Pattern: Bat’leth Scarf

If you looked at that title and shook your head, you need more crafty Klingon’s in your life.  Over at The Giving Flower a design for a Bat’leth scarf is up for any enterprising knitter.

As the designer describes:  “Feeling a bit agressive? Need to let your inner Klingon free? Then this is just the scarf for you. It can be used in battle or just worn around your neck to keep you or your favorite Klingon warrior warm. With the silk and merino content and the holes formed by the grips, it flows gently around any Klingon or non-Klingon neck and won‘t get too warm. It also can come in handy in case a Klingon battle ensues. Don‘t be caught empty handed this winter!”

If that’s not a call to winter  battle. We all know the colder season is approaching for some of us. And its time for it to taste defeat.

Not All Geek Crafts Have To Be Permanent

Sometimes, some of the most stunning of crafts can be edible and insanely easy. This is one of them.

The poster of this craft wrote that his/her friend created this portrait of Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard out of ketchup, mustard, hoisin sauce, and bleu cheese. There’s no other information available about it, but it’s popped up all over the Internet. Personally, the only thing I can think to say about it is, “Mr. Data, let’s stop for a snack. Warp Factor Trisket!”

Star Trek Dresser

Demostheness posted a photo of a custom paint job, Star Trek-style, a friend of her’s did on a dresser.

The font is from “The Next Generation” series, but the colors and the insignia are from the original series. It’s a seamless joining of the generations! I mean, now her friend has a place to keep all of her uniforms, but hopefully, she keeps the red shirts somewhere else!

Star Trek Craft: ComBadge Earrings

Star Trek ComBadge earrings by Tally Heilke

Stay in touch with your away team with these fantastic Star Trek ComBadge Earrings. Tally Heilke provides a full tutorial on her blog. Not exactly a typical Father’s Day sort of craft, but suitable for me, since my dad was the one who initiated me into the world of Star Trek.

As a scrapbooker with a basement full of paper stash, I was intrigued to see the earrings are made out of cardstock! Plus it’s an excuse to break out some power tools! <insert Tim Allen-esque grunting>

Are you planning any Star Trek cosplay for upcoming cons? These would be the perfect accessory!

Star Trek Craft: Bajoran Earring

Being a fan of all things Star Trek, I was pleased to find this write-up on designing a Bajoran earring by Patrick Hassel-Zein.

If you’re familiar with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, you would have seen Major Kira almost always sporting a Bajoran earring on her right ear. Ensign Ro Laren also wore one on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

On his webpage, Patrick provides a little historic look into the Bajoran earring, and then offers some suggestions for designing your own.

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.
