Look what grandma Xenomorph made you for Christmas! It’s a life-size facehugger hand knitted by Etsy seller Katie aka Knitrocious. Its legs have clips on their ends so you can wrap it around your head or any part of your body for that matter.
Being single can suck, especially when all of your friends already have plus one’s. Artist Noortje de Keijzer found a way around this not by joining online dating sites or by going on blind dates, but by knitting her own boyfriend.
So the latest season of Doctor Who kicked off last week with a Dalek episode. And if you saw it, you already know that this episode breaths new life into the Daleks and takes them from being a silly overused villain to making them multi-dimensional bad guys.
Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver is pretty versatile. It can rewire an electrical control box, can open just about any door, can scan aliens and now it can also keep your neck warm when visiting cold planets.
Sure, the turrets and robots of Portal have been getting more attention out of late, but we should never count out the charm of the Companion Cube. Just take a look at this Weighted Companion Cube sweater.
Ah, Biology 101. We may be from different nations and cultures, but I’m sure those of us who have gone through that class share very similar experiences: The fear. The excitement. The jumping, twitching animals. The smell.
Unless of course the bullies in your area are gamers as well, in which case they’ll just ask that you hand this vest over to them. Or else.
For those too young to know, the vest features a screenshot from World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros.
Knitter/Yes Woman teriyakimoto‘s friend wanted a “knitted gas mask + hat to wear for winter bike trips to work”. I think it’s safe to say that this friend has quite specific needs. Teriyakimoto obliged, braving the depths of absurdity and the fact that she had no pattern to work with, and returned from her knitting basement with her awesome creation, which was already attached to her friend’s head.
Since she had no pattern, teriyakimoto had to measure her friend’s face to ensure that the mask and hat would fit snugly; they won’t save him from a biochemical attack, but they could at least keep his face warm.
The mask is attached to the hat with velcro (the black stripes on top) so he can easily remove it if he runs into bullies, or if he observes that he can’t breathe well while wearing the mask.
Below the thunders of the upper deep; far, far beneath in the abysmal sea, his ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep, The Cthulhu Penguin sleepeth:
There hath he lain for ages and lay battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep, until Ravelry member Carly Zimmerman created a pattern and shared it for all to knit and see; then once again by man and angels he shall be seen, in roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
Mario and Luigi will run from you in fear when they see your sweet knitted Goomba beanie! And it’s perfect timing as I’m quite certain you’ve been waiting for just the right accessory to show your Goomba love.
Knitter extraordinaire FadeCrazy whipped up this cozy and cranky cranium covering and shared the pattern.
