Supa Wristband

My roomate is allergic to metals.  He can't wear rings or chains or anything like that without irritation.  But he has a superman ring that he wears almost religiously.  When we met I said I would knit him something to replace the ring.  Nearly 3 years later here it is.

Jammer Hat

Last week was the first bout of the season for our local roller derby team.   This gave me the perfect excuse  to open up "Knockdown Knits: 30 Projects from the Roller Derby Track" and pick a pattern.

Steampunk Goggles

Today was a very good crafty day.  It was so nice and I felt empowered!  So I spent the whole day on a project. It is quite steampunk inspired.

Steampunk is a genre of Science Fiction that fuses elements of Victorian culture and technology, with elements of modern society. It is experessed in many different mediums like novels, fashion, art, gagetry, etc.

A Handful of Hearts

I have a favorite pattern I would like to share.  It's a quick project that really takes no time at all.  I use it all the time as a last minute present or something special for my friends.

I'm always a big fan of hearts.  So I find this to be a great little gift to brighten up anyone's day.  Hope you like it!
