Oh I'm never gonna blog again, guilty blogs have got no rhythm
Rather, I won't be blogging regularly if it means I stub my pinkie toe in the most curseworddropping worthy way I did this morning while taking photos for today's entry. Perhaps I ought to consider some steel toed felted slippers. That would be so punk rock. For the curious, quoting WHAM! lyrics falls under the Punk Rock purvue as does knitted puppets for babies. God save the Queen.
Pattern Carol H. Rhoades' Estonian Hand Puppets (See errata here)
Yarn Knit Picks Palette
Needles 29" US1 Addi Circs
Notes The pattern lets you pick and choose the options you'd like to use, body motif, arm and neck motif, color, etc. Holding one color in each hand took some getting used to before my gauge was even. There are some supremely loose floats on the sides of the puppet, but I figure time and plenty of washings will help neaten up my knitting. The trickiest part was keeping the correct tension using the magic loop method. In all, the project was perfect for beginning colorwork on small needles.
I seem to have caught the Castonitis that's making its rounds about bloglandia.
I've started Maya's Halloween costume, little baby devil pants (based on the adorable pattern found at Bella knitting, I'm sure Measure won't mind).
I added a picot border hem and altered the icord tie. I'd like to knit a matching hat but I imagine Maya will wear it for about a microsecond.
I'm knitting the sweater EZ cut a pocket into in her Knitting Workshop DVDs. If I'm feeling particularly adventurous I may cut a pocket too. The garter stitch on 10.5 US Denise Needles is mindnumbingly boring but the finished product will be worth it (if I've chosen the sizing well).
I've ended my sock knitting hiatus.
I love the feel of Regia 4 color sock yarn. Yeah it's mass produced, but so what?
