This is purely because I finally managed to pick up the relatively rare 1997 edition of the Godspeed You! Black Emperor album F♯a♯∞ and it arrived Friday just gone. It comes with the train crushed penny etc. I’m pretty chuffed that this is now in my possession, as is Lemmy by the looks of it.
I didn’t get as many hats as I wanted to do for The Big Knit but I did some (well 5) and that’s all that matters in the end. Since I’ve started knitting with some form of regularity I’ve noticed that compared to most I’m a really slow knitter. I’m wondering if speed is something that comes with experience or is this it. I used double pointed needles for the first time whilst knitting one of the hats as an experiment and although fiddly to do, makes the finished object look a lot more “professional” in my opinion. The pink hat shown below was my favourite.
My cat Lemmy.
Whilst on the same subject I stumbled across this video by a French band called Trichot Machine (which is knitting machine in French I do believe) on YouTube. It’s made entirely from knitted frames (I can make out around 718 at the end). I bet it took an absolute age to make.
