Pummeling somebody with squeaky baby's toys is always a good way to straighten them out.

So, my sister knitted this for me. And it is fucking amazing and profoundly nerdy. Here I am modeling it, be awed the wonder that is The Wesley Sweater:





Oh my gods, that is the best knitted shirt ever! Made even better by the adorable model

How much are she selling these for? I might actually have to buy one. And I'm not usually a fan of knitted stuff.

I could never never never be that close to Wesley. You do know he was a child, right?

I just noticed that teacake turned Janeway into a Pony.

Sweet.

That sweater is awesome TSQ!



My wife prepared a little surprise for my daughter yesterday.




And my sister just posted this picture of my nephew getting ready for a hockey game. He's the goalie.

Prices will vary a lot depending on size and how long it takes her to make them. Depending on the complexity of the pattern and the price of the materials used her custom sweaters normally go for $100-$300. Seriously, let me know if you're interested!

What's that painting in the lower left hand corner of the first and second photos? Is that a portrait of a person that you made yourself or a print of somebody else's work?

One of my wife's friends made a similar comment when this was posted on facebook.

She has another special bath planned for her birthday which is on St. Patrick's Day so the colour of the bath will be a little less disturbing then!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Wow! That's very impressive. You're very skilled with the human face and its features.

Is this in your personal collection or one you're considering selling? We have sidewalk arts and crafts festivals and city-sponsored art shows that would eat something like this up.

That's terrific! What's really great about it is that most people won't even know it's Star Trek Wesley Crusher inspired, as it has more of a 80's retro look about it. And then those that know TNG will definitely get it.

Oh and I can only imagine how today's Will Wheaton would kill to have that kind of waistline.

Ha! (Adorable x 1000). I'll bet she'll remember that day alright. Was the bubble bath strawberry scented?

Thank you. I don't know about selling him. I'm very fond of him and he took rather a long time. However...things are tight. I have thought about selling on the street before. I very seriously considered it when I was unemployed, actually.

TSQ, you should totally tweet or email those pics to Wil Wheaton! He would adore them!
