What I've been knitting away on is The Blue Thing. I've now done the whole body (about 400 meters knitted up) -- now I just have to think of edgings. I'm quite pleased that the armholes don't gape too much; we'll see what happens when I get a bit of ribbing around them. I had a border around the bottom for a while but it looked like a very bad, very short tutu, so I took it off! (Almost 100 more meters of knitting, ripped!) I don't like the curl, so I shall make a not-very-pulling-in rib, knit downwards. I have to get a needle... 7 mm circ, long. A trip to the yarn shop is in order.
I also need to buy a pair of skates, but I doubt I can get both things on the same trip!
And, an arty picture of some tree bark, just for fun.
