|In full blown nerdy swing this weekend - giggle, snort!|
The two granny squares up there will be joined by a few more so I can send them off to complete the Giving Geeks challenge. They are headed to South Dakota to help a charity called "Afghan Squares for Pine Ridge". I really liked the information on the group so I joined them on Ravelry and will be donating all year - as my way of giving back to my daughter Peanut's new place of residence during the duration of her college career.
The beautiful rainbow square up there is answering my Scientific challenge in a most creative way. The prompt was about anatomy and getting to the 'guts' of it all, which immediately made my stomach flip... and some of the finished projects made it flop. I mean seriously, who knits a dissected frog and what do you do with it when you're done? I certainly wouldn't cuddle up with and I know Hobbit wouldn't either... but at least it is the only dissected frog that doesn't smell of formaldehyde - bonus! Y'all know that I am hyper-competitive (in a good-nature way) so I wasn't going to let this challenge get the better of me - and so I am creating a dishrag in the same colors as a Neuro Scan. Yeah, that's right - you can't keep a good geek down. I should be done with it today and it will more than likely end up with a few friends to become my mama's Christmas present... oh, Mama - don't read that... move along... there was nothing to see there...
Changing subjects for the sake of saving Christmas - what do you think of the new format? I wanted to try it on for size. There are a few features I miss right off the bat (post tag searching, blog roll list) but I think it might just be that I haven't figured it all out yet. If you look up to the left side where it says "Magazine" and has an arrow - if you click there, you can see this blog in other formats, even Classic. There was just something about this design that drew me in - although I am still trying to figure out how to do a few things, I think I might be digging it. What say you?
