My Favorite Geek Crafters

I'm a crafter, and have been since I was small.  I'm happiest when I have at least one active project (because, who am I kidding, I always have six or more sitting half-finished in my craft room).  I sew, crochet, knit, sculpt, pepakura, cross-stitch... and there is a lot more that I want to learn.

I will be sharing my own nerdy crafts on this blog, but this post will be a list of my favorite craft bloggers and patterns.

Since this post ended up much longer than I originally planned, I've hidden it behind the jump. Enjoy!

Obligatory Introduction Post

I suppose I should introduce myself.

My name is Kate, aka Chik Solo.  Right now I'm drinking S'mores flavored vodka and watching Captain America, because Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes out tomorrow and FX is playing it a lot this week.  I had planned to watch it on Blu-Ray, or at least on Netflix, because f*ck commercials, but I'm lazy and this was convenient.  Did I mention how good this vodka is?

I like crafting, gaming, and learning how to make cool things.  I read comics, fantasy novels, and history books.  This blog will be a space where I can write about my varied interests and make posts about the new projects that I start/I want to start/catch my fancy.

I need some more s'more schnapps...
