Hey, you wouldn't happen to have any recs for really warm kitted shawl patterns would you? I really want to make one for my friend but I'm just not sure where to look for a pattern!!!

Hello!!!:)  For me shawls warm me up so fast but here are four different (FREE) patterns I have done! 

The first shawl pattern is the: 

“Arlequin Shawl” by Peggy Maxhiem

      This pattern is a beautiful knit, very fast however it is a bit repetitive and can get a little boring. So for my shawl, I used several (sock) scrap yarn to keep my mind busy. This pattern was created using a gradient skein so I do recommend using more than one color to complete it!

The next pattern is the:

“Reyna” by Noora Laivola

      I have made two shawls out of this pattern and I just have to say, the eyelets and the garter are stunning! This is a simple pattern but… attention!! I made the mistake of dropping a stitch in the middle of my eyelet and ended up having to take out the entire section…. It is not as intimidating as it looks & It is actually a super fun knit! In my shawl I did a Picot bind off to give it that beautiful finish!

This next one is my absolute favorite shawl I have ever knit!!!

“Magic Spring Shawl” by Katerina Bobkova

        This pattern is amazing. The colors Katerina picked for her shawl were gorgeous. There are two versions, the magic spring shawl and the magic spring shawl mini. So you have the option of making a larger shawl or a smaller one! I knitted the smaller version for myself because I was not looking for a heavy/warmer knit but if you want something cozy, definitely knit the larger version to wrap around the neck more! I 100% recommend this pattern to anyone, you can pick three skeins of your choice and just have a lot of fun knitting this.

For a super super warm shawl:

“Knit Triangle Shawl” by Caron Design Team

        I was given the Caron Cake yarn skeins as a gift and loved the picture of the shawl on the side of the label and knew I had to make one. Oh gosh. I did not anticipate this shawl to be as large/cozy as it was. The completed shawl is the biggest I have ever done and is the warmest and stretchiest shawl I own. I used 2 skeins and it was perfect. This pattern is easy, fun and so fast its crazy. The best thing about this pattern is that the Caron cakes are sold at Michael’s craft store and they always have coupons!! This shawl can be wrapped around your shoulders like a blanket or a beautiful shawl. Here is a picture of mine:

I really hope this helped!! Happy Knitting <3<3

Okay, this is basically compiled from maybe 20-30 different sources, so there’s a lot of info here. one hella big masterpost.  Even though there’s so many, I have personally checked each link to make sure it works, so you shouldn’t have to worry about that. Note: if marked with *, it’s digital/tablet art most likely. This is a really long post, so look under the cut. Follow for more master posts and references!

Peregïn and Khadgar are strolling in a secret library.

The red is not really red, but dark pink. (TwT)

The coulours used in the program and on the pattern both match with the real yarn’s colour.

For the owner of the drawing: I send the pattern and the colour code to your email.

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.” — Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

anonymous asked:

Could you reccomend any sock patterns? I've knit a couple pairs of vanilla socks and I'd love to move on to something more interesting!

Oh gosh of course!!! Socks are my favorite thing to knit ever😭

Okay well I’ll start off with my knitting sock “bible.” It’s a PDF or book called:
“Socktacular” by Knit Picks Design Team
It comes with 12 different patterns that range from beginner to intermediate. They are all so beautiful and I love this book so much and would recommend to everyone!!! Most of my socks that I have knit, come from this book.

I do however always go for FREE patterns because, free is always the way to go (especially since I am a college student on a budget). Here are some of my favorite patterns found on Ravelry:

“Seed Stitch Socks” by Bex B
This pattern is super simple, knits up really fast, however this pattern is for an afterthought heel but I go with my heel flap because it’s my favorite! Totally up to you on your preference.

“Business Casual” by Tanis Lavallee
This is a classy pattern, super pretty. I used this pattern to knit a pair of men’s socks and I absolutely loved the outcome!! I need to knit a pair for myself😊

“Basic Ribbed Socks” by Kate Atherley
This is a rib pattern that is not just the basic K2, P2. It’s super simple to follow and great for beginners!

“Hermonie’s Everyday Socks” by Erica Lueder
Harry Potter inspired socks!!! You can’t go wrong with that😊 It’s texture pattern is easy to follow and should knit up pretty fast!

I hope this helps!!!!!! Happy Knitting❤️❤️

TFMR headcanon: Satellite bots, from medium-sized and up, have large screen on their chestplate. Very useful when sharing information.

Full body design attempt of TFMR Soundwave. Well at least I tried… Since a TV has taken its place on the chest, Laserbeak has to dock on Soundwave’s backside. I’m not sure where Ravage go, so there’s some major design flaw I have to think over.

Soundwave facts

  • Soundwave is about a couple of meters shorter than Starscream.
  • Soundwave speaks through displaying words on screen. He can also provide audio clips or sometimes produces noises like an old modem, but he does not have a voice of his own.
  • However, he can mimick other person’s voice pattern. Soundwave has a library of voice patterns he can use, and that includes majority of high-ranking Autobot officers. Hijacking an Autobot comm line and giving false orders was the most infamous trolling Soundwave was known for.
  • It is not known if sunning his solar membranes ever do anything beneficial to Soundwave’s health, but he does it often anyway because it’s warm and feels so good.
