Woah, a TARDIS afghan sounds AWESOME! Are you using a pattern published somewhere, or are you creating your own?

Making my own Smiley Well... it's not really so much a pattern as me vaguely making it up as I go along. It's made out of granny daughters and granny squares though, so it's taking me FOREVER to finish. >.<

Well I finished the Iron Man gloves! They actually worked up a lot faster than I thought they would, so I might have to make myself a pair. Wink In case anyone's interested, the crochet pattern for them can be found HERE (though fair warning, the pattern is more of a guideline and you'll probably have to tweak some things).

Also, a WIP photo of the TARDIS afghan I'm working on. Its a little over 4 wide, probably going to be around 6.5 long when its done. The smallest squares are all about 1 wide, which is part of the reason its been taking me so long.

Sharpie dishes (draw with Sharpie, bake at 350F for 10 minutes, it's permanent... says Pinterest!)


Hey, just wanted to let you know that I read on a site that tests pinterest ideas that this works, but do not put those items in the dishwasher, it will come right off. Hand wash only and you might want to do a test piece just in case.

Thank you! I've been wondering if they would actually be dishwasher-safe. I did remember though, that my mom was proud of having all their dishes fit PERFECTLY into their limited cabinet space, so I probably can't do dishes anyway. I might stick with the cutting board and some engraved-handle wooden spoons or something. Hmm...
