What’s better than a sonic screwdriver? A hand knit sonic screwdriver!
Designed by Kristen Danley of Ravelry this sonic screwdriver pattern is based off of the Eleventh Doctor’s screwdriver.
The pattern is easy to follow and is a great way to use up some leftover yarn.

If the San Diego Comic-Con is the arena rock star of the convention world, then San Francisco’s WonderCon is the concert-hall favorite. It’s not nearly as big, but much more manageable, and (in my humble opinion) just as much fun.
I attended two days of this year’s Con, where I met numerous writers, artists, and geek icons. My favorite folks to talk to, though, were the hard-working crafters tabling throughout the Con.
Some had made items to promote books and webcomics, others were devoted to selling thier handmade crafts. No matter the reason, though, they were always happy to stop and share a little about their creations.
I love quilting, but I tend to stick to more traditional patterns. But maybe it’s time to change that! Funthreads made this Spock quilt for the Spring 2011 online Blogger’s Quilt Festival?. It was intentionally made so the image is difficult to see up close. But step back and there’s Mr. Spock! Funthreads said she usually gives away or donates her quilts, but this one she made with her husband in mind. Nothing says “I love you” quite like Star Trek. She started with a pumpkin carving template, and designed the whole thing from there. It’s 58 x 82 inches, so I can only imagine how long this took. But it was obviously worth all the effort. She details the whole process on her blog and it’s…fascinating (Sorry! I couldn’t help myself!) Good luck with the festival!
Have you discovered the web treasury/bookmarking site called Pinterest? It’s a “place to catalog the things you love.” And since I do love me some Star Trek, I was so very pleased to find this Star Trek “Pinboard” by Edie Rowner. At this time, she has 42 “pins” in this category, all related to Star Trek DIY-awesomeness.
She pinned the fabulous felt pillow pictured at left, some intricate Star Trek insignia socks, some geek soap, a Kirk amigurumi, and a pair of Star Trek earrings.
