Annie says:

Attack from Outer Space! The ebook has all your space necessities: rayguns, rockets, space helmets, and alien robots! This four pattern set is an homage to the sci-fi movies of the 50s and 60s. Drawing from classics spanning from The Day the Earth Stood Still to Barbarella, there’s a little something for every sci-fi fan here.

Rayguns are comfortable three-fingered gloves with the image of the rayguns on both sides. Metal Man Mittens have a unique construction with the gusset and thumb worked last. The Ignition legwarmers are worked bottom up with slight shaping and a generous top cuff. Noble Hero is a snug but comfortable balaclava with a fun cushy collar.

Ignition in Rios, Natural and Paris Night.

I can’t resist good kitsch! And how about that rubber wig? Hehe. You can see the whole collection on Ravelry here, or click the individual photos to go straight to the pattern pages. You can also browse our past MFPP’s here!

Jenise says:

Sleeping Beauty is a quick trip through an old tale. Knit the castle walls, or a gift for the baby princess, then at the end is the crown tee to celebrate the princess bride! Despite having such romantic inspiration, I have tried to keep everything modern and wearable. What is the sense of knitting something you won’t be able to use every day?
