Crochet + Knitting for Geeks

Verena Kuni Ha3k3ln + Str1ck3n fuer Geeks

By the way, did I mention already that my pattern generators (maze pattern generator, cellular automaton and random squares pattern generator) have been mentioned in a book? :))

I’ve read it and I also had fun with the rest of the book ;-)
I liked especially the (here already presented ;-)) crocheted hyperbolic planes and freeform work, knit-covered (computer)cords (similar to filled i-cord), yarn bombing and the secure password input, but also mobius shawls, klein bottle hats, hacked knitting machines and much more.

That reminds me, as I understand it ‘geeks’ are people who are not only superficially interested in a subject ;-)

See best for yourself, you can find more about as well as at the publishing house (O’Reilly) as well as at Amazon.de (Häkeln + Stricken für Geeks (book)und Häkeln + Stricken für Geeks (kindle));-)

Crochet Motif Earring

unikatissima Crochet Motif Earring

I found out that you can crochet really cute earrings from many crochet motifs.
Great, isn’t it? :)
By the way, you can also use the crochet motifs for rings, necklaces and pendants, bracelets, brooches etc. ;-)

If you’re looking for crochet motifs, try Jessica Tromp, e.g. ‘Womens Crochet-flowers 1’ (more available via the left navigation bar).

unikatissima’s Lace Wintersweet

unikatissima's lace knitter's advent calendar 2013

Knit a beautiful Estonian lace inspired shawl on the 24 days of Advent, every day a little bit.
In case that you don’t need a shawl simply make it a tablerunner :)
The picture just gives you an idea of what you will knit but (hopefully ;-)) don’t spoil the surprise.

Note: There is the group unikatissima at ravelry where you can discuss this pattern and my other patterns, too and where you can show us your wip (work in progress).
You can register at ravelry with your username and a valid email address only, with all other information about you it’s up to you whether you give them (at least it was like this when I registered ;-)).

Woven Advent Calendar Numbers

unikatissima Woven Advent Calendar Numbers

I’ve seen a tutorial for a cute gift wrapping from woven Space invaders and thought immediately: it must be possible to decorate an Advent calendar with them!

It is ;-)

 

For the number I used paper from an Christmas ad and for the background plain printer paper.

Here you have all numbers, enjoy :))
