The VW Bug Cozy
So yesterday, my friends Julie and Andy and I traipsed on out to the state fairgrounds to go to Winterfair and see the results of the handiwork of the Extreme Knitting Team. The vw bug cozy came out great I think. Here's a taste:
My only disappointment is that they left me out of the credits in the program! I'm a little irked by that. I think it must have been because I dropped off my piece early. Oh well, nothing to be done about it now I suppose. I haven't yet seen the Weekender article, but I expect they used the same list.
All in all though, I didn't really do this for fame, but for the challenge of seeing if I could knit a piece to someone else's spec. And it worked.
(Is it ironic that I just posted about not looking for fame in my blog? Discuss.)
Here's a photo of me with the ass-end of the car. I did the trunk, as you may recall from my frustrated posts of a couple of months ago. Another local Stich n' Bitcher, Aunt Gerry's Yarn Spinnings, did those awesome fuzzy dice.
See, I really do wear the funky hat. Being at an art/craft fair led me to want to dress like an artist. Or something.
More photos of the cozy.
Winterfair was cool--and productive: I got several gifts while there. I also ran into someone I used to work with who is now a glass artist, and a woman who did really cool funky scarves, who I enjoyed chatting with about knitting. Such fun. Maybe someday I'll be an exhibitor.
