After we move in August, a gift I will get for my new craft room will be a yarn bowl so that my balled yarn can't get away from me- and in classic nerdy fashion, I'm incredibly excited to get one :)
This technique is called "surface crochet" and I'd been doing it for at least a month before determining what the method was and being sad that I hadn't invented it like I thought I did. The small touches and embellishments really make these Power Wristies awesome- extra time goes into each one so that I can add this gold line around the wrist, and of course the stabilizer and repulsor discs (below) that make this design utterly amazing ;)
Each disc that I make has 3 yarn ends to weave into the disc before I can even attach it to the Power Wristie, and then I have to do it 3 more times before a pair is complete. Each Iron Man Power Wristie gets a blue repulsor disc on the palm and a white repulsor disc on the back of the hand.
Throw a pair on for instant +5 coolness and to help you channel some Tony Stark attitude and confidence. If you want a pair of your own, scoop 'em up in the Nerdifacts shop or swing by my table in Artists Alley at Fan Expo in Toronto (at the MTCC August 23-26).
