I am a geek. I love the fact that I am, in fact, a geek. To that end, I play, D&D, computer games, am a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and am currently finding my personal comic book hero.
So recently, on Twitter, a geek call went out to those of us who play with yarn. True to form, I responded.
Every Thursday night (or now, Friday afternoon, since my work has me on a very very early shift), I get onto Discord with a couple of my friends and we all watch Critical Role together on Twitch. I love the show, the game, and the characters.
When the call came, from fellow yarnie, Danie, to test knit a shawl inspired by one of the characters, I couldn’t let that pass me by. I’m a new knitter, but am ALWAYS looking for ways to increase my knowledge and skill.
She has graciously allowed me to blog about it, so I will post photos and whatnot here. *insert inner fan squee here*
I went shopping yesterday and picked up a couple of bags of buttons, and some yarn. The plan is to cast on tomorrow (which is Thursday, and thus Critical Role Night), but a bit problem is lays ahead. Which yarn do I use?
Whichever yarn I use, I’m already excited about this project, and I hope to do it justice. Thank you so much Danie!
