Ten and Eleven Sammich!
Over on Ravelry, there is a friendly competition called Nerd Wars. We are place on teams to our respective geekery and then knit and crochet projects to earn point for our teams. It started this year in February and we are now going onto our third three-month tournament! I've competed since the beginning on teams Tardis and Bazinga (and now Dumbledore's Army) and Wendy is joining this tourney on Team Bazinga.
erm... Penny sammich?
We have the opportunity to each make a total of 18 projects and complete a dissertation which will take three months. Will we actually complete that many? Heck no! But it's fun to try and expand our skill sets. I am planning on doing a dissertation this tournament for the first time and I'm pretty nervous. I'm going to be making these adorable Prairie Boots out of some yarn that I've hand dyed. They use several techniques that I've never used before so it should be interesting!
We'll be updating every now and then about our projects for Nerd Wars and my dissertation status. If you have a certain brand of geekiness and want to use your knitting or crocheting (or spinning or weaving!) skills to compete, check Nerd Wars out! Sign-ups are closed for this tournament but the next will start in February and it promises to be lots of fun!
