I have finally finished my most favourite knitting project ever.
This is Phil, named after a friend’s continuous line of hermit crabs named Phil. The pattern is Hansi Singh’s Hermit Crab, and the yarn is Bernat Satin in Silk, Lavender, Teal and Crimson.
This was a super tricky pattern with lots of Kitchener Stitch, short rows and other funky things. And, to be totally honest, I set it aside for a while (umm, like a year and a half) because I was a little frustrated. But, after only about a days more work I was able to get him all put together. I even added pipe cleaners to all his limbs so he is poseable.
And, goodness, does it ever feel good to have him done! I think he looks great and I feel really accomplished for managing to pull it off! I’m also so happy to have an old UFO finished. Maybe I should dig out another old project to work on.
