Sarah Illenberger's brain

Sarah Illenberger's brain is made of yarn, and what a beautiful brain it is! She has other knitted organs too... very delicate.

fifteen minutes

Oh I'm so flattered! Someone submitted one of my crafty projects, the heat-resistant hair-iron cozy, to one of my all-time favourite websites: the Craft: blog ! So nice to hear someone found the idea useful.

Thanks, kind stranger. Together, we can cozy the world! Once I stop blushing.

knit(ting) robots

Yesterday I found out that a friend of mine is pregnant (yay!), and my first thought: now I have an excuse to knit Jess Hutch's plush robot toy! To find a picture, I googled the words "knit robot"... and wow, I found some funny things out there.

Here is the adorable robot I had in mind, on Jess' website

Here is a robot knit by the Knitting Physicist, complete with blinking LEDs:

And finally, Tim Johnson's knitting robot, made of lego! Courtesy of the Hook and I.
