Bits and Bobs

Here's a rundown of what's been going on in NeedleNoodlesLand:

I've made fifty mini Jayne hat keychains for the Southeastern Browncoats to sell at Dragon*Con this year. Hand knit, 100% wool, with just a bit of Tunisian crochet to make things interesting.

Handknit Jayne Hat Keychains

Yeah, okay, technically, there are only maybe 30 mini Jayne hats shown in the photo above. Y'know, sometimes you just don't feel the need to search for a perfectly sized bowl for 50 keychains.

Also, I mentioned my trip to Maker Faire Detroit, but did I mention that I managed to get an Editor's Choice ribbon?

Maker Faire Detroit Editor's Choice Ribbon

Bonus points to anyone who can find me a list of the other Editor's Choice winners @ Maker Faire Detroit. There were some really great makers there, and I would be curious to see what other fine folks are on the list

And, in closing, have I mentioned that I have a new book out? :)

Not only is Yummi 'Gurumi
out and available on bookstore shelves now, I happen to have a few signed copies of my own available here. Get 'em while they still have that new book smell!

Check it out and get your amigurumi Cthulhu on!

Also, for a more detailed illustation of where to place each of the stitches for the tentacle, I have PDF tutorial available for download
