Notes

20080908 Using the EXTERMIKNIT! pattern photos as an inspiration.

20080914 Frogged and restarted. Now using a photo of a Dalek and MS Excel to figure out how many stitches I need to begin the pattern I want to use for the lower body.

Knitting the gray with two strands of the red heart soft.

Learned bobbles! Bobbling along nicely, adding a strand of the moonlight mohair to each bobble.

20080928 Need to weave in an end or two and take some photos and it’ll be done.

20081001 It’s done! I’m not marking it complete and adding photos until it’s mailed. Where’s a box. I need a box. Rummage rummage

I used a button for the “eye”, and one shaped like a bee for my own general amusement. The appendages have pipe cleaners in them, and the bottom was stiffened with a piece of plastic canvas. I also added a small weight inside it to keep it from easily tipping over.
