Happy Pi Day!
To-day's Savage Chickens cartoon is suitably festive. ^_^
In other news, I finished the bobble rows on my knit Dalek. Hurrah! \o/ I won't have to bobble again until the "eye" bobbles (the bumpy things at the top of a Dalek that blink when it talks--what are they called?). I'll definitely be posting pictures in the next few days. I also picked up my tea cosy last night after neglecting it for quite a while--it's amazing how easy the decreases seem since I've been working on the Dalek (the Dalek pattern calls for multiple decreases nearly every other row). ^_^
Speaking of things for the Good vs Evil KAL of Awesome, I may have found a possible Charley scarf! ^_^ It's called "Misty Garden" from the Scarf Style book by Pam Allen. A sample picture can be found here (if you type in "Misty Garden scarf" into your favourite search engine on "images" there are many more pictures in different colourways). It's lovely, but it appears to be lace--one more knitting skill to add, I suppose! I'll probably be posting to who_knits, zagreuswaits, and halfhumandoctor for colourway suggestions.
I'm thinking of making Rose's Doomsday mitts using KnitPicks Swish DK in Bordeaux--it looks like the perfect colour (I also love the "Cornflower" colour--though I've always thought it was "cornflower blue," not lavender). To learn cables, though, I think I might try Fetching in Swish Worsted Clematis Heather. (I love heathers and tweeds!)
And I'm off to continue the practice texture swatch for my cuddly TARDIS.
