I love those hats though. I wanted a scarf like The Doctor's, but then I realized it was knitted and it was super dooper long... Those hats are a nice tribute without being 9 feet long.  Cheesy

I'm crocheting mine. Back loop only & it gives the same horizontal ribbed effect the scarf has on the show

I like the crochet version as well! Cheesy  It is not at all a practical scarf...I might donate it for some sort of auction...the hat I will keep as a memento of this crazy knitting accomplishment! Cheesy

I just finished ... um... half finished? 5 altered playing cards for a swap. But even the one side finished is exciting Cheesy My first paintings ever. 5 of them. Woohoo!

Sadly, I'm apparently not meant to do ATC or APC or anything of the sort... I'm just not any good at making them look great. But I had fun with paint.

Suggestions on how to "finish" them? Is there something to coat them with to maybe add a hint of gloss, or at the very least keep the paint from accidentally scratching off?

I am also going to be an auntie( but not the first time) sometime this summer.
Congrats! I have had a blast with my niece. She is at the fun age of 1 1/2 and it is fun to watch her grow and figure out the world. Bizarre to think she is going to be a big sister. I am curious on what the new baby will be like and how Michelle will react to it. She already gets jealous when her mom holds her younger second cousin. How many nieces/nephews do you have already?

On a crafty note - I haven't got much done at all this year. I carved 4 stamps, but that was on the same night. My brain wants to craft but my body is telling me no with a streak of migraines everyday for the past 1.5 weeks. I get them all the time, but when I have them everyday without a day to recover it just runs me down. So, not much from me, but I am sure I will be forcing myself to make something soon, and I am sure it will be baby related or probably more stamps for me to place in letterboxes in FL next month.

I have to say that knitting completely boggles my mind.  Love all the cool stuff you yarnies come up with, but whoa... how you do it?  Haven't a clue.
