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.

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.... )

Okay there may still be refinements later on, but I've got my TARDIS blanket pattern pretty much done! I need to figure out how to draw the chart on the computer (I have it sketched out on graph paper but it's on like three rows because it's so loooooooong), and I'll be spiffing up the PDF soon when I get the other pieces done and the whole thing seamed. But especially since there's been such interest, I'm posting the pattern now, and I will then be attempting to offer it on Ravelry as a free download! :D

ETA: Realized, staring at my TARDIS bank last night, that the top tiers needed to be smaller. My internet died so I couldn't edit this last night.

I really need more knitting icons... )

So there it is. Feel free to use it, just don't sell it or sell the blanket so I don't get in trouble with Auntie Beeb. And if you do knit it up please let me know and send me pictures!!! And tell me if you find any errors, since this is my very first pattern. :)

HALF WAY!

I'm making a season 13 Doctor Who scarf using the pattern at wittylittleknitter.com, in KnitPicks Telemark sport weight wool. It's turning out nicely, especially now that I'm past the tan stripe!



I'll post pictures later, but if you're dying to see I've got a couple up on Flickr (though not of the bronze stripe in progress yet)

Well here I am, watched the New York countdown with Dick Clark (OMG I can't believe he's still doing NYRE! Go Dick!!) and now ABC has moved over to Chicago for the local countdown. They just showed the yummy food at Heaven On Seven (ha, was just at the Naperville location on Monday!) and they're switching around to different sites.

Anyway...HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVERYONE!!!!! 12 more minutes for Chicago, Dad's getting the Asti opened. :)
