I am so excited. My partner for the 3rd Australian knitters swap is a genuine Trekkie. In her "information about myself blurb" she talks about knitting her way through 5 years worth of Farscape over an eight week period (while waiting for her son to be born). And that she thinks Captain James T Kirk is a hot spunk.
I have twice now knitted my way through 5 years worth of Babylon Five watched over a very short period. I think I've been granted a kindred spirit.
So I've been downloading Star Trek graphics and am considering how to turn them into knitting charts. I know this is one partner I can make the perfect knitted gift for without spending a lot of dosh.
I really enjoyed the first Aussie Knit swap; with the second I think neither myself not my recipient was overly-enthused with what we received (I still have to rid my house of the novelty yarn sent with the crocheted bag) and I was umm-ing and ah-ing about whether to join swap number three.
I'm glad I did. If I can work out a decent pattern of a communicator or the Star Fleet insignia, I will put it up for other fans to play with.
And we will all be very very happy.
