I spent a couple of hours knitting in the Gencon Open Crafting Room this afternoon. It’s such a lovely, quiet room and a welcome break from the Saturday crowds. Sadly I don’t have much progress to show you on my mittens. I ended up ripping back to the cuff of mitten number 2 after discovering a dropped stitch.
There were lots of other crafty things to enjoy at Gencon today, however, even though my knitting was a bust. Saturday is the biggest day for cosplayers (people attending in costume). There is a costume parade and a contest in the afternoon.
I admire the amount of effort many of the cosplayers put into their costumes. Some real crafty talent was on display.
Cardhalla was also in fine form this year.
Wow. That is pretty cool.
My gosh these card buildings being back memories. I used to do that all the time. How fun for all ages.
How did you keep it from getting knocked down?
You know, mine were never that tall. They were only two stories.
It makes me want to clear out my living room and buy a couple dozen decks of cards. But then…I have cats.
Stunning. What a view of all the card houses. And the cosplayers are awesome. 🙂 I am sure they make up for the knitting.
They definitely do.
