Star Trek Pop Art Limited Edition Art Prints

I don’t know what it is about these two prints, but something about them just speaks to me. I need them both for my living room.

C is for Cameo

Thanks to EPBOT I have found the greatest set of geeky cameos. If the title of the post didn’t make it clear I’m sure the  Cookie Monster Cameo helps clear it up.  Geek Goddess Creations  has tons on hand crafted cameos following all sorts of crafty themes.

Geek Knitting: Geek-a-Long Blanket

Geek-a-long Blanket squares by Megan-Anne Llama

Greetings geekcrafters! Today I wanted to share with you an ongoing geek project  – Latte and Llama’s Geek-a-Long blanket.

They are releasing one geek-themed square knitting pattern each week, including references to Sherlock, Battlestar Galactica, Harry Potter, the DC universe, and Avatar. They have also posted a FAQ for the project. The patterns are free, but they are encouraging donations to Child’s Play.

Like any good “a-long” project, it’s fun to interact with others who are working on the same project. It looks like this one has some good participation on Ravelry, with 500+ members in the group.

What fandoms or images would you include in a geeky afghan?

Just in Time For Whatever Holiday You Celebrate!

You know what would really bring this room together? A Spock candle! And as luck would have it, Hollywood Soul on Etsy has just such a candle!

candles

This white wax candle stands 8″ tall, will burn for around 7 days, and features Spock, as portrayed by Leonard Nimoy. However, if your home or altar or whatever needs decorating, and Spock isn’t quite what you’re needing, Hollywood Soul has candles that feature The Dude, Miley Cyrus, Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi and loads of other celebrities in Photoshopped religious settings.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon amigurumi

La Chapa, a self described, “hardcore yarnie” from California made an incredible Creature from the Black Lagoon amigurumi.

She made him made this for the lovely kittykill in the Vintage Halloween Swap last year on Craftster. Check out her series of photos of him…he’s even got scales down his back and tiny little claws! Unfortunately, he’s going to be a OOAK toy, because La Chapa said she didn’t write down any notes when she was making him, so he can’t be recreated again in all his scaly, yarny glory.
