There are knitters in my living room…

My roommates are both knitters. And I don’t mean, “Ever now and then they knit a scarf and maybe some mittens” knitters. I mean knitters, which means mittens and gloves and sweater vests and baby clothes all the time.

I’m not a knitter, but I am an admirer. A fangirl, if you will, of crafts involving needles and yarn. Here are some favorites:

Crochet Cthuhlu

Isn’t it adorable? Even Lovecraft wouldn’t be able to resist a snuggle. The curly tentacles, the wee little wings… and best of all, the pattern is free!

Emission Spectrum Scarves

Get your nerd on – literally! These scarves are a fantastic idea, and patterns for Mercury, Bromine, Iron and Plutonium are available!

Stuffed Fish

Guaranteed to make people squeal with delight, my roommate Kimberly made this delightful friend for her sister’s newborn. Isn’t it cute? (you’ll have to register as a member to view the pattern)

Fingerless Mario Gloves

Keri made me these for Christmas, and I love them so much! I almost want to get in a fist fight, just so I can punch someone with a mushroom.

Delicate, like a snowflake! Happy Pi Day, everyone!

    The fish looks like one of my favourite plushies that I carried around EVERYWHERE when I was little (though still too old to carry things like that around).
