Hi all!

I will be writing up a full convention report probably tomorrow or Friday (had to dive right into homework), but I wanted to post that I have uploaded my photos.  They’re all up on Facebook, and the last of the photos are heading up to Flickr right now.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/knitchick1979 under the Chicago TARDIS 2011 set.

Highlights of this convention year: Matthew Waterhouse & Janet Fielding trading barbs about knit Daleks, winning the $25,000 Pyramids of Mars game, getting tons of nice comments about my super awesome geeky engagement, talking wedding plans/ideas with Tony Lee, and getting Mark Sheppard to pose for a photo by Mad Girl’s TARDIS with the Traveling Duckies!

Full report to come soon! :)

I'm still in shock, it seems like a dream that I haven't yet woken up from. But yes, I am now engaged to [livejournal.com profile] rengeek as of yesterday.

Details this way! )

Hi all!

I know, I've been totally neglecting LJ of late. I've been super busy and I haven't really had much to blog about. Plus I started working on my new website.

But, I have decided to squeeze in some time to do a commission or two for the scarf.

Details this way! )


Thanks!!

I've been really bad about updating this journal, so sorry. Between computer issues (Lion is a memory hog!) and fundraising for Relay I've been super busy!

Relay is this Friday, and there's still time to donate! We have some awesome fundraisers for Team GEEK this year.

First up - this year we are auctioning off a hand-knit Doctor Who scarf and a hand-knit Dalek! I know a few of my LJ friends have been wanting a Dalek, and my friend & teammate [livejournal.com profile] wtf is delivering. Every $5 in donations gets you one ticket in the raffle. Donate to me for the scarf (please say it's for the scarf raffle in the notes field), or to Julie for the Dalek (again, please say so in the notes). Donations recieved up until noon on Friday will count (after that we'll be setting up & not as easily able to go online). You can also donate to us in person at our event & get in on the raffle!

The night of the event we will have photos with costumed characters, Disney Princesses and Ghostbusters, for a $1 donation. Bring out the kids or kids-at-heart to get a photo with their favorite character! Details on where, when, & how to get there are at our website, http://teamgeek.glomp.net on the event info page (there's even a Google map link!) We'll also be selling sweet treats, raffle tickets for some fun items (including Ravinia lawn tickets), and face painting!

Last, but certainly not least, we have an online auction going on! Check out the lots & details at our team blog, http://teamgeek-relay.blogspot.com/

Think dry thoughts for us Friday night, and please come join us if you're local! We'd love to see you!

Hi all!

Yes, I'm alive. I've been busy but nothing really noteworthy enough to update here. Until now!

Some of you may remember that last year I raffled off a knit Dalek to raise money for my Relay for Life team. Unfortunately those darn Daleks are painful to knit & I have retired from doing so. So instead this year I will knit a Fourth Doctor scarf instead!

It will be raffled off in the same way - one entry for every $10 in donation to my Relay bank as long as you mention the raffle in the note field. So, donating $30 will get you three entries.

I have some of the yarn (I ended up using way less than expected on the Season 16/17 scarf I just did), so I just need to pick up three skeins and I can start. I will have enough for either a Season 12, Season 13, or Season 14.


[Poll #1755418]

Yesterday was the best most awesome Saturday, not just because it was Sweetest Day and for the first time in many years I actually had a reason to care, but also because [livejournal.com profile] bacon_fiend was in town and we had an Order of the Blue Box gathering!!

(Warning: NOT at ALL dial-up friendly!!)

Here come the drums here come the drums! )

So, we're still working on the plan for the next Whoniverse Photoshoot (coming up on Saturday October 23rd!), so I thought I'd put up a poll to get an idea of where people would like to have the shoot. Not just for this shoot, but it'll help for future shoots too ;)

And again don't forget to mark your calendars for October 23rd!

Hi all!

Sorry for not posting the winner earlier but after being up for 26 hours straight with only closing my eyes for about 5 minutes while Carole showered, I kind of needed to pass out. So I did for about five hours and now I'm a bit more awake & coherent.

Relay for Life! )

The Dalek winner is.... )

Day 30 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

I've been procrastinating on this last day of the meme because frankly I'd run out of ideas for the "Whatever tickles your fancy" days (srsly there are too many!)

