The Force is Strong with This One

I like Star Wars.

This is a bit of an understatement, like saying my cats like catnip.

I completely avoided everything about The Force Awakens until I saw it. I didn’t want to get super excited about something and have to wait to watch it. While it does have its faults, I enjoyed the movie immensely. Is it the best movie in the history of ever that everyone should watch no matter their interests? No. Is it a fun movie that fits very well with the feel of the movies and the (non-canon) expanded universe? Very much so.

I’m still plotting out some sort of craft to make after seeing the movie. Perhaps a flag modeled after one of the ones from Maz Kanata’s castle.

Ask me about my Chainmail and Broadsword Sale

November? Really? That’s the last time I posted?

I spent all of November and the first week of December working on Christmas gifts. I even had a whole weekend all to myself without a husband (who was in Toronto, Canada) or my kids (who were across state with my in-laws for a family Christmas thing) and I got a lot done.

Then I got sick from either my daughter or husband. It started as a cold/fluish/upper respiratory thing, then morphed into an ear infection that I’m still fighting (but it’s losing. Finally).

It seems I have something of a reputation in my circles. Anything related to yarn gets thrown my way. I’ve seriously had the same baby Yoda hat linked to me by three different people from three different circles.

(While I can buy this pattern on Etsy, unfortunately it is a knitting pattern)

Problem is, most people can’t tell the difference between crochet and knit. There are a *lot* more knitting patterns out there than crochet (which I still don’t understand why). So while sometimes I get lucky and it will be crochet (Like the panzer tank slippers I’ve been commissioned to do; he *finally* got the yarn to me) most of the time it’s knitted.

I don’t knit. I don’t want to learn how to knit right now. I may never spend the time to learn how to knit. Continue Reading “Remember: Pillage First THEN Burn”
