YOP: Weeks 42 and 43

Today is my BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!   I'm 7 today!!!!  Stop back later for a Blogiversary giveaway...It'll be open for a few days...

Since I was away last weekend, I did not post.  I have a few small projects to add to my list.

I cast on my dissertation, which is the previously failed Creekbed by Stephen West...I'm determined to do one of his designs.

I had three challenges to finish for this Nerd Wars round...Giving Geeks, I made a monetary donation to a local domestic abuse shelter....it sickens me that there is a need for these....

We also were to be inspired by LARPing or cosplay.  I found out what a LARP was during a season of Beauty and the Geek and, of course, the Supernatural episode with Charlie, LARP and the Real Girl......my team unity was also to be inspired by the creepy in Stargate...so I made Todd the Wraith....

The last challenge, I am still working on....we had to base it on an atmospheric event....and I'm going to go with the Northern Lights....I am making a pair of fingerless mitts from that purple/blue/green yarn I bought last week from Tess Designer Yarns...I have one completed....

Swap Partner - don't read!!!!    I have also cast on a Lucy hat for myself.....I had also posted hers on Facebook and my Mom has requested one....so with Christmas and her birthday coming up..I'll need to make her one...

Happy blogversary and good luck with the dissertation!

Congrats on starting your dissertation! I hate those failed projects don't you? Finding a way to restart them has a way of teaching one perseverance. Good luck with it!

Ho'omaka'i on your seventh year of blogging! Yippee! That is a great accomplishment.
How clever to liken the Stephen West pattern as your dissertation. I'd take a fiber dissertation any day. I'm sure you'll do fine this second time around.

Congrats on your blogversary, it's not often I run into people who've blogged as long as I have. Lots of folks get into it, then burn out and just stop. Well done!
