Spock Hat. Dunzo. Classes. I Haz ‘Em.

Gentle reader,

Are you peeps ready for some SRS BSNS!? (that’s excited text speak for ‘serious business’)

The Spock Hat is finished and photographed! Y’all should give your thanks to The Beard, because he’s been sick and he was on his way to work, but I pulled him outside and made him model it for me before I’d let him leave. “Enough’s enough!” I said to myself. “This needed to be done, like, months ago!”.

And so, I present you with an earflap beanie of the Spock variety. BLAM!

Also, get a load of The Beard’s beard! That’s impressive.

To do the ear detailing, I just did a surface slip stitch in a darker yarn. It turned out pretty well, I think.

“Live long and prosper.”

So Vulcan, so chic.

Well, that’s that done! Finally! I had intended to write the pattern as I made it, but at some point I realized I’d stopped making notes and it was all over. Oh well.

In some housekeeping news, I’ve added a section for my class dates! So, if you’re in la Bourne du Mel (that’s Frenchie for ‘Melbourne’) you can totally come sit with me and I’ll show you how to crochet! Fun times!

Just clicketty-clack in the handy-dandy nav bar, and you can sign yourself up for some crafty education. Hurray!

What’s the nerdiest thing you’ve ever crafted!? Bonus points for posting pics on the Facebook page! ^_~



I Need To Work On My Blogging Discipline, Yeah.

Oh, Gentle Reader!

If only you could know my shame and disappointment in myself for the roaring silence that had blighted this blog for the last few weeks… month, even! Well, episode two of Stitchonomy is out, which you can watch here, a somewhat secret project (which I can’t really blog about right now) has almost come to pass, and sickness has been conquered so I pledge to you, my beauteous – if somewhat imaginary – reader, that I will commence maintaining my blog once more. In the meantime, here is some junk that I made.

Owl Hat. Hooooooooooooot.

I made this owl hat for my Grandma, using the pattern from Bonnie Jacobs. It’s really neat, and a very quick knit – even for a slow-poke like me!

"Warm me up, Beanie!" That's a terrible, broken pun... I apologize.

Behold! The Spock Beanie! I made this for Mr. Joel, and I made it up. I had only the purest intentions of writing out the pattern, but clearly, it never happened. It may get some final tweaks, and I plan to make The Joel model it for me, so updates are likely.

Fenimore by the most exalted Jared Flood

This is what I’m working on at the moment, the Fenimore by Jared Flood. After the Owl Hat, I think I’ve developed an obsession with cabled hats. Not a bad obsession to have, in the grand scheme of things. It’s come along a lot further since I took the picture, but I’ll save that for another time.

Well, that’s all from me for now, but I do promise I’ll be back soon! In the meantime, you can watch me flap my jaw on Stitchonomy if you love hearing someone say “ummm” between almost every second word, or leave me comments. I love them, the commentses!
