The fabulous Deadly Knitshade wrote a knitting pattern, so I figured, how hard could it be to make? Fiddly perhaps, but easier than a full-size garment.
Well actually no, not entirely wrong. I mean, there’s really nothing that difficult about it and the pattern is very good and then there’s loads of space for you to make it your own. But it’s so small. And fiddly. And needs so many little bits and ends to weave in and-
Ok enough. Cos I know all you really want to see is how it turned out….
Ironically, as in life, I look at Mini-Me and all I see are the things wrong with her. Or rather not-quite-right about her.
Firstly, she doesn’t really look like me. Well I suppose the hair helps. And the gangly limbs are definitely me. The clothing is made up of yarn with which I have knitted myself things, but it’s not an actual outfit I own. The top is also a bit rubbish and she has no shoes. The headphones kind of look like an alice band. And the microphone could be an ice cream or a pencil, but hey, you get the idea, right? On the plus side, the grey jeans are pretty accurate.
So I shall stop moaning, and cursing, and gnashing my teeth (isn’t gnashing a great word?) and try to enjoy my mini-podcaster.
Whether she’s having a sit-down after one gin too many:
