Calculator Back

I just finished the back of my calculator. I'm using two strands of Red Heart Worsted. For the first half, I was using Balene needles. Well, I got annoyed because 2 strands of Red Heart on those needles did not slide very well. So I went to the firefly frenzy sale at the local Joanns and got my bamboo needles cheap. Once I changed my needles, the last half of the back went much more smoothly. So here is the back of my calculator, finally finished on my nice, smooth bamboo needles.

Calculator Pillow

I have found a way to show my love for crafts, math, and chemistry all at once! I found a pattern for a knitted calculator pillow on ravelry. (Calculator) The pattern shows it in chunky gray yarn. I'm actually doing mine in black worsted. I want it to look like my TI83 Plus. Geeky...yes I know...but what can I say - I love math and chemistry. lol

I'm starting it tonite. I'll try to keep picture updates every so often so you can see how things are going.

Short post - I know. But I'm going to start my knitted calculator now!

Just Starting

I recently decided to start a blog so I have a place to post my feelings, random thoughts, crafting ideas, daily happenings, etc..

I guess all this info will be in my profile eventually, but I'll write it here too. By my title, I'm sure you can probably guess that I like space, along with chemistry and math. I do all sorts of crafting, including knitting and macrame. I play flute, pic, tenor sax, and steel drums. I love marching band!!! And dance...I LOVE dance! I've danced for 12 years now - tap, jazz, ballet, and pointe. Tap is definitely my favorite. That's everything I can think of right now.

Alrighty...well I guess that is a good place to start for a blog. I'll be back soon...once I figure everything out. lol
