enemyairship just posted for the first time on Craftster and she’s starting off good! She crocheted this 8-bit Mario Raccoon (my favorite Mario!) rug as a birthday present for her boyfriend. And it’s huge – 7 feet! Click through for some in progress photos as well as how she went about making this with granny squares.

So if you live anywhere near me, it isn’t scarf weather anymore. Not even close. But I’m sure somewhere in the midwest it’s still snowing, and I hear that Siberia is quite cold this time of year. Anyway, this blog isn’t always about functionality, is it? No. No it’s not, so when I saw this six foot long Guitar Hero Scarf featuring the actual riff from “Killer Queen“, I threw caution (and the weather) to the wind and decided to post it. Domestic Scientist posted this in two parts, a progress entry and the finished product. This is a rockin’ accessory.
I just came across this amazing crocheter (is that a word?) – Maggie Wang aka causticmuse – on Craftster. She has made a whole bunch of cool, very geeky amigurumi dolls based on Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet. I couldn’t pick a favorite as they’re all great, so here are five:

I am always in awe of anyone who can cross-stitch a huge, detailed design and this Conker the Squirrel by Geek Craft reader Mrs. Evil Tedi is no exception. She used cross-stitch design software to make the pattern from the Xbox game Conker Live and Reloaded. I can’t even image how long this must have taken to complete.
Big thanks to everyone who submitted a geek craft! Through the very scientific process of my husband and I picking the entries we liked best, here are the winners:
ICandee made this scene from Mario Brothers in polymer clay.
Tae submitted this absolutely amazing Millennium Falcon cake on Ace of Cakes. How could anyone stand to cut this one up?
