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.
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.
February is nearly over but I’m still cold. So I have been looking at all warm weather things, and pondering making thrummed everything. And looking at stranded items. These mittens came up and until the end of today they are on sale for 40% off the pattern.
I will be trying my hand at colorwork once again to do these mitts. I think I may make them in red and gold for Merlin or Red and black for House Targaryen. Hmm, red and black are my favorite colors. Fire and Blood it is.
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.
So when this pattern by user hellohappylisa over on Tumblr caught my eye it was clear I would have to share it with you all. Who wouldn’t want to crochet this happy pattern? She has made it available in her Etsy shop. And I should warn you before you head over there you may need to gird yourself against the cute. There is a lot of it in the shop.
These knitting charts are a great way to place some Minecraft love on anything. Ravelry user Jenna La Due has shared a free set of charts to do with what you will.
She used the charts to make a sweater, but you can see on the project page, that there have been socks and a hat made using these charts.
