I haven't posted for *ages*, and was recently reminded that I really should. So -- I haven't been knitting much lately following some pretty dramatic happenings in my life, which mean I don't have a lot of spare time lately. That and forgetting to take pictures of things.
I have done some stuff though:
- I made a collection of rockets for a friend's baby, who was born 50 years and a day after mankind first made it to space. There was a US Saturn 5, the USSR's Soyuz rocket, and the ESA's Arianne. The Saturn 5 was the hardest to do, because there's so little distinctive shaping to it. But I forgot to take pictures, and hopefully (because all good baby toys should be) they'll've been heavily mauled by now and not too photogenic.
- Something decidedly NSF-blog-posting for (the awesome) Kate J. I may put photos on Ravelry at some point, where there's a little more privacy. I'd quite like to write a pattern for that one too.
- The Little Prince! I read the Little Prince recently(-ish), and was very struck by one of the pictures, in which he's wearing this very flamboyant outfit, so I wanted to knit that. I've got just about all the pieces done, but the sewing up is going to be a pain, so I've been putting it off. I love how that shaping turned out, which is part of why I don't want to rush sewing up.
So yes, that's me. I'm not likely to have much to post for a while, but I will try to write something here from time to time. Hope you've all had a good summer!
