Ski masks are meant to be scary!

Freaky, huh? What's worse is my brother is under there. So, the odd thing is I don't know what's scarier; when it's down and the crooked skull-like smile is in view, or the folded up almost Gilligan-esque hat. I shudder thinking of a three hour tour on the day of the dead. Good news is that this little number will keep you warm while sending chills into the hearts of those around you!

Entitled, "Jackyll & Hide" this was published in the free online ezine - knitty. Interested in the original pattern? Visit it here!

Little Grey Men

My Cousin Moosa (who incidentally is one of the most amazing people that I've had the privilege to meet... yet I'm lucky enough to be related to), went away for his first year of college in lovely, luscious, and freakin' freezing Vermont. To keep him cool but not cold I knitted him up this Alien Knit scarf from my favorite, Stitch 'N Bitch. I changed a few things so that it wouldn't be obscenely wide and to keep it from rolling in on itself.

I also love that I knitted this thing while watching my brother's entire box set of The X Files. Kinda fun, and turned out spiffy, don't you think?
