Arghh stupid tablet. All I just type is all gone!

Well, I am bored of myself for never having enough yarn for any project.

I got this two skeins of yarn, thinking of making a hat and a scarf.

Tadah! I finished my hat and started my scarf. I'm half way done.... And figured out I don't have enough yarn for the rest of the project. What should I do?

1. Start this pattern with other yarns which I dont know if there are enough for this scarf.

2. Continue using the yarn from the hat, and start the hat over.

3. Modify the pattern, may be 2 repeats instead of 3. But then I have to redo the finished half to match.

4. Keep the finished half, pretend to be cool... And used it as it is.
But then what to do with 1/3 skein of wool.

Here is the picture of my half done scarf...

Well scratch the wax paper idea. My printer was not happy trying to run wax paper through it instead of paper. I think that I am going to have to print and trace by hand. Better get to it!

I am enjoying all of the projects and ideas...I am determined to find projects I can do with minimal use of my dominant hand...ha..do we get extra points for our "nerdy, crafty injury handicap"? Grin

You and me both! Smiley At least my cast is on my left hand, so I can still use my right (and I'm a righty). But, options are limited- absolutely no crochet- I can't grip the work with my left hand. I see very heavy use of my Silhouette machine, and an abundance of pillows. It's a challenge to come up with things that I can do and fit within the categories. After tomorrow, I'll have 2 projects I can post (one is done, but I just need to gather up all of the pictures), and after Monday, at least one more, if not two.

I have tried freezer paper in the printer after seeing people using it as a transfer medium on pinterest so many times, but my printer printed a blurry mess on it. Does anyone know if there is a trick to making it come out looking like the actual picture you are trying to print?

I have had great luck printing on freezer paper.  I just tape it plastic side down to a regular piece of paper, print, then cut to create my stencil.  Is that what you had in mind?  I don't know about laser jet, but I do know that ink jet printers will not print on the plastic side of the freezer paper very well.

If you can't buy the same yarn again to continue on, then I'd say join a contrasting color of similar if not the same yarn and make a scarf that is two colors. Its a common thing that happens and looks nice.

Just say you did it on purpose.

Whew I"m so glad my latest project/thing is done.

I've been working hard on a presentation about the history of knitting and a historic pouch I knitted.  I shared these at an arts and science championship today and came in second place. Now that I have that project done I"m eager to focus on my nerd games.



It doesn't seem to fit any of the Nerd Games Prompts, but since I got to geek out I wanted to share.

I even wrote a paper

I've finally decided what I want to do for the Marvel vs. DC challenge, but I've only just started on it!  and it's HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  or, it would be if I wasn't using 28 count cloth again.  I couldn't help it!  if I had made it with anything larger than 22 count, it would have been somewhere around 20 inches long by 12 inches wide!!!  I'd have to have that professionally framed and I just can't do that now.  so it'll be smaller and I'll have to make do with what frame I can find.

Nope, not for a stencil - You are supposed to be able to transfer the image from the waxy/plastic side to a wooden surface, but I can't get it to print anything clear on the plastic side.

Maybe I need to try to tape it to a regular sheet of paper. My issue is that it got all crumbled up.
