A Special Two-Page Spread!



The big event of the week was Motor City Furry Con (MCFC). I worked security with the Dorsai Irregulars and finally finished knitting my sister-in-law's scarf. (No photos of the finished scarf yet -- I still need to weave in the ends and block it.)

This years, MCFC selected Animal Magic as the charity. I ended up supporting them a little more than anticipated as I couldn't let the opportunity to have my photo taken with Seven, their sloth, pass by. The way I'd intended to show my support was to put two of my cat beds into the auction. Which is what I did, but I was on duty when they came up for bid. I'm told them brought in $50, but I don't know if that's $50 total or $50 each.

The Furry Parade was great, you can see one small photo from it on the pages. I forgot to ask how many furries participated but there had to be several hundred. My favorite costume was the Fruit Bat; you can see her on one of today's pages as well. She was absolutely adorable. I also liked the horse sheriff -- he had hooves and that badge on his vest? That's either or grandfather or great-grandfather's actual Sheriff's badge.

Last Friday we took the day off from work, got up early, and drove to Chicago for MuseCon. For a brief description of what makes MuseCon special, check out this post on the Arts Nova blog.

I spent most of the weekend messing with fiber. When I wasn't knitting I was either making felt beads, needle-felting a dragon, or teaching someone else to knit. If I wasn't crafting myself I was learning about crafts new to me, such as Shibori, a dye resist technique associated with Japan, or attending a wonderful talk about Endless Amusement. This book, published in 1820, contains 400 scientific demonstrations, experiments, tricks, and projects for young readers, many of which are highly dangerous. For example, one begins "Dissolve 100 grains of mercury by heat, in an ounce and a half of nitric acid..."
