Nyan Cat Crochet Scarf

Nyan Cat Crochet ScarfFor the uninitiated, Nyan Cat is is an 8-bit animation depicting a cat with the body of a cherry pop tart flying through outer space.  I have always been fascinated by internet memes, and have seen many flying cats and at least a few pastry cats, but the cuteness and absurdity of Nyan Cat is certainly the pinnacle of “flying pastry cats” on the internet.

Etsian BlackPie has brought Nyan Cat off the screen and into your home with this delightful Nyan Cat crochet scarf.  Not only will you look cute and cozy in this wonderful tribute to Nyan Cat, but when life gets too stressful you can just close your eyes and imagine flying through space.

What are you waiting for?  Get the scarf!

Link Felt Collage

So I’ve had video games on the brain lately. As such, I knew I wanted to find a super unique video game craft to share with you.

Thanks to the talented Etsian pixl pshr I found it. I have NEVER seen anything like this. They take ordinary felt and turn it into totally awesome art! Each square is hand cut and assembled by them. Crazy fun!

Buy this collage!

Jayne’s grenade

I am always pleased to find references to the tragically-short-lived, but epically-awesome TV series “Firefly“. I am of the opinion that any day with a little Firefly injected in it is a good day. Just the other night I had cause to exclaim, “Sure would be nice to have some grenades, dontcha think?”

Jayne Cobb's propsAnd lo, what does teh Internets yield up to me? One of Jayne’s grenades! (shown at the far left in this picture)

With all the fanfare for Jayne Cobb’s hat, I was very impressed to see someone step outside the knitting box and go straight for the ammo! Kudos to Brian at StormtrooperGuy.
