I’ve been obsessed lately with this knitting project. Now that I’m half way through, I had to take some proper photos of it.
It’s really the most beautiful thing I’ve knit in a long while!
The name of the pattern is Courant, and it was designed by Barbara Benson. Here’s a link to the pattern on Ravelry.
I haven’t had time lately to knit much fandom related and here’s my excuse.
I just sometimes want to cry as I follow the pattern and see what a gorgeous shawl is forming.
I’ve been knitting everything else lately, but since my friend had a baby a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t let him go forth to the world without a TARDIS shirt.
The pattern Jeudi has a cable on one side that already reminded me of the time vortex. I embroidered the windows and doorplates on a piece of blue felt, cut it into tardishape and sewed it on.
My cat really enjoyed sleeping on the damp piece of wool while I was blocking it, therefore it has some stretched yarns here and there and the added benefit of soft cat hair between the stitches.
Happy birthday to me! Of the four people who have remembered me thus far, one was Google (not a person but…).
A friend of mine made me this awesome Hello Schröddy book bag, thank you Suvi <3 <3 !!
I finished knitting this lovely cardigan in Icelandic wool, so that is my present for myself. Not exactly a fandom knit, but it will keep me warm when I go to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier in a few hours.

it has similarities to captain america’s shield, maybe make one of those next? :)
Ooh, exellent idea :D
I really truly enjoyed making this Spiderman-blanket for a friends’ baby. I actually cast on as soon as I heard she was pregnant.
Now I have to come up with new embarassing fandom knits for the baby. Any ideas?

I do not crochet. But once in a while there is an exeption to that rule.
I marathoned Parks and Rec a couple of weeks ago and the afghan on Ann Perkins’ couch looked really nice.
So I found a pattern on Ravelry and adapted it a little using yarn (HjerteGarn’s Lima) I already had that had proved wrong for another project. And here’s the result.
So, I’ve been knitting stuff for other people since November and now got back to this project that I’ve been charting last year.
SO excited! I’ve no idea what it’s going to be in the end but very Austen-y or bookwormy.
I have been so unbelievably bored most of January and the beginning of February. I’ve been on a sick leave since 15th January, but luckily well able to knit.
These mittens and hat were a present for a friend and now I’ve finally given them, so I can update about it here as well :)
The pattern for the The Wallpaper Had it Coming (Again) -mittens can be found here. The hat I improvised with the same pattern.
As soon as I saw this lace tam on Mary Margaret in Once Upon a Time, I wanted to make it. So glad that Mary Craver has put the pattern on Ravelry, otherwise I would have had to chart it myself..
The yarn I used is HjerteGarn’s Alpaca Silk and the silk gives a nice shine.
I made a nerd quilt. AND I FINALLY FINISHED IT!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
What a fantastic idea! And so wellexecuted.
Who wants me to charts up some nerdy icons in quilt-square sizes?
I think that’s a great idea.
This is absolutely fantastic! I’ve been planning something similar as well, but I’m still charting it…
In celebration of the Desolation of Smaug premiere (which I totally forgot about since the film comes out here in a few weeks, and then remembered when my dash overflowed with it) I finished today my Dwarvenhood project (I started to call it that at some point, even though it’s a balaclava).
Only thing is that I don’t recommend the yarn I used (Cocoon by Rowan), since it has 20% Mohair and I’m still digging the hairs out of my eyeballs.
On the bottom picture there is a yellow arrow pointing at a picture on the bookshelf where I’m wielding a claymore. That would have been a good prop for this photo. Or an axe. (Also, in front of the picture there’s a small statue of Ganesha.)
Now I just have to hope the weather turns colder before the premiere here. Otherwise I will boil in the elven cloak. Last year it was -13C, it’s +6C at the moment.
Here’s the link to the pattern on Ravelry by Sally Pointer/Wicked Woollens.
It’ been a while, and I have been knitting, a lot, but nothing fandom related, until this hat. It’s the first Yule present I’ve finished this year!
I think I started reading and loving H.P.Lovecraft at the same time as my brother, so this mass of tentacles was a good idea for a Yule project for him.
The wonderful Lovecraft’s Bane -pattern can be found and downloaded for free on Ravelry.
