Winter is over and Spring is here with Summer shortly behind. That means that most of us no longer need warm fleece blankets. But even in the 105-degree Texas weather, we still need blankets for one thing – picnics.
Grandmothers like to do things like playing Bingo, quilting and crocheting. Sometimes they are even hip enough to know who Mario is even if some of them think he’s a real plumber. Sometimes they even make an awesome Mario quilt and give it to you for Christmas.
Raising a kid is a huge responsibility (and from what I’ve seen my sister go through so far, it’s also the cause of many pains and frustrations.) But the fun thing about babies is that you can dress them up in whatever clothes you want, and they don’t have any say because, well, they don’t really care.
As the Starks used to say “Winter is Coming!” so you’d better start thinking about how you’re going to keep warm when Fall is over. You could freeze your bippy off, or you could cover it up with a ghost from Pac-Man.
If you liked Benjamin Berg’s glitch art throw pillows, check out Phillip Stearn’s Glitch Textiles. With the help of professional knitters and weavers, Stearns turns patterns generated from broken digital cameras and binary files into blankets and tapestries.
No matter what kind of geek you are or what you are into, you will find something to love on this awesome knitted blanket. Ravelry member Leilaniac designed it in Excel and then knitted it with Shibui Knits sock yarn.
When you don’t have a TARDIS with which to travel through time and space, the next best thing might be a TARDIS shaped blanket.

Looking for a way to keep cosy as the temperature starts to drop? Well snuggle up in front of your gaming system and bust out some classic games with one of these awesome video game inspired blankets or throws to keep you toasty.
Life can get pretty overwhelming sometimes. If you’ve pulled all-nighters before or have tried working overtime for several nights in a row, then you know there’s nothing quite like that feeling you get when you finally get to dive under your sheets and sleep.
Now that it’s 84 degrees and 99% humidity outside here in Chicago, it’s perfect timing for this bit of Pac-Man merch to hit stores, right? Well, maybe the guys who make this Pac-Man fleece blanket are a little off with their calendars, but if you happen to live in the Southern Hemisphere, you could be needing a warm-up soon, right?
Apparently in the United States, the relationship of many married couples is being threatened by fart, so much so that a “science teacher” created a fart-absorbing blanket and named it “The Better Marriage Blanket.” And here I was thinking that snoring (or having 8 kids and going on a reality show) was the main reason why marriages dissolve, not flatulence.
So let’s say you have twenty or so awesome moments in your Halo 3 career preserved in screenshots. Yeah, the time you stuck that guy right in the face? Remember when you snatched up that flag right in the middle of heavy fire from the red team?
I don’t know about you, but when I’m waking up from a nightmare, I want to be able to clutch my blanket in comfort, not in added terror. Apparently, though, not everyone is like this, or this Silent Hill-themed blanket would not exist.
