some sneaky side projects

Hey, so since I last wrote anything I got a new temp job, which involves googly moogly eyes. It has been kind of inspiring, kind of awful, and kind of a time suck, so I haven't had chance to do much making.


I have done a few bits and bobs, which I want to post here because it makes a change (to me) from the drudgery of the knitted drawing. Oh, a square. Oh, look, another square. What next? Oh... a square.

Sooo, without further ado, I introduce to you... The Banana Sock.

It's a commission for Richelle. It's supposed to protect her banana from bashin' and bangin' about when she goes to work. As it's knitted, though, I doubt it will protect anything from anything else. At least it looks wicked. Here it is in action:

Eep, sexy! And kind of disgusting! I love it. I might make one for myself. Actually no, I don't think I can ever be cool enough to sit in the brew room and nonchalantly remove a banana from one of these things.

So that's that.

I kind of stopped doing any knitted drawingness so I could do some other stuff for a bit, but I managed to get halfway up square 12. I am going to show you it, because I'm super proud of myself for this one.

Finger finger finger!

A close up:

Mmm! I am clever.

Finally, I'm working on a little something for Bear. I don't want to give too much away because I've only finished some of it and I want to display all of it in its miraculous completeness, but here's a little corner.

Can you tell what it is yet? Rubbish photo, I know, I'm just trying to get used to the crappy macro function on my new camera. My old one was loads better, whine whine. That'll teach me to stand on it.

Right-o, that's me done for another week, like. Ta-raaaa.
