I finished a costume! Not for me, although I wish I were tiny enough to fit it because it's pretty stinkin' adorable.

I made a Tiny Wonder Woman for [livejournal.com profile] eliz's little girl. She wanted to be Wonder Woman, but not, you know, with a bustier and a swimsuit bottom. So, inspired by [livejournal.com profile] luminousbeing78's Tiny USO Girl, I designed a little ruffly dress. I'm really happy with how it came out!

All together (the bracers go on her forearms; I just safety pinned them to the sleeves for the picture):

More babies means more knitting, and people seem to be having babies every time I turn around! My cousin's baby shower was this past weekend, and I made her three things: a blanket, a hat, and a wee knitted lightsaber.

1. A blanket, to match their nursery decor (yellow and navy blue, apparently involving sailboats). It's about 36" across.

2. A hat, out of the same light blue yarn I used for the blanket. It's super stretchy and will fit the baby for a long time as he grows. I didn't take a picture (finished it the day before the shower!), but here's a pic of the same hat I made in a different yarn, for a shower for one of Rogue's coworkers. (These hats are super-quick to knit. Rogue emailed me the day before the shower and asked if I could make something. I had it done by the time he was home.)

3. A wee knitted lightsaber, from the pattern that Nori designed. This was for my cousin's husband, who LOVES Star Wars. I didn't know it when I was making the lightsaber, but he's already bought a Yoda costume for the baby for next Halloween. So that should work out well.

Technical details (yarn, needle size, pattern, etc) are all on my Ravelry project pages, if you're interested.

Long, fabulous weekend-- too long to post about now. But! We were able to briefly visit with Dan and Wee Cordelia (and Dan's mom and Wayne) this evening, and we took a few pictures.

Cutest baby ever, Y/Y? )

Election-related stuff making me giggle today...

Someone at this paper is aware of all internet traditions:

Epic Win
Epic Win by Celine C on Zooomr

My friend [livejournal.com profile] wendyhouse's son loves Rock Obama:



And this one's for anyone who's 1) addicted to WoW, or 2) has a spouse/roommate who's addicted to WoW: clicky
