I made the red one early this year and I remember needing more than 1 skein of the Charisma.  The brown one seemed like it used about half the skein of the homespun.  I would give an estimated guess of around 170 yards.

I've been looking for a super cute pixie and I couldn't find a free pattern I liked. So my solution...Make one! This hat is super simple. It's knitted on a pair of strait needles and is essentially a large rectangle until you sew it up.

Pattern Link: http://positori.blogspot.com/2011/10/free-knit-pattern-autumn-pixie-hood.html




For the Autumn Pixie Hood above I used Homespun yarn in Prairie for the brim and Earth for the remaining body. I mixed my yarn colors in the fringe for a more blended look.

For a Red Riding Hood look I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn in red. It's super chunky and velvety soft. Because the yarn is chunkier than the homespun the hood came out a bit larger even though the pattern is the same stitch count.



I hope you all enjoy the pattern Smiley
If you have a Ravelry Account I'd love to see your finished hat Cheesy

Also! If your going to paint a plunger (haha...who would have thought they'd be painting a plunger!?) be sure to sand it first. Otherwise the spray paint will chip right off. Smiley

I wanted to share my Pink Barbie Dalek Dress I wore to Dragon*Con this year.  I'd like to say thanks to Nathaniel C. Propes for his image and Geeks are Sexy.com for featuring me on their site. Cheesy *so happy* Also a thanks to Epbot.com for the photo feature. Smiley My running joke was that (since I'm pink and mostly likely in the Barbie universe) that I would EXFOLIATE! haha...good times. The second time wearing my Dalek I chose to wear it with my pink Haurko wig since I love how comfortable that wig is.


I wanted to showcase my plunger of pretty, pink, bedazzled, doom! I felt the rinestones and the pink paint really brought that prop to life. I had a blast screaming EXFOLIATE at random con-goes and Doctor Who fans alike! While dressed as my obnoxiously pink dalek I met the 7th doctor himself, Mr. Sylvester McCoy!


I was sooo excited! I think I was the first cosplayer to notice him at the bar drinking Gin and Tonic with his handlers. Smiley I watched his Doctor Who panel and I must say he is a pretty funny and witty man. I quite enjoyed it.


I drew my original concept last September. I fell in love with the idea of a Dalek dress, and mine HAD to be pink. I stuck as close to my drawing as I possibly could. Cheesy  My boyfriend did all the wiring for my headband and I LOVE how it lights up in the dark.  The little Dalek ears are just clear plastic shot glasses I bought at the dollar store. Then lightly coated with a semi-transparent spray paint for the LED's to bounce off of.


These are my materials for my Dalek spheres. You can buy them at Joanns and they're already cut in half. I had a total of 28 spheres. The little lips were sanded off and then I primed them with a grey primer, gave them a coat of silver diamond dust, and then a clear gloss.  They turned out really nice.  This blog has a fabulous tutorial on how she made her dress. She shows her process on prepping the spheres and how to get them to hold: http://www.jessieforrester.com/post/9083862684/dalek-costume-tutorial-archive

I am so happy with the outcome of this costume. Cheesy  Sorry about all the photo watermarks, I used these images on my blog as well. Thanks for looking! Smiley
