It's Saturday, but these were all done by Friday. These are all part of the current round of Nerd Wars.

  • Project bag with crocheted trim. I got this adorable 11 Doctors fabric from Spoonflower. The challenge was to combine at least two crafts. I also made three other project bags this week. They all have their purposes, but some of them are super sekrit.
  • Disappearing Tardis dishcloth. The challenge was to demonstrate capillary action. Dishcloths soak up water. This one was made to look like the Tardis on my coffee mug does when it disappears.
  • Weeping angel. The challenge was called In Like A Lion, Out Like a Lamb. The point was to show two differing sides of something. I took someone else's idea of crocheting a Christmas angel to look like a stone angel. I modified it by embroidering the scary face and stuffing the arms with chenille stems. The weeping angel is well known to Doctor Who fans.

I chucked the sweater for the KAL in the frog pond and resigned from the KAL. One problem was the yarn. It was allegedly worsted weight, but was really somewhere between sport and DK. The other was the lace panel. When doing lace, I need to have a chart to see which way the stitches are leaning when they are knit together. This one didn't have a chart and my feeble attempts to create one were not successful.

Next in the queue: two pair of socks, two wee tiny socks, and a half dozen flowers.
