I bake because I love it, even when I'm covered in flour and cussing at midnight, sometimes especially then. I love to try to meet baking challenges, whether it's baking something for a friend with food allergies or attempting a recipe that is way out of my league and uses every mixing bowl in my kitchen.
I crochet, and do other crafts, because I can't draw. Okay, that's only partially true. I first learned the basics of crochet almost seventeen years ago. I did a lot of long and wobbly chains that summer. I picked it back up around seven years ago, bought a book, and taught myself everything else I know through a mixture of determination and helpful websites and videos. I really can't draw, at all, so instead of drawing I crochet the characters and things that I love. A lot of my crochet is geekily inspired by television shows, books, movies, video games, you name it. I couldn't imagine my life without it.
Eventually I hope to share recipes and patterns here, and hopefully some helpful tips. I do other crafting besides crocheting, although not as often, or as well. In reward for sticking around through my nervous rambling introduction I'm going to start this blog off with a give away. One of my very favorite tv shows is Doctor Who. I adore the Eleventh Doctor (as I did the Tenth and Ninth...). To celebrate the fantastic season opener I made a companion all of my own.
