late goal on penalty kicks
posted by soe 5:36 pm

kwc logoThe tank is complete, and, if I do say so myself, it looks very nice.

I did not quite finish before the end of the game, despite France’s attempt to keep me in the game by taking the World Cup to penalty kicks. But the tank was came off the needles as Italy hoisted the cup aloft.

Many thanks to Yarn Monkey for hosting the cup and encouraging me to take on a project that taught me a couple knew skills (even if I hope never to need to use the provisional cast-on again).

Oooh I think you and the tank look wonderful! And good for you having the gusto to tackle a project that would demand you learn new techniques.

Yeah! Great job and it looks beautiful. Can’t wait to see it in person.

Thanks for all the compliments. The yarn is Rowan summer tweed in “Exotic” and the pattern is “Waterlilies” from Interweave Knits Spring 2006 issue. It was my first object from a knitting magazine, but it won’t be my last.
