Geek-A-Long 2015: Don Paolo

Week 21 Don Paolo (4)

I LOVE my Nintendo 3DS. It fits in my purse, holds a charge for hours, and I take piles of games with me so I don’t have to decide upfront what I’m going to want to play later. I play games on a DS far more often than I play on any other console. We paid homage to a few games last year and we have a few more on deck this year (and just wait til you see 2016!). I wanted to make sure that this year we gave the DS it’s due, so this week the Geek-A-Long honors my favorite of all the DS games: Professor Layton.

Week 21 Don Paolo (1)

If you’ve never played the games, I can’t over recommend them. They’ve got it all: romance, intrigue, crazy scooby-doo level villain disguises, and some of the most delightfully frustrating puzzles you’ll ever play. Seriously, to those of you that have played them, do you remember the chocolate puzzle from the first game? That one gave me fits. Not only are the puzzles a really fun challenge, their general juxtaposition is pretty fantastic. The title character, Layton, has a nephew named Luke that travels around with him solving crimes, and EVERYTHING Layton sees reminds him of a puzzle that he wants Luke to solve.

See that piece of trash, Luke? That reminds me of a puzzle!

Look Luke, that sweet old woman can’t get her cat out of a tree… That reminds me of a puzzle!

Well Luke, it seems we are being chased by a vampire. Must be puzzle time!

Week 21 Don Paolo (3)

The best thing about games is the master of invention and disguise, Don Paolo. Paolo is an unrivaled scientist, and although we are meant to see Layton as his equal when it comes to invention, that never held up for me. Layton seemed a bit like the MacGyver to Paolo’s DaVinci. Paolo’s flying machine was awesome, and Layton’s looked like it could easily grace the pages of Regretsy.

Capable of disguising himself as literally anyone, from a little girl to a rotund elderly doctor. My favorite of his disguises is Dr. Schrader, and that is what I chose to feature on the square. In cannon, Paolo didn’t create most of the puzzles you must solve to beat the game, but he did make a few of them. While the real Schrader is incapacitated, Paolo disguises himself as the doctor and gives Layton the Medicine Time Puzzle. The “x” on the square is the solution to that puzzle, and by solving it the real Schrader will get the medicine he needs.

Week 21 Don Paolo (5)

One of the other things I love about Paolo is that he isn’t the stereotypical “villain” that you would normally see in a puzzle (and not plot) based game. His rivalry with Layton started when Layton stole the woman of his dreams. Much like anti-hero’s in the vein of Magneto, it’s not that he’s evil, or even bad, he just wants some justice. So this week we give it to him with an homage to one of my favorite Paolo costumes, and the first puzzle he personally hands out.

Whether you’re knitting, crocheting, or cross stitching this square, you can download the Don Paolo pattern here. When you’re finished making it, don’t forget to tweet or instagram your squares at me @Doctor_Llama or Jac @jac_attacking with the hashtag #geekalong, so we can all oooh and ah at it together.

Peacock Kneasock

Peacock 5

I am thrilled to introduce the newest pattern from Lattes & Llamas, the Peacock Kneasocks. These warm and elegant knee socks are the perfect statement piece, striking and subtle at the same time. The stitch repeats are deceptively simple, and although these are knee socks they knit up relatively quickly. Thanks to the generous yardage of Cascade Heritage 150 skeins, you will only need one ball of each color for the socks regardless of what size you are making. You can get the pattern as a Ravelry download right now by clicking the button below:

$3.99

A PDF will be emailed to you by Ravelry. You don’t need to be a Ravelry member to order, but if you are, the PDF will show up in your library. If you are a member of Ravelry, you can view the Peacock Kneasocks here.

Peacock 8

Peacock Keasocks are an ideal project for knitters with some sock and color-work experience, however the charts are simple and you don’t need to be an expert sock knitter to enjoy making them! Sizes are listed in both women’s shoe size and final circumference to help you choose the perfect size for you. They feature a brand new heel technique invented right here in the L&L laboratory that is designed to give a perfect fit with no pesky gaps. Worked from the top down, it’s incredibly fun and satisfying to watch the tail feather pattern developing.

