A Layz-about Rainy Day

Standard

Not Very Much Happened today to be quite honest. It rained so that put a plug in any outdoor plans and the rain makes me feel trapped indoors so that leaves only one thing to do today, Knit. I finally got started on my August Designers Challenge (I’m going with the pidgeon theme but it might not be quite what you expect :-)) I knit about three inches of the leg on my Bowie suit which, I don’t believe I’ve told you about yet and theres no time like the present!

David Bowie is one of my absolute favorite Pop singers (He’s right up there with The Beatles). In the 70’s he had an album and tour and show called ‘Ziggy Stardust’. He dressed up in insane costumes and makeup and his red mullet. It had come to my attention that one of my favorite costumes he wore was knit! Granted it was a giant one armed one legged unitard almost entirely covered with stripes of different patterns of intarsia but thats hardly important! I went out and got the yarn I would need and sat down and started knitting, I tyhought the leg would be the best place to start considering theres only one and it’s basically a tube until you reach the knee…I was wrong.

Here’s a picture that might help you understand my difficulties:

I have reached the part of the leg where the picture is cut off…I gave up on the yellow intarsia circles.

Ah well, slow and steady wins the race 🙂

For good luck/carma purposes I shall give you another David Bowie Song today, It’s called Ashes to Ashes and the music video is really odd but really funny too…unintentionally of course 🙂
