A quick knit and a short post for my FO this week.
For some reason I felt the urge to knit a trilobite, the pattern has been in my favourites for ages and it was a good way to use up a small ball of the 2kg of undyed aran yarn I have been working through. I cast in in spite of all the WIPs that would like some attention.
In a short while I had this:
Pattern: Knit trilobite by Madeline Poirier
Yarn: Wendy Traditional aran, undyed
Needles: 2.5m dpns
Mods: Worked the antennae as a short I cord using the yarn tail after kitchenering rather than a crochet chain sewn on.
I think this would have been easier on 3mm needles, it was hard work on 2.5mm, very tight stitches are not easy to make.
A nice easy pattern, a little fiddly at first but a very cute finished object. A very fast knit too. He has been sitting on my spinning wheel, but I think he would be good to hide in random places around the house.
I do have a full sized FO to share, but no photos yet. Maybe next week.