Peacock 10

Peacock 2

Knit up in fun and funky Cascade Heritage 150, these will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe. The Heritage 150 has such a generous yardage that a single skein of each color will be all you need to make a complete pair of knee-socks, no matter what size you are making! Oh, and not that this yarn even needs any other selling points, but it’s machine wash and dry. If you’re anything like me, that’s a major incentive. ;)

And here you thought knee socks were just for Quidditch.

2015 Geek-A-Long: Gregor Mendel

Week 20 Mendel (1)

There isn’t much to say about Gregor Mendel’s personal life. He liked bees and had some kids before he joined the church to help pay for his schooling. He became a friar and then an abbot later in life. What do you say about a guy who spent nearly ten years cultivating peas in his free time? I can only hope he came up with some great recipes to use them. French pea soup? Braised peas with onion and dill? Sweet peas with prosciutto? Sauteed cod with pea cream? Cold pea soup aside, this week we’re memorializing Gregor Mendel for his contributions to science as the father of genetics.

Week 20 Mendel (3)

I’m sure most of you know about Mendel and his thousands of pea plants, how he crossbred them and kept careful notes on seven specific traits. I remember learning about Mendelian Inheritance in school. What I think is really interesting about Mendel and his work (you know, instead of “wooo, genetics!”) is that people thought he merely proved what they already knew. It was seen as a study on hybridization instead of what it actually was, a study on inheritance. And that is the most tragic thing ever.

I mean, sure… A bunch of European scientists re-discovered his work decades later, and in 1915 Mendel’s theories were integrated with Thomas Hunt Morgan’s chromosome theory of inheritance, which would become the core of classic genetics. But you’re missing the bigger picture here. People like Charles Darwin were unaware of Mendel’s work. While Darwin was unsuccessfully trying to explain inheritance through Pangenesis, Mendel had a piece of the puzzle. We could’ve had thirty more years of genetic studies under our belts.

I’ll just let that sink in.

Week 20 Mendel (4)

To represent Gregor Mendel, we chose to use a simple Punnett Square. Named after Reginald Punnett who developed the approach, this diagram shows possible combinations of maternal alleles with paternal alleles.

Week 20 Mendel (2)

Whether you’re knitting, crocheting, or cross stitching this square, you can download the Gregor Mendel pattern here. Instructions for both knit and crochet are listed in the pattern. When you’re finished making it, don’t forget to tweet or instagram your squares at me @jac_attacking or Megan-Anne @Doctor_Llama with the hashtag #geekalong!

If you’re having trouble with double-sided knitting, we have a how-to video here and a tutorial on crochet here. Want to hang out with other people making the blanket? You can find moral support in the Geek-A-Long group on Ravelry here.

Seriously though, he referred to bees as “my dearest little animals.” How cute is that?

Here's our loot from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival! #knitting #mdsw #mdsw2015 #yarn #bijoubasinranch #goinggnome #needlefelting

A photo posted by Jacquline "Cappuccino" Rivera (@jac_attacking) on

Yesterday, I told you about our trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival through pictures. I’m gonna be up front and say that I have a bad case of the “star-strucks.” When I met Mike Krahulik, I was literally unable to speak to him. I said stuff inside my head, but was later informed by Jac that all I managed to croak out was some kind of guttural noise akin to that of a “dying toad.” So even though one of my favorite things about festivals and conventions is getting to meet the artists I admire, it’s also one of the hardest things for me. I hung out with Debbie Bliss once, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t embarrass myself, but I get kinda weird when I admire people. I’m thrilled to say I managed to get all the way through MDSW without embarrassing myself*, even though I met some really amazing folks including the artist at Incognito Sheep and the yarn-masters at Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns.

Bijou Basin Yarn (4)

Bijou Basin Lhasa Wilderness Yarn

I’ve been a fan of Bijou Basin Yarn for a long time, so checking out their booth was super high on my to-do list. I used their delightfully squishy yak yarn for the Scarlet Letterman’s Jacket, but never actually had a chance to meet the legends behind the yarn before MDSW.

Scarlet Letterman Jacket

I’m a total fangirl for that yak yarn, and I can’t even get over what a cool background Carl and Eileen Koop (the owners of Bijou Basin) have. Did you know that she is responsible for Oxiclean? She’s basically a mad genius, and I couldn’t leave without some of those sweet sweet yak fibers and a few bottles of Allure.

