boy - I'm sweating bullets trying to whip the Spanish Armada pattern into shape. It wasn't a hard knit - but I evidently do a lot more instinctive fudging then I was ever aware I did...and of course it is all coming to light with people beginning to knit the pattern.
*grin* maybe I should have just sat back and glowed in the compliments instead of trying to put the pattern in a shape others could knit it as well...but it's frustrating when person after person asks - where's the pattern? and all you can answer is "in my head"

For several reasons - I got talked into starting (well having started for me) a Yahoo group. It's been "up" under three hours and already over 30 people have signed up.

But a lot closer now, 3/4rths of the Armada is off the needle.

Spanish Armada is being bound off. It's a slow process because it takes 13 stitches to bind off three stitches - and there are aboyt 670 stitches around.

so close - but close doesn't count!
I am on row 147 of 154 rows - in fact, over half done with row 147...
and I just ran out of yarn from the skein I was using.

I'm knitting a Penguin as part of my 2006 Christmas list. (Yes, I know, I'm way way behind)
It's an Urban Commando Penguin. the back, head and wings are in a grey/black/white urban camo colour.

The qoute is bollixed up - so sue me!
Proof-knitting by volunteers underway.
Pattern is definately proofed through row 100 and I *think* I've got it corrected the rest of the way.
