Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was lovely.
I'm knee deep in dissertation at the moment, but am still knitting here and there for my sanity. Nothing stops panic like purl. Nevertheless, apparently this process renders me unable to actually finish anything. Sigh. That's right folks, I'm a bad crafter; I surge on with the next project before completing the last. Here are the latest victims;
|I think this yarn might be radioactive.
1. Knitted hand grenade. Yes, in a moment of crisis I seized my copy of Knitorama and decided to make a luminous pink hand grenade (drop stitches not bombs, right?). I managed to knit it in the time it took to watch The Bodyguard, but it still has yet to be assembled.
If you think fried egg ear muffs, mohair knickers and pints of crochet could be your thing, I wholly recommend purchasing Rachael Matthews' Knitorama.
2. Baby Mary-Janes. A friend of mine is expecting and what better excuse do you need to knit tiny things? They have also have yet to be stitched together. I'm looking for the perfect heart shaped buttons too.
You'll find most of the details for these patterns here on Ravelry.
Is anyone else living in a work-in-progress world?
