Sorry about the headcanon spam but I really wanted to share one last one. Samuels loves that humans can create things so he wants to try too. He gets a hobby, but picks something considered more feminine like knitting or seeing or crocheting. Ripley comes home to him working on something while he's all tangled in string and she's about to laugh at him until she holds up his crudely made thing he's working on and it (sorry,hit a text limit)

So cute~ I cant~ D:

(Someone draw her wearing this frumpy nightmare of a sweater please… or maybe it would be a scarf, that’s a simpler pattern for beginners. I actually think that he’d be quite good with his hands and would master sewing/knitting quickly, but failed knitting projects would look cuter.)

I imagine the Jones knit cat looking something like this:

Aaaand now I want one.

DIY Rug or Wall Art

I made this awesome rug with some scrap yarn, rope/twine, and an old t-shirt! I really love how it turned out. I originally tried to follow the tutorial from Free People, here, but after many failed attempts to cut a perfect circle from cardboard that was big enough I gave up. I stumbled across this tutorial from Flax & Twine, a blog which features a lot of finger knitting  projects. I kind of put the two tutorials together to create this! 

I used the hula hoop and old t-shirt as the base for the rug. Instead of using finger knitted yarn, I used rope and other types of yarn and ribbon as featured by Free People. 



Posting these on tumblr too. I started making this scarf in August 2014 and worked on it off and on. Finally I spent the entirety of yesterday (minus food breaks of course) finishing the knitting. The damn tassels took at least 2 hours but I was finally done at 2:45am. And I know it’s not perfect- trust me I know every single mistake. But I MADE IT and I’m super proud of myself. Which doesn’t happen very often. So yeah.



I’ve been working on this thing for YEARS. Literal years.  It’s my in-between-projects project, so I’ve been doing a few rows here and there since oh 2008 or so…

I’m really proud of how it turned out.  The photos don’t do the yarn justice either.  The colors are so spectacular and every strand has like 9 colors in it. It’s also crazy soft and amazing. Did I mention that it’s GIANT? It covers our entire Queen bed.  Perhaps that’s why it took so long…


yarn: Lion Brand Homespun in ‘Fiesta’, size 8 needles, knitted in rib

Anyone know of a good resource to get either free or inexpensive knitting patterns for beginners?

I’m not very good at it yet, but I’m looking for some simple little projects. It’s been helping keep my hands busy.

Emphasis on simple. I can look up some stitches I’m unfamiliar with or whatever, but I need something I can stomach. I am a true beginner.

Thanks everyone! :)
