Whoa. I know I've not posted for an age, but I've been in a self-enforced exile as I put aside all blog-posting, housework and general life in a bid to keep up with the MKAL! (That's Mystery Knit Along, to the un-ravelrised.) I finally finished it a few days after the deadline (so I lose), but I'm back in the real world now. It was fun, but you don't get pictures until after Christmas. ;-)
Before the MKAL begun, I started things rolling on our house-decorating by moving my sewing room 8ft in the downwards direction: (0, 0, -8)ft for those tagging along with this blog for the maths. The living room looks much better for the addition of sewing and wool gubbins, but I'm still working on child-proofing it. The ex-sewing room will be painted this weekend.
In addition to the sewing room moving, I speedily finished most of Hello Chameleon except his eyes. I'm writing up the pattern with LaTeX because I'm a massive geek. I'll probably get the pattern tested as soon as his limbs are attached and I've finished typing it all up, then I'm thinking of offering it for sale. I also took some pictures to do a few crochet how-tos, which should help people follow along with the non-standard way I construct my crochet toys.
Right now I'm making a crochet turnip (that's right), and a bunch more fenland veggies for a friend. The patterns will probably be free unless I'm unexpectedly delighted with the results. Turnip is pretty simple so far, but it's always a joy to make purple vegetables.
Right, that's all for now, and I'm sorry for the lack of pictures. I promise more soon, perhaps when Hello Turnip is complete! ;-)
