Knit Some Chewie Mittens

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.

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.

Here Be Dragon…Mitts

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.

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.
