Star Trek and fingerless gloves. It doesn’t get much better than that, especially when the high today is going to be 23 degrees. These were made by Audrey Paquin and published on her Ravelry page (there’s a free pattern). Audrey created the pattern for her sister’s friend (who is also a Star Trek fan).
I love that you can tell what it’s the Enterprise, even if you just see a tiny picture. Sometimes you see knitted items that are supposed to have a picture, but you can’t really tell what it’s a picture of without being told. But this is the Enterprise, no question. I love this color for gloves, because they go with everything. And they look so warm!
If I had a guitar like this, I may actually learn to play more than 2 songs!
After a long time following links, and translating German blogs, I finally found the original source of this guitar. GetLoFi is responsible for this amazing tech, and what do you know… there is more than one and they are FOR SALE!!
Watch the video here!

As usual, True Up pointed me to an awesome new fabric line I can’t live without… this time, it’s the vintage video game prints in the Smirk collection by Kyla May. I love this Pac-Man design the most, but she also has a Space Invaders pattern in three colorways!

“I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar.” Hoban ‘Wash’ Washburn
I’m not joking, my husband and I re-watched serenity a couple of days ago, and I had to look away when Wash said this line… I won’t tell you why… if you know you’ll know, but I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone.
PURE GENIUS!! – why did you cancel Firefly Fox?… WHY!!!!!?!??!?!??!??!!
*ahem* For those of you (like me) who have a Firefly shaped hole in your lives, you can plug it with this cute tote, or perhaps a T-shirt or hoodie from geekboypress on Etsy (seriously good value too, the tote and t-shirt are only $10USD each!) oh I really want one…. maybe I can negotiate one for valentines day…
Silkcreen printing is an awesome craft and I really want to get into it myself, but I’ve never been able to find anywhere in the UK that sells the supplies… I guess I’d better use the internet to it’s full potential… any good starter kit suggestions GeekCrafters?
Craftster artist vampyreragdolls is from Portugal and makes these incredible vampyre rag dolls! They come in all shapes and sizes and you can browse through more pictures on their blog. I love the little coffin boxes that they are packed in. Do these classic type Vampires get anyone else in the Valentines Day spirit?
Nothing says a geeky “I love you” like a personal robot. Especially when that robot is a super-kawaii version of your favorite pop culture icon.
Etsy shop Lubu has dozens of adorable polymer clay robots fit for every nerd and movie buff, from Star Wars poster boy Vader to The Hangover’s Alan and baby Carlos. There’s even a team of awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
As if these weren’t cute enough on their own, Jenn and Tony Bot (the team behind Lubu) staged some classic movie scenes with their robots, including Return of the Jedi, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and — my personal favorite — The Exorcist.
As Lubu’s profile promises, your eyes will be bleeding rainbows by the time you’re done taking in all the cuteness!
