Skeleton accrues

For the record: Mondays are being a Good Thing around here:

The Crohn’s Lite is much improved. The yank-ees, ditto.

The carry-around lace scarf project of three weeks actually got finished and is blocking.

I wanted to say the baby sweater is done, but it’s a dozen 99-stitch rows shy; the wrist is carping, there’s a tunnel ahead, and I’m stopping the train under icy conditions.

And for anyone who didn’t see the looks-real knit skeleton yet, it is really, really cool.  Very Deb-bone-air.  The artist’s site for it is here; scroll down to see the intense level of detail he put into it. Happy almost-Halloween!

Yay for getting things done, and nearly done. Watch out for those carping tunnels, I know how hard they can be to navigate! And why not knitted bonz? I seem to remember several scriptures which say WE were knitted together…

Thanks for linking to that skeleton! I’d love to see it close up! Wow!

I just sent that link to a friend with a comment that I’m struggling to get the gauge right on a hat and can’t imaging creating an entire human-shaped skull!

Wow! But also sort of creepy.

I love that skeleton! I wish there were a pattern for it; it would be such fun to put one in the hallway on Hallowe’en!
Glad you’re feeling mostly good too — except for the tunnels. Take care of them!

that skeleton is amazing!! (now if you could just whip up some soft tunnels, you’d be good!) take care of yourself

That skeleton is INCREDIBLE! How one could even conceive of it is inconceivable to me. And no, no carping tunnels!

I want one. I really, really want one — and I have no CLUE how he did it!

However, I remember attending a Bauhaus exhibit at the Pasadena Art Museum (before it became the Norton Simon; that dates ME), and there was a marvelous knitted environment; a room-sized womb-shaped cave that one could crawl into and occupy.

Of course, we couldn’t crawl in, but it was massive and weirdly beautiful.

I still want the skeleton.

I did see that skeleton, all I can say is that must have been a huge amount of time and calcualtions to do it!!! Are pictures coming of the scarf?

I bet that artist could do amazing things with an Aran style sweater.

Glad to hear the physical issues are easing. I hope the rest of the week has gone well (and now I’ll keep trying to catch up on my post reading and find out.).