Day 2 - Bijou Basin Ranch (1)

Me and Carl Koop of Bijou Basin. He is incredibly tall and basically had to kneel to get in the frame with me ;)

I’m planning on giving the Allure Wash a run for it’s money tomorrow when I must block all the socks. I don’t enjoy blocking, but a good wool-wash can really take the edge off doing something I don’t like.

The extra special surprise of the weekend was Incognito Sheep. I’ve decided to get rich and then buy all of her paintings. Every. Single. One. And just plaster my studio with them.

Pompous Ass by Connie Togel

We did not photograph Connie’s paintings, because it seems like kind of a dick move to photograph and more or less distribute a painting here on my blog. At least most of the time, I aim to be not a dick. So I’m showing you a few of my favorites from her site. Click on the photos to head over to the site and get some of Connie’s prints for yourself. Me and Jac and Alena each picked up a necklace with a printed tile of one of her paintings at the show.

*that’s actually not true. I walked out of a yarn booth into a super crowded corridor where I stood for a bit before I discovered that my skirt had been stuck up under my backpack since I was in that booth. So sorry to the 800 or so people that may have seen my panties that day. If I’d have known it was going to happen, I would have worn cuter ones. ;)

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

Day 2 - Enterance (2)

We’ve been back from Maryland Sheep and Wool for about a week now, and it’s taken about that long to recover from the sunburns and general fun. My calves and my wallet still hurt.

I’m not overly fluent in internet, so I didn’t figure out I should be hashtagging MDSW until the end of the weekend. I know that considering what I do for a living you would think I would know these things, but honestly, I don’t spend that much time in forums. I literally only just learned what the “DN” in DNS/DNH/DND/DNW means, and those show up on our Ravelry group daily*. Anyhow, even though I didn’t do a great job of live tweeting (and let’s be real, no one thought I would ;) I did take lots of regular pictures. For your convenience I have included some background music for you while you scroll through the pics…

So with no further ado, cue the montage!

2015 Geek-A-Long: Jadzia Dax

Week 19 Jadzia Dax (5)

Star Trek is more than just an amazing show, it is a ground-breaking cultural phenomenon. It featured the first bi-racial kiss on American Television. It depicted women and minorities in positions of power and equality. In Starfleet, it doesn’t matter if you are a teenager, woman, minority, alien, android, or sentient hologram. If you want to pursue a career in science and/or leadership, no one will stand in your way.

So this week, the Geek-A-Long honors Jadzia Dax as one of the amazing, butt-kicking, name-taking, non-conforming scientists that makes Star Trek such and influential fandom.

Week 19 Jadzia Dax (3)

There are A LOT of scientists on Star Trek. Off the top of my head I can think of Bones, Spock, Scottie, Data, Geordi, Barclay, Troy (Psychology is science!), Wesley & Beverly Crusher, Tuvok, Jadzia & Ezri Dax, Tuvok, The Doctor, and Tucker. After typing that list, I googled “starfleet science officers” just to see how many would come up. The list is lengthy. I’m embarrassed that I missed Miles O’Brien in my list. ;) The point is, with that many to choose from it was tough to decide which one to feature on the square. Bones and/or Spock would have been the conventional choices, but I chose Jadzia because of her complete lack of interest in convention.

Week 19 Jadzia Dax (4)

This is the part where I would normally tell you about our scientist’s back-story, but honestly, I couldn’t possibly write a single coherent paragraph on it. Afterall, the Dax half of her* was on it’s 8th life when it joined with Jadzia, and none of those lives were simple ones. More succinct writers than me sum up Jadzia Dax well here and if you haven’t watched DS9, I highly recommend it. It’s my second favorite Trek, only after TNG. Today is Mother’s Day, and I am really proud to celebrate it with a character that inspires people, no matter who they identify as, to take charge, make waves, and do science.

This week’s square features the Starfleet Officer’s communicator pin surrounded by Jadzia’s trademark Trill spots. I tried to capture the look of the hand drawn spots (fun fact: Terry Farrell had to have those spots individually drawn on for filming), and I’m really happy with how it came out.

