Strength, Power, and Courage!

Strength, Power, and Courage!

Designed by Marsha Auguste and available on Ravelry, this scarf represents some of the leading members of DC’s Justice League.

Each symbol is knit separately using double stitch, however since Auguste supplies a chart for each square it’s a simple switch to Intarsia or Fair Isle.  If using Fair Isle you’d have the advantage of making each symbol in the round, effectively making the scarf double sided.

This scarf has so many possibilities.  You could even use Auguste’s charts to make a Justice League blanket!

The pattern is available for free on Ravlery as well as on Auguste’s blog, One Geek to Stitch Them All.

Use your noodle & make your own lightsaber

With the pools now open (here in the U.S.), you can’t walk into a discount or grocery store without seeing a display of styrofoam pool noodles. And if you’re going to be whacking friends with them, you might as well make sure they are properly accessorized with duct tape.

Make your own lightsaber with pool noodlesWhich brings us to a fabulous step-by-step tutorial from the Jedi Broad Squad for how to make your own light-saber.

So now you can slap some duct tape on your noodle and the Force can be strong with you, too.
