My Sins:

February 22, 2010

Mea Culpa! I have been a bad, bad man! I’ve not blogged for far too long and I’ve let other, non-knitting concerns distract me from my projects.

But! I do have achievements to crow over. Firstly, I’ve de-stashed.  My room used to contain a pink silicone horse feeder full of cheap acrylic DK and pastel 2-ply (euch). I’ve salvaged the best and most expensive yarn (not always the same thing) and gifted/dumped the rest onto a burgeoniing knitter down the road.

In a slightly more duplicitous move, I’ve donated all my spare or mismatched needles. I’m using the sudden lack of needles as an excuse to buy myself some lovely bamboo ones.  Not what the government intended my benefits to cover, I’m sure, but whatever.

Secondly, I’ve almost finished my Octopus Bag.  I’m sending the first half of the bagtopus pattern out to the test knitters today and the prototype should be with it’s new owner very soon. Here are some advanced previews of my first draft.

Bagtopus politely doesn't mention how untidy my room is.

Bagtopus admires the window and curses the god who made him with only two legs.

Thirdly, I’ve almost finished my first free pattern, a pair off 4-ply st-st briefs that I’ve had to develop as I work out the pattern for the tentacle-porn Octopants I mentioned in the last post. I’ve arranged the photographer for March. So expect indecency.

My plans for the coming week are pretty simple. I’m going to sort out housing (I’m being made homeless, not fun) and benefits, apply for some jobs (if I can find any) and knit some journal/bible covers for the books in my bag. I’m also helping my friend Kate get onto Facebook. Hi Kate!

All simple, hopefully all pleasent. PEACE OUT!

    I have some sad news related to a previous topic. I had to plant a pansy today at a government location. I am sickened and saddened, and yet, I know that it is more commonplace than we care to admit. I was not able to get a picture, but I thought you might want to know.

      This makes me so sad. But I’m glad you planted the pansy. It’s a wonderful act of counter-hate. Subversive. Maybe you should tell Paul Harfleet, I’m sure he’d love to see how his project is inspiring people. Pansy Project Main Page

        Unfortunately, the website isn’t working anymore. The domain name has expired.