So I've finally decided, I'll give y'all a preview of a Doctor Who story I'm working on right now (first fic I've written in months actually, I've been running up against horrid writer's block). It's just the start of it, and I don't know when it'll be done because I'm still trying to figure out the full plot but I've been dying to share it. :)

From the mind of a knitter... )

I've got a little more written than that but this is just a teaser ;) Let me know what you think of it so far!!

Day 29 – Who You Think Should Be the Next Doctor

Oh I don't know... I'd say Peter Wingfield but we all know the Twelfth Doctor has to be practically in diapers. ;) I have no ideas.

Day 28 – An Episode Idea You Created Yourself

MUSICAL EPISODE!!!

Day 27 – An Episode You Wish Hadn’t Been Made

Does Torchwood count? Cuz I wish all of series 3 hadn't been made. Poorly written absolute trash. :(

For Doctor Who... there's really not much I don't like to be honest! "Love and Monsters" is about the only one I really don't like, and even that one has some redeeming qualities (like Moaning Myrtle... I forget the actress' real name but when she opened her mouth I was like "OMG MOANING MYRTLE!").

Day 26 – Favorite Who Actress

This one's easy -- hands down, Catherine Tate!! She is AWESOME! I love Donna's attitude, the fact that she has NO PROBLEM telling the Doctor off, she packs like me, and OMG in Journey's End when she did her Doctor impersonation, EEE! :D

Plus everything else I've seen so far of her has been amazing. Her Nan character is just too hilarious for words, and scarily is just like my Nana is starting to become. The "Nan's Christmas Carol" special she did this year was the funniest thing ever!

Not to mention, I heard one Doctor Who audiobook she did and she's so great with the different voices! There were a couple characters in there where I momentarily thought I was listening to a Big Finish audio and there was another actor in there. She's that good!

So yes, I am a TOTAL Donna fangirl, and Catherine herself outside of Who as well :D

Day 25 – Favorite Who Actor

Geee I don't know. *looks at userpics* Could it be the handsome former Time Agent Captain Jack Harkness?

Yes I'm a huge John Barrowman fan. I love him, I love his family (I've met his parents & sister who are all wonderful), I love his character.

After John it would have to be a close tie between Tom Baker & David Tennant. Though Matt is really winning me over more and more (he's so cute!!!)

Day 24 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

I'm running out of stuff that tickles my fancy so I'm gonna open this up.

Suggest audiobooks, Big Finish audios (cuz they're totally a different thing than just audiobooks y'know), fanfics, websites, etc to me!

I haven't been reading much fanfic lately but I could use some good fic. Tenth, Fourth, or Eleventh Doctor stories; or Jack's Coat/Doctor's Coat porn (there's not nearly enough of that out there!); or total crack!fic.


I'm gonna go get some soup and hope it helps clear this stuffiness. Evil sneezing!!! :(

Day 22 – A Who-Related Fan-Site

Hmm... I already posted a link to Witty Little Knitter, my fave Doctor Who scarf site...

So I guess instead I'll point out Life, the Universe, and Combom, which I haven't been keeping up with very well lately but is a great source for filming spoilers and the like :)

Day 21 – Your Doctor Who OTP

Hmm... guess I don't have an icon of it, but Jack/Ten/Donna/Ten.5.

Yes I'm weird. :)


(Canon OTP? I'm a total slobbering Janto fangirl, plus I adore Amy/Rory and I do enjoy Four/Romana)


ETA: I was so tired when I wrote this I totally forgot my favourite crack pairing: Jack's Coat/Ten's Coat! (yes I found a fanfic that had them making out and fell in love with that pairing)

Day 20 – The Character Who Is Most Like You

Hmm that's a tough one. I'd have to say Toshiko. Whenever I take those "Which Torchwood character are you?" quizzes, I get either Jack or Tosh or sometimes half & half (I srsly did in the one from the magazine). I tend to be quiet when I'm not in cosplay (I used to be worse! Most of y'all didn't know me when I was little miss super shy), and I'm pretty good with computers. Not Tosh level of genius, but I have managed to disassemble and reassemble a laptop and have it still work afterwards ;)
