals are also a wonderful thing.  Over last year I have signed up with the International Geek Girl Pen Pal club.  IGGPPC for short, or IGGLE for the people who write to eachother.

To make things interesting, I've been doing doodles once in a while on the envelopes to send to people.  It's also a de-stress thing for me to just doodle.  I found that using Sharpie Pens are the greatest thing in the world to do the envelopes, since they don't run if by chance it gets wet, cause it's Sharpie!  Unlike their regular markers, it also doesn't bleed through the page.

I don't know when I will have time to make another tutorial, but I will try to at least post once in a while so this blog doesn't just sit and collect dust.

I hope 2017 is treating everyone well so far, and I will post again when I can.  Don't forget Earth Hour is on Saturday March 25th, from 8:30-9:30.  Knitting by candlelight can be kinda fun and relaxing.
