Star Trek CAL – the Badge

Some of those pesky life things got in the way, so it’s been almost 3 weeks since I last updated. A big partĀ of that is due to my internet having tantrums and not working for various reasons, leaving me to chew through my mobile phone data, so I had to limit my net use. After […]

Star Trek CAL – Beverly Crusher

I’m still reeling from the Outlander season 2 finale right now, so I thought it would be a good time to get this post out. I had to wait for my daughter to go bed before I could watch it, as So-Ho changed the time it aired from 8:30 to 7:30, which bugged me greatly. […]

Star Trek CAL – Riker

It’s been a bit of a rough time around here, so I haven’t been crocheting as much as I normally would. My daughter developed anxiety about a month ago, and the last week or so has been pretty hard for us. She gave me a bit of a fright with it, as she’s only nine, […]

Star Trek CAL – Picard

Things have been a bit overwhelming here lately, as my daughter hasn’t been well, so I haven’t been able to crochet as much as I’d like. I have finally finished the first square for my new blanket – Captain Jean-Luc Picard. I love Star Trek: The New Generation, so I thought I’d start with him. […]

Outlander blanket – take two

I’ve started a Star Trek blanket, but for that I’ve used a 3.5mm hook instead of the 5mm I used for my Outlander and Doctor Who blankets. I don’t usually use that size hook as it feels too small for my hands (especially on bad pain days), but I love the results. So much so, […]

Outlander blanket – FINISHED!

After a week of a lot of pain (arthritis and back, and then some lovely wrist pain thrown in this weekend), and parenting stress (child with GORD/GERD who will be having surgery soon and who’s also seemed to develop some strong anxiety, which is a new world to me), I was able to put it […]

Outlander CAL – the banner

Oh. My. God. The episodeĀ Faith was a heart wrenching ride, with a phenomenal performance from from Cait. I was in tears by at least halfway through and didn’t stop until it was over. Having read the books several times, I knew what to expect, but holy crap. It was so much better than I expected, […]

Outlander CAL – alternate squares

I thought I’d whip up a few other characters, in case someone wanted to include them instead of the ones I’ve already done. As I mentioned in my last post, I won’t be including the written instructions for them as I won’t be making them as well. I have included links to the photos that […]

Outlander CAL – Roger

As I mentioned in my previous post, this won’t be the wee Roger we’ve seen so far (as cute as he is), but when he’s all grown up and known as Roger Mac. For those who’ve read the books, you’ll know all about him. I’ve included him because I think he’s one of the core […]

Outlander CAL – Je suis prest

I actually finished this square a couple of days ago, but because my back still hasn’t recovered fully, sitting at my desk starts to hurt after too long, so I had to put off posting it. I’m already halfway through the next square, because sitting on the couch doesn’t hurt much. For those who aren’t […]
