Ever since I saw the first Star Wars I always wondered why you wouldn’t just fight like this. I guess Jedi would want to fight with honor? Then again that’s probably why I love the sith more.

Tell 6 facts about your self and then tag others and tell them to do the same

Tagged by natalunasans

1. I have only been watching Doctor Who for the past 2 years, and I have already seen some episode(s) with all the Doctors

2. My entire elementary-high school was taught online, so if I don’t know what a popular recess game is (never played dodgeball until I was 14), that is the reason

3. I am a 3rd degree black belt in ATA Taekwondo

4. I completed Calculus I-III, Physics I-II, and most of my non-Engineering electives before I came to college because my school had a program with local universities so that I could take college credit early.

5. While I write with my right hand, I do most other stuff left-handed or ambidextrously (with either hand equally well)

6. At some point in my life, I was allergic to almost anything, including almost every tree in the Eastern US, animal dander, and wheat bread. Most have been outgrown, though.

Look out Optimus Prime!

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
