Since I can't show any of my current knitting, here are a few of my favorite things from Other People this week. First is photophilic Jen's version of my Neiman pattern, only with SPACE INVADERS. I can't get over it... the fact that only one arm is patterned, the intricacy of the little guys, the fact that it's made in the same colors as the original but makes a very different impression. WOW.
Two other favorite sweaters, both of which have patterns available now:
Oh, Grellow. I hope I find the time to make one of these for myself this fall.
Whoa. I actually got the yarn for this one. I wonder when I will find the time to knit it.
And something else: New Tattoos! Chad at Fat Ram's Pumpkin Tattoo is the artist. I got some color done this past weekend and it's really coming together... a first look:
Side and front view... one of those little yellow stars was my very first tattoo, gotten one day after I turned 18.
Side and back view... the tattoo on the far left is the name of the Sumerian goddess Inanna, goddess of love and war, gotten during my Assyriologist days. So far so good!
