I already gave it away without taking pictures because I am a knob.


I will be knitting one for myself. So photo will come eventually. Wink

Guys, I've upped it one more notch.

With my spare leftover Lopi, I knit a friend a Jayne hat iPod cozy. Just mini-fied the hat, and elongated it a bit, so that it would hit an iPod. Apparantly, he's already gotten comments. "OMG is that the Jayne hat from Firefly? ON YOUR iPOD?"

Rock. Totally rock. All of my spare Lopi is going towards those.  Cheesy

Heh, depends on the person. I charge 30 bucks CND for friends, when the yarn cost me 10. I charge non-friends 50, and they still pay up. Shocked

Man, I'm sooo glad the Browncoat fever is spreading! GREAT hats, everyone.

I myself have sold 8 hats already to interested friends, and need to knit two more in anticipation for the Serenity premiere! Soooo excited.
45  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Geek knits - an interesting philosophy on: July 26, 2005 11:01:33 AM
OK, I was talking with some of my geeky crafty friends this morning while I was suppsoed to be working, and we sort of realized a simple, obvious, yet fascinating revelation:

Notice that most if not all, geek television shows/movies/books have some form of knitted objects in them? Knitted objects that become memorable in some way? Also, for smarter geeks, there seems to be a huge fascination with tying patterns and formulas to knitting. It's quite fascinating!

Off the top of my head, I can think of several geek-based knits, just by looking at these forums:

- Jayne Cobb's hat (from Firefly, in fact, I started that thread here on Craftster)
- Tom Baker's Doctor Who scarf
- Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy knit dolls from the movie(Ive seen some awesome attempts at Marvin!)
- Harry Potter scarves, sweaters, etc. (not to mention the several knitting references IN the books - there's a thread about that here somewere)

For science-minded knitters, we have:

- The ever-fascinated Fibonacci sequence, which people attach to knitting in a variety of different ways.
- The works-amazing-with-knitting Moebius scarf
- Hats fabricated on the ever-interesting science of Klein bottles.
- And my latest discovery, and possibly one of my favorites in the way of geek, the Probability Pullover.

That's just a small, small list of what geeky things can be knit. Add to the list! Discuss! What other geeky knits are there?

Oh, do not get me started on the permiere! Bah, too late...

Silk screening is another fun hobby of mine. I plan to silkscreen this image (minus the right text, Photoshopped out) into a shirt, and wear it with the Jayne hat.  Cheesy

Plus, I have a lovely brown coat my mom is loaning to me. Browncoats, unite!

Man, don't I know it! Everyone and their gorram sister wants me to make them one Wink I usually only charge for the cost of yarn though, cause I really enjoy knitting them - and the praise I get from them gives my ego great boosts. Wink

Yeah, I did notice that your orange was quite bright - weird, cause I have orange Lopi that's a deep orange, like in the show. Maybe they don't offer that colour at your LYS?

Nonetheless, I'm glad you guys found a good substitute - I personally don't find Lopi too itchy, but then I've worn a lot of animal fibres in my day, I think my skin is accustomed to it.

Whoa, your colour is like, identical to mine, but we used different yarns. Awesome!

50  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled wristband, with pattern! on: May 07, 2005 09:16:39 PM
Hey everyone! Long time no see!

I've knit a neat little cabled wristband for myself out of some nice merino wool I had laying around. I knew I wanted a cable on it, and instead of finding a pattern, I decided to wing it. (Although, I have no doubt there is a similar or identical pattern out there somewhere, it's quite basic.)

Here it is:

And here's the pattern. It's very very easy, anyone can do it! I especially suggest it if you are new to cables, it's a fun, easy, small project to learn them on.

CO 18 sts.

Row 1 (WS): k1, p1, k1, k3, p6, k3, k1 p1, k1.

Row 2 (RS): k1, p1, k1, p3, k6, p3, k1, p1, k1.

Rep Row 1.
Rep Row 2.
Rep Row 1. (5 rows).

Row 6: k1, p1, k1, p3, c6f, p3, k1, p1, k1

Rep pattern until piece meas approx. 7.5" long. Or, if you're like me, wing it; while the stitiches are still on the needle, see if the band will stretch around your wrist. You can try and make your cable line up when you stitch it together. I didn't worry about it too much.


Sew up your side seams and weave in your ends.

That's it! Any questions or comments, please post! This is my first "original" *laugh* pattern, so I'm pretty proud.
