Need to make for art project
2/11/09 - UGH! I had ambitions of finishing this tonight, but that ended when I had to try three times to pick up the stupid sts for the underbelly from this obnoxious garter selvedge. What they don’t tell you in the instructions is that you’re picking up from the BOTTOM selvedge (when k-side down, head to the right). I was picking up from the top, because that’s what it looked like in the picture. Grr… I need mindless knitting to calm my frustration.
4/11/09 - I’ve started the process of grafting the thing together and stuff, and *gasp* Nessie has taken shape. It went from a deformed pile of flat knit to a sea monster in a few minutes! (well, grafting’s not done yet, but the transformation is still remarkable)
8/11/09 - Um, well, the left-back flipper is backwards, but I don’t really care considering this thing is going to be demolished in three days anyway… I-corded the horns. Mattress stitch is a [insert profanity here]. The eyes make it cute, but I still can’t wait to dismantle the thing!
