Pom-pomed Hat

I have a tendency to leave a lot of projects unfinished.  I have things that have been sitting around needing to be sewn for years now.  This week's project is one of those neglected pieces.  

It is a link-inspired hat that was initially too small.  I weaved in all the ends and then made a few pom-poms for the end.

Weeping Angel

I am a pretty big Whovian and have been looking for a good nerdy project to pick up.  I decided to make a weeping angel.

 The weeping angels are an ancient race of aliens in the form of a crying stone angel.  They are the deadliest, most powerful, most malevolent lifeform evolution has ever produced.  They are stone only as long as you are looking at them.  So don`t blink!  First seen in the episode "Blink" from season 3 in Doctor Who.

Modern Gloves

This week I dug into my chest of unfinished projects.  I found a beautiful pair of gloves I started and pretty well finished a few years ago.

They are based off a pattern I had seen a while ago called callisto gloves

I wanted to make them myself and decided to do my own pattern.I was still learning how to knit so I was playing around with a bunch of different techniques. Each glove alternates colors in the pattern.
