i just checked in at ravelry, and realised i hadn't updated anything there in a long, long time... two baby cardigans have moved from wip to fo (one almost two months ago), and i have re-awakened a cowichan-style cardigan project for the kiddo, which i set aside sometime before xmas so i could concentrate on the one i made for my husband.
the fronts and backs of "invadin ur space" are done, following the videogame theme, and on the weekend i joined the shoulder seams and added the collar. last night i charted the sleeve pattern. i wanted something a little different from the all-over aliens pattern of the body, so i took my inspiration from this photo i found on wikimedia commons, taken by billy hicks at an amusement arcade in lyme regis. it's a japanese space invaders arcade cabinet, and i charted one of the alien gorilla beasties for the sleeve. not sure yet whether the second sleeve will be a mirror image, or different beastie.
