I haven’t posted for a month or so as I have started a parquet stitch shrug which is coming out very well but taking a l-o-n-g time to complete. I estimate I still have a few weeks work ahead of me yet.

While watching the election results last night, I took a break from the slow moving work to take up the challenge set by Stitch London to stitch yourself for a display in the Science Museum, London.  On the event’s page there are links to knitting, crochet and sewing patterns to inspire you but I went with a free form body.  I would like to think I am not that tubby in real life but, other than that, I am happy with how I came out. I did, however, wuss out of making glasses from wire as I originally planned and went for the easier thread and glue option instead.

Deadline for submissions is 26th June 2010.  Grab the chance to immortalise yourself in yarn while you can.
