Random Acts of Battlestar Galactica & General Fangirling

Well, I was going through my obscene yarn stash and came across this yarn. It's a twisted compound of a tiny boucle and a thick black strand. I like the feel of it. Chunky and soft. My goal is to attempt to rock my shop all year with both warm and cool weather items. It's always warm somewhere just as it's always cold somewhere else.

So I whipped up this lovely scarf and named it Karl. Why Karl? Because my BSG love struck and I thought "When Helo was stuck on Caprica this would have been perfect for him." Yeah, it's a complete fangirl, nerd chic thing I have going on but it's not the first item I've named after a character of my favorite show and I promise it won't be the last. :)

It's back on Friday, April 4th at 10PM and I can't wait. I'm so thrilled they're not going with the Sunday time for the final season. And the S3 dvd will be out in March. Of course, I'll be picking it up the day it drops and pouring and obsessing over S3 until S4 begins. And then there's
my incessant prattling on to my husband, who loves the show but hasn't adopted it as a formal religion the way I have.

In other crochet news, I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to name the three lengths of hand/wrist/arm warmers that I've made. They're in a variety of colors and as soon as my latest Etsy purchase from Urbanrose of brass vintage buttons arrive, I'll be able to finish them off. They're quite nice in any length and I'll either name them after characters or possibly the colonies of Battlestar Galactica. When I look at them they feel more Colonial than Cylon but I'm considering a Number Six version. Then again, maybe a Number 8 would be better because I can actually envision Sharon/Athena fixing her Raptor and stocking artillery. ;)

I've enjoyed selling them off Etsy (without the whole BSG naming thing) but I'm pretty excited about listing them on Etsy. Here's hoping my warmers have a market.

I now return all who are absolutely in the dark about BSG and my past references to the regular pattern of blogging. On another note, I've nearly finished Dune: Butlerian Jihad and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It was one of those books that you have to just stick with even when you want to bail because you actually do care about the characters but are just so eager to know what's going on with them you don't want to have to sit through the process. I have to admit that the pace it set was quite a discipline. One down, twelve (or so) to go. ;)


  1. Yay! A fellow BSG fan!

    Unfortunately, I don't have cable, so I've been waiting until they come out on DVD, so I'm a _wee bit_ behind. The first season was soooo amazing! I've seen up through the third season now, and the fourth season comes out on DVD next month.

    The first season of BSG was one of the best-written sci-fi series in a long time. Add that to excellent acting... the show just blew me away.

  2. Absolutely! From the pilot/miniseries to now. I'm rarely so consistently dedicated to the show! I swear I can't find enough people who watch the show outside of the BSG Forum on Scifi's website. :)

    Thank you for coming by and responding. S4 begins on April 4th and though my enthusiasm will be running high, I won't drop any spoilery details in here because I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it. :) And you are so right, it's definitely one of the best written sci-fi series in ages. I'd go further and say it's one of the best written series ever. Honestly, the best show on television, that virtually no one is watching. LOL

    So will you be getting the S3 dvd when in drops in March? If so, you're going to love what they did after Gaius wakes up on New Caprica. Good times. :)
