Craftpocalypse 2012

The awarding of points is going strong in our cozy, crazy, crafting during the count down to the end of the year, neigh world, ;) in our Craftpocalypse 2012 thread here in the Den.

Marushka has been tallying the points. Bonus points are available from one and all, so Marushka really has her hands full with this one, folks. The lead changes every time a new project enters the fray because for once the points don't matter and neither do the rules. Points range from a modest 2 for a pair of sleeves on a sweater to 88,888,888,888,888,888,888,881 for serenading Sir Sorting Hat!

There's six categories projects can fit in. Bits, Wips, Ends, Nick, Lonely, and Anything. Wips is any project you want to share just b/c you want to share it. Bits are projects like one hexipuffs, a small blanket square, something too small for the House Cup. Ends are projects that are the end of a large wip you are happy to finally be done with. Lonely is the single glove or sock you finished. Nick is anything that comes together just in the nick of time. And, the anything category is for all the non Ravelry crafts, lots of food has been turned in here, but also quilts and sewing.

Lots of fun submissions and lots of fun banter in the thread. A fun place to stop by if you need some lighthearted cheering up. :-)
