In anticipation of American McGee’s Alice: Madness Returns, here are some awesome Alice in Wonderland items! As usual, be sure to click on the picture to be taken to the actual treasury!
Designed by Marsha Auguste and available on Ravelry, this scarf represents some of the leading members of DC’s Justice League.
Each symbol is knit separately using double stitch, however since Auguste supplies a chart for each square it’s a simple switch to Intarsia or Fair Isle. If using Fair Isle you’d have the advantage of making each symbol in the round, effectively making the scarf double sided.
This scarf has so many possibilities. You could even use Auguste’s charts to make a Justice League blanket!
The pattern is available for free on Ravlery as well as on Auguste’s blog, One Geek to Stitch Them All.
With the pools now open (here in the U.S.), you can’t walk into a discount or grocery store without seeing a display of styrofoam pool noodles. And if you’re going to be whacking friends with them, you might as well make sure they are properly accessorized with duct tape.
So now you can slap some duct tape on your noodle and the Force can be strong with you, too.
Today’s the day we pick our geek’s name! Pixel was in the lead yesterday, but will that be the winner? Vote today and stay tuned tomorrow when we announce the winner!
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.
Coffee is a really special thing. By special, I mean an absolutely necessary, absolutely delicious morning ritual that could never be done with out. Something so special, necessary, and delicious should also have the opportunity to look really cool on a regular basis, so when Tara from SewTara linked me to her Etsy shop full of Geeky Coffee Cozies, I immediately logged in to show them to you. Well, immediately after I finished my cup of coffee. That’s okay, though, Tara understands coffee induced procrastination.
someone who is always putting things off “until I’ve finished my coffee”, I couldn’t resist showing this one as well. You can also flip it around so the “Do stuff” box is checked, but I figure, why lie?
Never one to marginalize, and always one to appreciate some cool binary stuff, I couldn’t leave the tea drinkers out of this (I am, after all, British by marriage). So, don’t fret it coffee isn’t your thing. I admit, I will never understand how someone couldn’t love a nectar so sweet, but, at least Tara is looking out for the geeky tea drinkers with this awesome Binary Tea Cozy. That says, quite simply, “Tea”.
