So apparently there's a game called Minecraft, and this is some kind of a thing from  that game. Originally Nat wanted to be a Creeper, but I'm glad she went with the Enderman. For starters, the Creeper has four legs. Though wearing a box on your head creates all kinds of difficulties, I hit on the idea of putting the box on the top of her head by sawing up an old bicycle helmet and hot-gluing it inside. Despite the full body suit, she could actually see quite well, even at night. The fluorescent paper had plenty of shine for the daytime, and we glued in some pink glowsticks for evening wear. Since it was about 10° last night she could even get away without wearing a coat. How many costumes of my childhood were ruined by having to put a parka on top? So many.

Most people had no idea what she was supposed to be, but they loved it anyway. And she didn't get hit by a car, which was nice.

  As soon as my wraps were in the mail, I started warping my alpaca shawl. If weaving baby wraps has taught me anything, it's to cherish a project that is less than 800 threads. This one has only 200, and it's been so freeing. I warped and beamed it yesterday, and have woven several feet of it today. So soft and fuzzy. I can't wait to wear it, and judging by the way things have been going, that might be tomorrow.
