Too cute, indeed!
@salmonmac : Yes, it is great that I can borrow a book like this in our library, but part of the reason why it has such a collection is the fact that last spring about 6 local libraries closed (budget cuts) and their best books were brought to this one central library... It's better than nothing, but compared to what we had - I can't be happy about it, yet.
As for the next project, I went for a small knitted pencil
. Perfect for knitting while watching TV. Or so I thought for I accidentally forgot a row of increases and realized it was too thin. But then again, this would be more like a 'real' pencil, so I finished it and then tried my hand at a new one - this time strictly following the pattern (and missing some of the dialogue).
Next, I wanted to make a tiny TV. But to be honest, I ain't got the confidence for it yet
. I know I just have to do it, but I'm dreading the part where I need to pick up stitches... I'll get there
But first I made this flying saucer
, including the mini alien from ravelry which isn't in the book.
Somehow it reminds me of KingKong
The saucer went OK, though I miscounted my increases a bit, so they're irregular. And next time I need to try even harder to prevent the strand behind the work from having the wrong tension. It is mostly too tight, though I really tried to keep it in line with the work itself.
