Resistance is futile!
Here's the Robot Illusion Scarf that I finished a few days ago and should have posted by now. I knitted pretty much all of it while I had the flu so I'm surprised it really has robots on it at all instead of the Nyquil logo.
I like really long scarves but since I was working with a limited amount of yarn this was only 4 ft. long. If I had had enough of the black cotton/ramie (recycled from a thriftstore sweater) I would have done six robots instead of four. I had plenty of the rust yak/merino.
I was much too lazy to take a photo of the scarf dead-on so you don't see the robots.
I was going to add a rust fringe but I might just knit a rust and black hat.
My other project is Body Count Mittens using the casualty numbers from here. I saw that Karen's thinking of doing a set and I couldn't leave well enough alone. I've got some handspun in heathered green and a tan that seems to work pretty well, in an unintentional icky military kind of way. I didn't even consider the Desert Storm color scheme until I had already done the cuff and it was no turning back by that point.
This is how far I got before I ran out of the green, so I'll be spinning up some more in a couple days. I'd better not run out of the tan because I have no idea just what the fiber was and if I have any more of it.
I did get to use my flashy new red stitch markers from my PRGE pal for the first time. They all jiggly, mama!
Where's the cat? I have to blow my nose and I can't find the furry little snotrag.
