GeekCraft Wednesday: Bonus geekery!

I have updates on three stores featured previously on GeekCraft Fridays.

1. I think I mentioned this earlier, but I bought 6 cross stitch designs by pixystitches from GeekCraft Friday #1.  I had to.  Hoping to try some soon.

2.  I also bought stuff from GnomeAcres from GeekCraft Friday #2. Not a surprise. 🙂 Since I’m trying to spend some time with Schrödinger (my neglected spinning wheel) I bought some more fiber, along with a skein of yarn.

Obviously I’m a little fond of this color.

Another pretty color called “No Place Like Gnome” (Obviously that’s a different dyelot than mine, but hopefully it will look something like that when I spin it up. Just way less even.)

 

From all the purple and green yarns to choose from [Hulk, Joker] I went with Maleficent.  Fitting, since I was actually given the nickname Sorcerist [sic] at work this week.

I message all the crafters that I feature a) because they might like to know they’re being written about (who doesn’t like praise?) and b) so they can tell me if they want their pictures taken off or anything like that.  She was supportive of the blog and said to let her know when I ordered again.  I said hello in the notes section of the order, and she included two mini skeins! I believe they’re in the Roller Derby Diva colorway, but I’m not 100% sure. Also I got a button. And I love buttons.

5. One of last week’s shops, ptierneydesigns was actually inspired by my last post. I commented that I thought her charms would make great stitch markers AND SHE MADE SOME.  Just off one thing I said!

I’m astounded and flattered that these came from my comment. And they’re Sherlock Holmes, so obviously they’re awesome.

I will be back on Friday with more geekery. I can’t tell you what kind, because I have yet to pick something, but I promise it will be fun.  I do not promise no Loki.
