Reposting this quote here so I can find it again, because LJ is way easier to find past posts on than FB is.

"Owls are wise. They are careful and patient. Wisdom precludes boldness. This is why owls make poor heroes."

Send me an owl, Mama Athena.

Every year I take a knitting project* to GenCon for those times I find myself chilling out at our game base without anyone pestering conversing with me, and every year my knitting needles spend the con (usually including the airplane travel portion of the trip, in fact) completely untouched.

So I'm not sure which is worse this year -- that, when I got out my swift to wind off some stash yarn, my first thought was "Hrm. What project should I have ready for Con this year?" ...

or that I mostly picked one. A lovely orange lace shawl. Did you know that 440 yards of merino/silk laceweight takes exactly 419 cranks on my ball winder to wind up? At least, each of the four that I just did took exactly that. KnitPicks Gloss Lace in Carrot is a damn pretty yarn. Still need to decide on a pattern for sure.

*Ok, ok, usually 2. Or 3. Shut up. I also take like 8 books BESIDE the dozen or so game books. I believe in being prepared.

Also, I need to get my hat fixed. After years of being the only one who's title didn't fit the rest of the staff theme, I'm re-titling myself. So I need to find one of those little stands that will do embroidery on hats or whatnot while you wait, in the somewhat local vicinity, so I can get all my buttons moved over. Oi.

(Note to self: plan out this year's buttons.)

Thanks to [ profile] clockworktomato, I was able to find a way to get my custom-designed buttons made! I should even get them delivered before Con!

buttons for my Con hat! )

So, pending delivery and actual inspection of the finished product, I recommend Mushycat for all your button needs! (He even does custom ones - the first two are custom, ordered this morning, and I've already got an email that they're in the mail today!)
