I may have mentioned something about the Nerd wars group on Ravelry at one point or another, it’s a fun crafting tournament of geekiness and I’ve participated in tournament 3 and tournament 4 on Team Pineapple (which is based on my favorite tv show Psych) I really love the fun we Pineapples have and I want to take a quick moment to thank a few people:
Our team captain: laweinberger
Our team manager: Loveofnature
Our team blogger: lebeau
knittinfiasco (who introduced me to the team)
and all the rest of my fellow Pineapples!!
I’m hoping to be on Team Pineapple for T5 as well (since it’s where all fans of delicious flavor tend to end up ;))
I had a lovely surprise at the end of round 4, I won the beautiful yarn you see to the right in a drawing!!! So thank you Oddstitch, laweinberger, and Loveofnature!!!! I don’t yet know what I’ll make with it but I’m sure I’ll think of something!
Congratulations to the Nerd wars T4 champion; Team Rangers!! And to the runner-up; Team Squints!!
And if anyone’s interested in joining in all the Nerd wars fun, sign-ups are May 15 – 26, 2012.
I have a few projects that I thought I would share, I’m debating on what to start next…. Probably another shawl 🙂 And I have a slip stitch and lace scarf that I’m working up (and I’m still working on my freeform project but that one will take a while!)
First up, I finished the Elise shawl and I love this pattern!!! Highly recommend it 🙂 Especially if you’re not to sure about starting a lace project, I love lace (and thankfully it’s making a comeback in crochet!) but it can be intimidating if you’ve never done it before.
Next is a skinny ruffle scarf that I made up the pattern for (will be making plenty more, it’s a fun and quick project) I used this in a challenge on the Ravelry forum Nerd Wars (Go Team Pineapple!!!!!) This is my second tournament but first time I’ve actually had time to participate so hopefully I’ll a few more projects to turn in.
And lastly, I crocheted a lacy necklace and added a really pretty pendant (I will probably be making more of these as well, I love thread crochet but necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are about all I have the patience to do, no doilies 😦 Which is especially bad since I started crocheting because I fell in love with a pansy doily :-))
