Knit Some Chewie Mittens

Chewie_Terese_Sharp

So there is a movie franchise that is getting more movies . Something about a long time ago in a galaxy far away. Or so I’ve heard.  Raverly Designer Therese Sharp has designed a pair of Chewie Mittens.  With SDCC happening right now and more cons approaching, what better then knitting some geek love? The pattern is available on Raverly.

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?

The Winter Soldier Fingerless Mitts

So today in the states at least a lovely movie came out. Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Go see it, its fun and a great conspiracy meets Superhero type movie. I even wrote a review here, there is a break before the spoilers if you want to take a read.  So in that fashion I wanted a Winter Soldier Geek Craft for today. I mean he shares the name of the movie with Cap, and  I’ve already posted a Captain America Sweater.

So this time it’s the Winter Soldier.  This free pattern by Maratini on Ravelry are a perfect way to get a fun fiber made metal arm. Much better than being captured and experimented on by evil organizations I would say.  And that whole losing an arm bit. That doesn’t seem like any fun.

Wraped Up In A Tentacle or Eight

It’s been quite cold these past few months. Who wouldn’t want something warm to wrap themselves up in? Designer Kraftling has got you covered with their Double Knit Kraken Cowl.

Who wouldn’t want that wrapped around them during the next Polar Vortex, Blizzard, -30 wind chill day?  For those that don’t know double knitting is a simple process by which you create a two sided fabric, reversible fabric as you knit. An easy process that gives you a double thick fabric in the colors of your choice.

Knit a Pair of Johnlock Mittens

Series 3 of BBC’s Sherlock has just wrapped and these mittens are  a great project to work on during your next re watch.  You know you want to. This pattern actually came out in December so a good wintery pattern.  You have Sherlock and John on the back of you hands deducing their way through the wintery weather.

Pick two colors, possibly one for Sherlock and one for John and get crafting.
