We have featured a lot of fun knitting projects here on FG, and I’ve always admired/been jealous of those who have the required skills. Sure, I could learn—or I could back the Kniterate. [click to continue…]

Okay—this is clever.

An avid knitter named Abigail has developed a way to make a scarf into a fully functional maze that’s great for people with “fidgety fingers”. The pattern allows you to push a marble from one end of the maze to the other. [click to continue…]

One would think that giving someone the finger in these unicorn gloves wouldn’t be quite as effective in terms of the message, but maybe that’s not the case. Maybe, the person on the receiving end of this would be instantly captivated by the majesty of this glorious beast and feel devastated at provoking it’s ire. It must be like gazing at a beautiful rainbow in a thunderstorm.

The good news is that you can find out for free using this free knitting pattern at Ravelry. All it requires is a basic modification of existing gloves.

On December 28th 1974 the Fourth Doctor, brilliantly and memorably portrayed by Tom Baker, made his debut. Along with a delightfully odd sense of humor, a manic smile and, of course, his trademark scarf.

A standard memo was prepared to respond to such queries. That memo was shared online by 93Fangshadow, and you can see it below. [click to continue…]

rocking chair hat

Sorry, Grandma, but you’re getting replaced. This invention by students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex of ECAL is called the Low-Tech Factor Rocking-Knit is able to knit a hat all on its own — all you have to do is rock back and forth. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke: the Rocking-Knit was built for real, and it is magnificent.
