What’s new Wednesday
We had a busy weekend. On Saturday afternoon we went to the open house at the Dallas Makerspace. We met a lot of really lovely people. We had a great time, our daughter learned how to make a cute little wolf..via “sew by numbers” check out my favorite “sew by numbers” character , we saw a working R2-D2 robot, and I won a neat Lilypad kit (it makes a wear-able, program-able l.e.d. lit computer thing-y) My husband was very excited.
As you could tell from my description, I am still a bit confused about what it does.
What I learned Saturday, what I am most excited to share with you is loom knitting. I have been wanting to learn how to knit. Like forever.
There was a lovely lady knitting when we arrived at the Makerspace, I spent a long time talking to her.
She was knitting a Jayne Hat. As in Firefly, let me show you…..
A better view of the hat type she was knitting.
As a Firefly fan, I was very impressed with her choice. :) Yes, I’m a Sci-Fi geek-ette.
Anyhoo…. I was suitably inspired. I’ve been a knitting fool since Sunday. So far I have knitted the following.
Is it true knitting? I don’t know. It is fun, I am being productive, and I am not frustrated by the learning curve.
I’m calling it a win.
What new things have you been up to lately?
