Crochet Skull Scarf

Skull ScarfSpring may have sprung, but that doesn’t mean we’re in the clear yet. Especially where I live in Northern California, sunny days can quickly give way to blustery evenings.

However, if you have a scarf as bad-ass as this crochet skull scarf, you won’t mind the cooler weather.

Handmade by Kara York, this Peruvian wool scarf is sure to keep your old bones warm! For folks who like their macabre with a dash of color, Kara’s Etsy shop — Wicked Crochet — also has this scarf in festive colors or with floral accents.

If you’ve already packed away your winter wear, never fear. Kara also offers some lovely skull headbands that would look great with a nice (gothic) sundress.

Dr Who Cross Stitch

I like the bit when someone says it’s bigger on the inside! I always look forward to that.

This is the creation of Crafty TARDIS/livejournal member Xcarex. I love it.

If you’re not plugged into Crafty TARDIS you should be! I love the charming honesty of this cross stitch, the way the TARDIS seems to be shining with all those dotted lines, and the care and attention taken over the different shades of blue.

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey WimeyThis Doctor Who inspired cowl was designed by Ravelry user Rachel Henry.  It’s made with a Knit Picks self striping yarn, in the Time Traveler colorway, which is unfortunately no longer available on the Knit Picks site.  The colors are a pastel version of the iconic Doctor Who scarf worn by the fourth Doctor.

The cowl pictured here is one I knit for myself.  I ordered the yarn right after seeing the pattern, and knit it for myself as a treat when I finished all my Christmas knitting.
