Ria knits and crochets. She is a very active member of a Ravelry forum called Nerd Wars—where they issue all kinds of crafty challenges and she really enjoys that. One of challenges (and the creative way she spins them to make it work for her) resulted in this dragon which she gave to Tommo and I, since we are truly dragon people. He is just adorable, and Tom named him Carl —Ria gets it even if the rest of the world will wonder why!!!
