A New (Porg) Hope

I try to keep my ear to the ground for any Star Wars related news, so when this behind-the-scenes video was released for the new Star Wars movie, I was over the moon. I've watched it several times and paused it in multiple places to try and get a better look at all of the… Continue reading A New (Porg) Hope

It Could Make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs

Yes, this ship could totally make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. First of all, yes, I realize that a parsec is a unit of distance (3.26 light years) and not a unit of time. (But it makes for a great opening line while teaching my students about astronomical distance.) So, technically, Han is boasting… Continue reading It Could Make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs

In fact, there's a cool image online that compares the profile of a hawk (I think, maybe, it's… Continue reading I Crocheted a Stealth Bomber

Inspiration and a Personalized Sphere

*whoosh* *swings open saloon door and saunters in with crochet hooks* Just kidding. I've actually been here all along, I've just been working busily away at teaching and really not finding as much time as I've wanted to crochet. You know how you go through these spells where you don't crochet in a long time… Continue reading Inspiration and a Personalized Sphere

Doo Wee Ooo (that’s The Doctor Who theme)

I've been working diligently away at my Tardis, and have some progress to report. I used plastic canvas to make the inner structure, which I showed off last time, and now I've covered the outside with crochet. I've also stuffed it to give it a bigger on the inside feel, if you will. Now that the main form is… Continue reading Doo Wee Ooo (that’s The Doctor Who theme)
