Episode 71: Creative Juices

In this episode, the girls recap their back-to-back weekend of conventions from DundraCon, GallifreyOne, and Stitches West. Then they talk about their overflowing creative juices that have been stimulated by the cons they attended.

Get Geeky

The girls give convention reports for:
  • DundraCon -- Sandy talks about her Karoake Larp
  • GallifreyOne -- EspaƱa and Jade send in field reports from Gallifrey
  • StitchesWest -- Sandy & Jade recap their adventures and well-gotten swag from StitchesWest.

Get Crafty!

The girls have not just ONE, but TWO craft-a-longs in progress....  Check out the Geek Girl Crafts forums on G+ and Ravelry:

  • Project: Baby Sweater
  • This is a variation on a knit-flat top down raglan that I’ve seen in a ton of other places.  I chose this one because it’s designed to be joined in the round after only a few buttons. Size 7 needles, Caron Simply Soft in black…wait, a black baby sweater?  The baby’s nickname is Toothless! So I’ll be embroidering the dragon from How to Train Your Dragon on the front.  The chart for that design is here.

  • lots of hexies
