Nerd Wars challenges

Typed hastily between stressing out about unrelated things:

Size Matters. "Your challenge this month is to craft something at two different scales. You must use the same pattern for both items."

...yeah I dunno.

EXTREME ULTRA MEGA BIG CHALLENGE OF DIFFICULTY. Your challenge this month is to Finish those WIPs!

But. I don't have any WIPs! No fair to those of us who actually finish projects. *sulk*

HAVE A PIECE OF PI. Your challenge this month is to somehow demonstrate the concept or some aspect of Pi in a project.

PI SHAWL PI SHAWL. Shipwreck or Vortex. Yes.


Too many options on the description of this one to copy and paste. I've queued the Eiki shawl, the proceeds from which go to Japan relief; apparently it is enough just to buy the pattern, not even knit it during April? But I'll knit it anyway if I have time.

READING RAINBOW. Your challenge this month is to create something literary or literary-adjacent.

The scarf I need to knit for Elayna is the green of House Tamra. I've asked whether I can do a thing from an as-yet-unpublished work. This is pretty much my one shot to tie that scarf into a challenge, so here's hoping they say yes!

Hydrothermal Vents and Deep Sea Communities. For this challenge create something inspired by the deep sea and abyssal zone life and geological characteristics.

We're gonna get all Peter Watts up in here. How, I don't know. I'll figure it out.

Priority list: reading rainbow, pi, Japan relief, deep sea. I leave myself open to ideas for size matters. I'm grumpy that my organization and efficiency blocks me out of a whole challenge. :P

EDIT: The "finish those WIPs" challenge has been amended to allow stashbuster projects. I am not the only person who finishes her projects!
