Just a quick post to share with you the ground-breaking new item I knitted up last night.....
Are you ready?
OK, then. I give you:
Obviously, it may have been better if I'd waited until I could have sourced yarn in a blonder shade..... but I was just TOO EXCITED about my new project to wait, so I knitted it with whatever I could find.
It's going to be the key piece in my forthcoming "Instant Whiskers" collection, and I think it's pretty snazzy, even with the colour-mismatch. I'll be quite the knittist-about-town with this strapped to my chops.
....... OK, OK, that last bit may have been a bit of a fib. You don't need to worry that I've finally gone right off my trolley.
I have, in fact, knitted this for a sane(ish) reason: I'm putting together a Viking costume, and felt that a beard was a key component. Because what self-respecting Norseman would be seen dead at a party without the adornment of some impressive face-furniture? None! Exactly. So, there you go: perfectly sane, after all.
Now, does anyone know where I can get a knitting pattern for an axe......? ;o)
