My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
Granny Square Mario
First off--probably the most awesome use of granny squares ever. I like that it isn't a traditional square shape, and is just the outline of Mario. Even so, this thing must be pretty huge. I think there are over 350 granny squares on this thing (Geek Central Station).
I love this Super Mario! I used to help my Grandma Smith make these squares for tissue covers and the like, and I am not sure why I never thought about making 8 bit art with them. I might have to get started.
BTW: are these really called granny squares?
The Call of Knitted Cthulu
The creativity of knitters never stops impressing me. I really hope I can find patterns so I can make a couple of these for myself. I can just imagine the looks on people’s faces if I went into town wearing a knitted Cthulu ski mask, or the creature from the black lagoon. O the looks, muhaha, I need to get some for me and all my friends.
