Geeky Tuesday #10 Film Geek Scarf

So autumn is well and truly in, lets wrap up and hit the library.

This week I’m loving this film reel inspired scarf by¬†AZURE KNITS+, I’m finding it simple but stiking.

The pattern itself has good reviews, the photos show off the scarf perfectly.

Me? I’m bundled in as many scarves as possible because it does not matter how warm or cold it is outside, in the library its hella cold once you sit on your backside reading books for hours… I complain, but I love it really. ūüėČ


I’m off to Study!

Geeky Tuesday #9 THE BRAIN!

Brrraaaaaaiiiinnnsss

This post is for all the Zombies out there. This hat, for those of you with a taste for brains, is delicious!

I saw this and went YESBLOGITNOW I was so excited. I think one of the things I love most about yarn crafts is the range of things that you can make. This isn’t just your average scarf or hat you might expect your granny to give you at Christmas, this is properly clever design that makes you laugh and wonder how hard it is to put together.

This hat by¬†Lani Rae’s Ravelry Patterns¬†is a fairly hard difficulty so perhaps isn’t for the faint hearted of you, but I bet everyone could imagine a ¬†situation this hat would be perfect for. ¬† (I’d want to wear it to an exam, and when people mentioned it after staring in silence for hours I’d say ‘I just thought I needed the extra brain power’) =D

Geeky Tuesday #8 Black Milk Clothing Co.

Hello!

I normally post on Tuesdays about patterns I’ve found on Ravelry, but this week I’ve noticed a lot of this company popping up on my facebook feed and couldn’t help but tell you about them!

Black Milk Clothing have been popping up all over facebook and Pinterest with p. awesome dresses, leggings and swimsuits that I am more than a little bit jealous of.

Galaxy Maxi Dress-http://blackmilkclothing.com/collections/dresses/products/galaxy-blue-maxi-dress

The brand certainly has plainer pieces to compliment the garish geeky patterns I am so in love with. However, there is a downside to the brand, it’s really not for the faint hearted. The levels of spandex and lycra are high so it’s probably not for you if you don’t like your clothing too tight. Other than that the prices are fairly reasonable compared to similar products and I am totally saving up for a new dress for¬† a nigh a the discoteque.

Geeky Tuesday #7 Care of Magical Creatures Charm Bracelet

by TinyOwlKnits

This week I’m gearing up for University term going back! I can’t wait! Books, lectures, reading lists, classes about magical creatures… Ok maybe that last one isn’t true but I think this bracelet was too cute not to have a link in sentence.

This lovely Pattern by¬†Tiny Owl Knits¬†is an intricate piece of craft, incorporating knitting and jewelry craft and more importantly, caring. This project isn’t just a lovely pattern, this is a whole zen ‘life changing’ project created to guide you into doing nice things for others.

The concept is lovely, you earn your charms by doing nice things for others, the environment, animals and the ones you love. Only once completing a task can you knit your charm and add it to your bracelet.

It makes the charm bracelet mean more to you, making lovely memories and being really special.

ThreadCetera will be making one! The lovely Cia Jackson over at Red Head Knits will be my knitting companion on this journey through stitches I have never tried and we will be blogging our progress in pictures! I, for one, am the most excited crafter! See what Cia has to say about it here.

Geeky Tuesday #3 SackBoy

Little Big Planet is one of the happiest games I’ve played and sackboy is up there as being the cutest.

I love seeing Sackboy all dressed up as Iron Man or a wizard or ghost. It’s adorable.

Amigurumi designer Emjay Bailey has got to be one of the most talented of people. Her website Nerdgurumi (click for link) hosts a plethora of cute, strange, geeky, awesome designs that are constantly being pinned onto Pintrest by yours truly =3

I’ve tried a few of her things before and they always turn out awesome.

This pattern is available for free as a Ravelry download.

Happy hooking!

Geeky Tuesday #2 Strongbad

Hello again another Tuesday!

This weeks geek out is close to my heart. Strongbad is one of my favorite cartoon characters, I had spent countless hours watching episodes and then worryingly trying to talk like him.

The designer Aleta Fera has done really well to get the sizing right for all the different parts and I love the face.

This is a fan pattern made free and can be found here.

I will definitely be giving this one a go!

Geeky Tuesday #1- The Claptrap

I love Crochet. I love it to bits. Since finding it it has come in useful, been calming, and been an endless source of fun.

Ravelry is a fantastic website for patterns, finished products and sharing the wooly love. I’m a big fan. I’ve been digging through the yarn to find some of my favorite patterns on here.

I present my Geeky Tuesday collection; the best of ravelry geekiness blogged Tuesdays.

This week I’m in love with Claptrap from Borderlands, I played this recently and it’s really funny, high octane fun. I love the animation style.
