I've been a busy chipmunk!
My favorite nephew turns 21 tomorrow, and being as weird as I am, I couldn't just buy him the traditional first legal beer. No, I had to remind him of his early childhood when he wore a Superman cape every day under his clothes - you know, just in case.
As you can see, this cape will pull double duty. When not saving the planet, Nick will be able to nap in peace and comfort.
Steve laughed so hard when i showed him this next pattern, I had to make one for him.
It's a reversible hat, where one side tucks into the other depending on whether he is feeling naught or nice! We'll see who pays attention when hockey starts next week.
I made a few things for me as well... the dragon scale gauntlets I thought would be just for Potter-y fun are actually comfortable. I'll be making a matching bag and hooded cowl in October.
I really want it to be cold so I can wear my new Little Green Riding Hood. What can I say, I don't wear a lot of red! It has a great cabled edging too.
I'm also working on a few items I hope Christy and Andrew might be able to use in their respective classrooms... with a few more ideas up my sleeve as well.
Andrew loves space... but teaching kindergarten this year means he probably won't be able to delve into it as much as he might like. Hopefully this model of the solar system will fit in to his classroom decor and always remind him "To Boldly Go". I'm still working on the Jedi knights for his desk.
Christy loves ancient cartoon characters. I hope this mischievous pair brings some holiday cheer to her classroom. I'm working on items to replace the pumpkin once the season changes again!
