Red Pen, a crocheter on Crafster, posts the results of his project to crochet a handsome biker jacket out of black wool. The result is "bulky" and needs snaps and a belt (and epaulets!) to finish it, but this is a pretty rad extreme crochet project. Link (via Craft)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