Week 19 Jadzia Dax (1)

*That’s an oversimplification. Jadzia identifies as a woman, and Dax has no gender. “I’ve been a mother 3 times and a father twice.”~Jadzia Dax

Whether you’re knitting, crocheting, or cross stitching this square, you can download the Jadzia Dax pattern here. When you’re finished making it, don’t forget to tweet or instagram your squares at me @Doctor_Llama or Jac @jac_attacking with the hashtag #geekalong, so we can all oooh and ah at it together.

Quick Knitted Gifts for Mom

I have a lot of moms in my life. Maybe it’s because all of my friends are having children now or the simple fact that I come from a blended family, but I end up buying a lot of cards and bouquets this time of year. Things are going to be different this Mother’s Day though. Instead of spending a bunch of money on Hallmark cards, I used leftover yarn instead!

With all of the socks Megan-Anne and I have been making lately, we have several tiny balls of sock yarn lying around. I’m a yarn hoarder at heart, and I’m always convinced I’ll use the leftovers to make a blanket or something one day. But, it always ends up collecting dust instead. In an effort to turn over a new leaf and make some sweet gifts for my moms along the way, I designed a few pieces to use up my sock yarn. Here a couple of the gifts I knitted, and the patterns (for free!) that go with them:

 – – – Sock Drawer Sachet – – –

sock drawer sachet

One of my mom’s loves candles, bubble bath, and artisan soaps. So, what should you knit for the woman who loves to smell pretty and pamper herself? A Sock Drawer Sachet! This small knitted pouch works up quickly and can hold your favorite potpourri to keep your sock drawer smelling pretty. I filled mine with lavender. Click the link to download a free PDF of the Sock Drawer Sachet knitting pattern.

 – – – Buttoned French Press Cozy – – –

Buttoned French Press Cozy

Sometimes your French Press wants to wear a sweater. I mean, how else is it going to keep that delicious dirty bean water warm? This coffee press cozy knits up quickly and uses less than 20 grams of sock yarn. All you need is one mini-skein, three buttons, and a pair of needles! Click the link to download a free PDF of the Buttoned French Press Cozy knitting pattern.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! I hope you enjoy these patterns. If you knit them, don’t forget to share the pics with me on instagram by using the hashtag: #lattesandllamas

Now, lets all cozy up on the couch, sip some coffee, and watch Mommy Dearest with our moms. 

2015 Geek-A-Long: Pinky and the Brain

week 18 Pinky and the Brain (3)

I’ve had the theme song to Pinky and the Brain stuck in my head all week. I pulled out the crochet squares Monday night to photograph them. (I meant to write this post then since I knew I’d be in Maryland for the Sheep and Wool Festival, but life happened and now I’m writing this Saturday night in my hotel room.) And the song has been playing on repeat in my head ever since. I’m not sure which is more impressive, the fact that I still remember all of the words nearly 10 years later or that it was still stuck in my head after watching Pitch Perfect with my husband the other night. (My husband, on the other hand, has been humming “Starships.”)

I hope all of you have that stuck in your head now.

Pinky and the Brain first made their appearance on Steven Spielberg’s Animaniacs. The cartoon contained a slew of slap stick comedy and pop culture references, but the highlight of the show, for me anyway, was Pinky and the Brain. It was really no surprise when they finally got their own spin-off show in 1995. Who wouldn’t want to watch to genetically altered lab rats try and fail to take over the world every night?

week 18 Pinky and the Brain (1)

I know I should probably talk about Brain, since he was the mastermind behind the world domination plots, but I always liked Pinky the best. I loved his non-sequiturs. Almost every episode, Brain would say, “Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?” And Pinky would respond with, “I think so, Brain, but [insert awesome non-sequitur here].”

…where will we find a duck and a hose at this hour?

…if we didn’t have ears, we’d look like weasels.

…isn’t Regis Philbin already married?

…how are we gonna teach a goat to dance with flippers on?

…what if the chicken won’t wear the nylons?

Comedic gold, right? That’s why I felt as if Pinky belonged on the square with Brain. Originally, it was just Brain, but how can you have one without the other?

week 18 Pinky and the Brain (4)

Whether you’re knitting, crocheting, or cross stitching this square, you can download the Pinky and the Brain pattern here. Instructions for both knit and crochet are listed in the pattern. When you’re finished making it, don’t forget to tweet or instagram your squares at me @jac_attacking or Megan-Anne @Doctor_Llama with the hashtag #geekalong!

