SCARY - Petrochemical Poodle Poncho
hey, check out this thing i made last weekend! how's that to start off your Hallowe'ek? pretty SCARY, eh? let me tell you the whole SCARY story ... i had a perverse desire to knit with some halucious pink eyelash last week, and on saturday i gave in & made a poncho for Patia, the only 2 year old girl child i know well enough to escort on a date to the cadbury chocolate factory this hallowe'en. the thing feels like barbie hair and looks like a molested a flamingo - perfect for a 2 year old! she'll LURV it.
how to make your own eyelash abomination:
4 balls estelle shimmer in hot pink, 2 strands held together, 1 ball estelle shimmer in pale pink, knitted on 8mm/40cm circular needles - used the poncho pattern i posted previously on the site & crocheted a couple rows of double crochet around the neck for the collar. i think i cast on 32 sts with 2 strands held together, but i'm not sure, i'm repressing the memory.
i'd like to say that this is strong evidence that one should not play games with nature, but there isn't anything natural about this petro-chemical concoction, so i won't me able to make the frankenstein analogy. still, there is something very island of Dr. Moreau about it. I think it may be similar to Mr Burns from a Simpsons Hallowe'en special.
