Pattern: Madman with a Box

“Amy Pond, there’s something you better understand about me, ’cause it’s important and one day your life may depend on it… I am definitely a madman with a box!”

Over at Cheeky Monkey Designs this madman with a box can keep you extra warm. Reversible with worsted weight  yarn, this cowl would be a great addition to your wardrobe as you drift towards a cold star

Winter is fast approaching (be proud I didn’t say it). So why not get ready?

I Need This in My Living Room

tardis

Crazyfoalrus of Australia is a Whovian we should all aspire to be…he turned his living room into the TARDIS control room!

Crazyfoalrus did all the lighting and electrical himself, built the whole console and painted the floor. His living room was already hexagonal shaped room, he owned all the timber, and he worked at a factory with a lot of spare parts to be dumped which were used for the controls. It took him a year to finish.

Check out his Deviant Art gallery for more images from his redesigned living room.

Pattern: Bat’leth Scarf

If you looked at that title and shook your head, you need more crafty Klingon’s in your life.  Over at The Giving Flower a design for a Bat’leth scarf is up for any enterprising knitter.

As the designer describes:  “Feeling a bit agressive? Need to let your inner Klingon free? Then this is just the scarf for you. It can be used in battle or just worn around your neck to keep you or your favorite Klingon warrior warm. With the silk and merino content and the holes formed by the grips, it flows gently around any Klingon or non-Klingon neck and won‘t get too warm. It also can come in handy in case a Klingon battle ensues. Don‘t be caught empty handed this winter!”

If that’s not a call to winter  battle. We all know the colder season is approaching for some of us. And its time for it to taste defeat.

Not All Geek Crafts Have To Be Permanent

Sometimes, some of the most stunning of crafts can be edible and insanely easy. This is one of them.

The poster of this craft wrote that his/her friend created this portrait of Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard out of ketchup, mustard, hoisin sauce, and bleu cheese. There’s no other information available about it, but it’s popped up all over the Internet. Personally, the only thing I can think to say about it is, “Mr. Data, let’s stop for a snack. Warp Factor Trisket!”

Star Wars Craft: Death Star Cushion

crochet Star Wars Death Star cushion by Pops de Milk

When I added this Death Star Cushion to my Geek Pinterest board and it got 50 repins, I knew I had a winner. Nothing like a little pre-testing before sharing something with you here on GeekCrafts!

Pops de Milk has done all the mental gymnastics for you and figured out how to make a perfectly spherical (and evil) Death Star in crochet form – no small feat! The result is a nice size pillow accent that would be perfect for a den or dorm room.

But if a 96-stitch/28″ circumference seems too much for your needs, she also made an adorable Cutest Little Death Star that is sure to capture your heart (and hook)!
