Episode 30: Star Wars and Christmas

Filmed on Saturday 12/10/16


Life Stuff

  • Week Off – All the craft, all the time.
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Read by Obi-Wan Kenobi and “friends” 
  • Fic – Posted a fic called Open Fire and a companion piece called Shadow – More Star Wars Time Travel, but with a very different outcome 
  • Blanket MAL 2017 – I’m going to be hosting a year-long blanket make-along for 2017. There’s a thread up in the group for prize planning. If anyone has any ideas for prizes that they want to see for the make-along or if anyone thinks that they might want to donate a prize, please go comment in that thread or shoot me a message on Rav. I’m going to be making 1 or 2 big blanket-sized project bags to giveaway and I’ve asked Gabby/Once Upon a Corgi if she’d like to contribute some mini-skeins. I’m aiming to do a random giveaway once a quarter or once every 2 months, depending on the prize pool. It’ll be open to knitting, crochet, quilting, weaving, whatever. WIPs will be welcomed and encouraged. Nothing needs to be finished to qualify for prize drawings. This is just some incentive for us to work on our (many MANY) blankets.
