Holiday Sale and GIVEAWAY
Hi tumblr! I have two exciting announcements for you.
1) I have a new pattern out, and I will be giving the finished product to one lucky reblogger. It’s a Robin Hood/Peter Pan hat that fits pretty much any adult human head. You can buy the pattern on my Etsy or Ravelry shops, and you can reblog this post up to three times for a chance to win a finished hat.
2) To celebrate Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays, all of my patterns are temporarily selling for just $5. My shops are full of dinosaurs and superheroes! Sale runs through 11:59pm on December 15.
I really appreciate your support! I’m trying to save money for grad school applications, and every little bit helps. More than that, though, I love hearing that my creations have made somebody smile :)
(Sorry for the repeat posting; I realized that some of the images weren’t working when I posted this as a link instead of a text post.)
I knit a Max Jumper from Where the Wild Things Are. This is my first sweater, as well as the largest project I’ve ever attempted, and I’m pretty happy with the result :) It’s over sized and wicked warm :3
There’s a wide selection of fingerless mitt patterns available on ravelry, but if you’re looking for something specific, I’m afraid I will need you to be more specific with me or contact the original poster/maker of the project you have in mind.
Gryffindor arm warmers i was asked to make.
I don’t see why Anime couldn’t qualify as geeky; if nothing else, it has a fan following and we post things having to do with fandom all the time.
And yes! That is exactly one way to get us to see a post. We also accept being sent the link to the original post (some people submit it, some send it in fanmail, the only thing that doesn’t work is to send it in an ask, as asks don’t let you send links).
So, this is my friend, at it again. This is The Hulk, Bruce Banner. He is kind of two dolls and also one doll. The Hulk ‘suit’ is much bigger and taller than the typical doll she makes and that’s because…ready for this insanity…the Bruce Banner doll fits INSIDE him. Yeup. That’s what level of nutty knitting we are at.
Then, once Bruce comes out, he has his ripped-up pants and no glasses. But he also has little adorable heart underwear and a white undershirt, and then his Avengers-style outfit with little socks, shoes, pants and purple dress shirt. Oh…and the dress shirt has functional buttonholes. And of course, he would not be complete without his heart-rate monitoring watch!
Bruce has defined arms, hands, toes, even nipples and a butt, and he’s about the cutest thing ever! All the others, Deadpool, Tony Stark, Captain America and Loki are all works of hers as well.
