there has been knitting. i've just been so busy, i havent updated anything. Right now, everything is babies. A lot of the knitting has been baby knitting. I did a baby sweater, and a baby hat/booties, but i totally forgot to keep pictures of them. doh! I also finished Dan's scarf, but again, no fucking pictures. I suck. But I did make this:
yarn: vintage acrylic from the ebay mistake--the yellow yarn actually had the Amoco gas sign on the ball band, speaking of petroleum products!
needles: size 5 US dpns and 16" circular
notes: this was fun to make, but the drumsticks were very fiddly, and i had to figure out the reverse shaping for the right side, because the chart was only provided for the left but it all worked out just fine.
Actually, I'm surprised how well it worked out. It's probably the best thing that I've made so far. I hope the baby's mom likes it. It's so funny. Here's a side view:
The drumsticks are kind of heavy. I hope it fits...
Next up, I finish my third sweater! And this one, I think I can actually wear as the pattern intended. YIPPEE!
