Knitting Scout Badges

Holy cat, I haven't blogged in almost a month! Well, I've had better things to do, LOL--mostly Ravelry. Not to mention my computer was down for ages.

Did you notice my Knitting Scout badges, right under my profile? Want some of your own? Here's the link!

I'm going to insert a couple of the badges I haven't earned yet in this post and talk a little about them.

(Whoa, that's large.) To the left, you see the MacGyver Level III badge, which requires the recipient to "demonstrate clever use of a knitting tool in a non-knitting-related scenario working towards the Greater Good." Still working on that.

This next one is the "I've Knit Items With No Conceivable Practical Application". As you can see, it features a three-legged pair of tights; another example, mentioned on Ravelry, is felted jellyfish. I probably shouldn't be working toward this one, but... well, let's just say I like a challenge. As demonstrated by my first two MacGyver badges, I can come up with a use--not necessarily a practical use--for almost anything. So knitting something useless in my own estimation could get pretty stiff.
