I really love Daleks. They crack me up. How can you not love a glidey, oddly shaped thing with a plunger and an eggbeater for a gun? To top it all off, they have light shows going on on their heads when they talk (which is in a hilarious monotone.) They're awesome.

My love for those kerazy Daleks has brought these things into creation so far:
First off, I painted a pair of knock off Vans slip ons

I have also started knitting a small army of knitted Daleks using a pattern from EXTERMIKNIT!

So far I have Dalek Fay (named after hurricane Fay, which I spent most of my time knitting by candlelight in)

In progress:

Finished and being modeled by my very attractive bookshelf:

I'm also almost finished with Rhi's Dalek, which I am knitting her for Christmas. I'm going to paint a box like the TARDIS and wrap it up and stick it in another box to be mailed. It will be awesome.

I'm still brainstorming on more crafty Dalek projects. I think I'll be a Dalek next year for Halloween.

In other news, I ordered up some tasty Noro Kureyon in colorway #170 and some Knitpicks Andean Silk in Pitch to make my best friend Jessica the Fake Isle hat for Erikmas (Our Phantom of the Opera based religion. We're dorks.) I'm still waiting on the Andean silk, but I can't wait to start this hat. It's too warm here in Florida for me to have an excuse for knitting myself a hat, so at least I get to have a bit of fun making someone else one. I've always wanted to knit with Noro, too.
