Ok, the Roll in the Hay socks are progressing nicely. I have got the hang of the pattern! Here is what happens to me a lot in knitting. What at first seems almost impossibly hard to figure out next becomes very simple. I guess maybe that’s life in general huh! So I am just going right along on my sock. Basically it’s a k2 p2 rib with these triangles thrown in for good measure!
Here is something else I am excited about. Stitch London teamed up with London’s Science Museum for this Who am I? project. Crafters are encouraged to knit, crochet or sew a mini version of themselves. Once complete, I am supposed to send it to London where it will be part of an exhibit in the museum. You can read more about it at: http://www.stitchldn.com/stitchyourself.html
So, I finished mine this morning. It’s time for her grand unveiling. I have created “Frazzled Hot Sweating Arkansas Summer Christina”. She is wearing her standard t-shirt, shorts and Birkenstocks. Hair styling is an impossibility, so she has made an attempt to pull it back into a ponytail.
Now I have to mail her to London. This makes me kind of sad. However, I bet it is lots lots cooler in London and not as humid. She’ll probably be very happy that I sent her!
Here she is! (please don’t make fun of her funny left arm. She’s really sensitive about it.)
