What can I say, really….this won’t be to everyone’s taste. It is certainly not to mine. But we all make sacrifices for the ones we love. 🙂
I saw the pattern on ravelry and thought M might like it, so I have been working on it secretly. But I’m a sensitive woman, so to feel good about it I choose to believe this alien crash-landed on Earth, dying on impact, and his dissection has helped to cure countless diseases.
The pattern, Alien Autopsy, is by Emily Stoneking. This is an intermediate pattern requiring good eyesight and experience working really fiddly little things in the round, i-cord and short rows. It was a challenge and a lot of fun to knit using only scraps from my stash. My only mod was to add a couple more organs to the ‘guts’. The main grey yarn is Hayfield Bonus Aran. I painted a frame that I already had, and purchased the foam core backing board for $4. And he loved it. 🙂
