Knittin' Crap: Super Mario Lovin'

While I enjoyed playing Super Mario Bros on the Nintendo as much as the next person, I did not become Totally Obsessed For Life. Some people apparently did and have gone to great lengths to prove their love... in yarn.

MandaR's Super Mario amigurumi: DSCF4258
Super Mario star Marte here designed an Invincibility Star and was nice enough to post the pattern for free. I might need to make a few of these to throw at Brad.

And one Cassie C Smith is knitting a scarf of the entire first level of Super Mario Bros. (I really hope she's joking about the bit where she's doing it to get her boyfriend to propose. What the hell is his onerous task to get her to marry him?)

Cassie's blog actually has a lot of other geeky crafts on the web. Did you know you can make Spock Vulcan ear warmers? I didn't. And I didn't really need to. I'd be backing away from my computer right about now, except Spoon is in my lap and he's pretty hard to dislodge.

Oh, ho, that's awesome!
I especially love the star.
