On Saturday at my El Segundo Slipt Stitchers Guild meeting, I was enlisted as substitute photographer to document the "Show & Share" portion of our meeting. This is when Guild members get up and show off their latest knit and/or crochet project to the group. They usually talk about the project detailing the name of the pattern, the type of yarn they used, etc. I take a photo of each member and their creation for our website.
|Angela's Starfleet Insignia Shawl Pin|
Sometimes the Show & Share item is not yarny at all. My friend Angela (an excellent designer) showed a very clever shawl pin she had purchased made out of copper into the "Star Trek" starfleet insignia. Even though the original "Star Trek" TV series (1966-69) only ran for three seasons, it is constantly in reruns around the world. When I channel surf and see an episode running, I always stop and watch it even though I may have seen all episodes dozens of times.
Seeing Angela's shawl pin made me want to create outer space items! Here are a few that I found on Ravelry!

The Flying Saucer, above is my personal favorite, especially in fuzzy yarn! Those flying saucers ALWAYS look fuzzy when you see them up in the sky. Right?