2015 Prize Baskets: WEBS Yarn Store

webs promo photoI haven’t been shy about my feelings regarding Valley Yarns. I freaking LOVE their Huntington Sock Yarn. So when they agreed to join us as a Geek-A-Long benefactor I was beyond thrilled.

Before I tell you about the WEBS and what they donated, here is a quick reminder for those of you just joining the Geek-A-Long:

We’re raffling off four prizes again this year and in order to be eligible to win one of the three prizes, you must post a picture of your completed 2015 blanket to the Ravelry GAL group by January 31, 2016. The blanket must contain 24 of the 48 squares released in 2015, be joined and edged. Just like last year, the fourth prize will be raffled off for just being a member of the group. If you’re not a member, however, it isn’t too late to join and get in on the fun! You can find everything you’ll need to know about the Geek-A-Long on the FAQ page.

WEBS donations (1)

Huntington has been a go to yarn for me for a while. I made the Shersocks and the Cunning Socks out of it, and they’ve been some of our most popular patterns. WEBS generously donated the yarn to make a full set of Shersocks (you’ll be getting the full Kniterary pattern set in the basket) AND a $25 gift card for each basket!

Shersocks

Shersocks

WEBS (or yarn.com) is my go-to online LYS. I call it that because even though it’s an online store, I get the LYS treatment there. The selection’s amazing, the customer service is friendly and knowledgeable, and don’t even get me started on the sales.

About WEBS

WEBS – America’s Yarn Store is located in the picturesque Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. A second-generation, family owned business, WEBS has been the destination for knitters, weavers and spinners for over 30 years.

Right now they are in the middle of their anniversary sale, which is not to be missed. Personally, I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to get myself a big ‘ol set of needles (you can’t have too many!), and now I’m thinking I had better go get them asap.

WEBS donations (2)

Thank you for your generous donation to the Geek-A-Long participants, WEBS! You can also find the WEBS on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry, and their website.  If you’d like to see the other Geek-A-Long benefactors, you can find them here.

This Stash Has Come Between Us

Jac and I are pretty stoked about heading out to the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival this weekend. We don’t get out as much as we would like to, so festivals are one of the few opportunities we have to hang out with “our people.” (You know, the kind of folks with yarn stashed all over the house, and a “just in case” ball and needles in the car.) We try to be responsible yarn owners, but it’s hard.

Look, I need my yarn. You never know what you’re going to want for that next project, so really, having a massive dragon-like hoard of it is just me being practical. And economical! If I keep it on hand, then I won’t have to go buy new yarn for each new project. I can just get it when it’s on sale and save it for a rainy day. Apparently though, removing clothing from a bedroom drawer so that I could fill it with the “special yarn” (you guys know what I mean! The really good stuff.) was taking it a step further than Mr. Llama could handle:

Him: You have a box of yarn under the bed. Put it in there.

Me: No can do. That’s my zombie apocalypse back-up yarn. And this is my fancy yarn. They should be stored separately.

Him: Zombie apocalypse back-up?

Me: Well, the regular apocalypse yarn is in a bin in the office. That’s just the standard surviving-the-end-of-the-world-fibers. This is a carefully chosen selection of those yarns, in a convenient travel sized pack, in case we have to leave in a hurry.

So yeah, I think we can agree that’s a pretty normal thing to have.

Just one more row baby.

Anyhow, Kev overheard me telling Jac we could get all the yarn at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, because they have a UPS table set up and I can just ship my new stash home to myself. (Genius!) And he seems to be under the very wrong impression that I don’t need more yarn. Silly, silly husband. You knew who I was when you married me.

It’s ok, our marriage survived my Christmas tree topper, and it’ll survive my stash. Let me know if you’ll be at the festival this weekend, I’d love to meet you! If you run into us there, we’ll hook you up with a free pattern of your choice from our Ravelry Store and enter you in a drawing for a free month of our S.O.C.K. Mini-Vacation Yarn Club, a yarn club for mini-skein lovers. To help us make sure everyone gets their stuff, just grab a pic with us when you see us and tag us in it on social media. That way we’ll be able to find you (digitally find you that is… I promise not to show up at your house) to get you your pattern and enter you in the raffle.

~Megan-Anne
I love that he thinks there’s only one box of yarn under the bed.
