knitting ships for pleasure and profit
Knitting's fun isn't it!
Mostly I like to knit things that people can wear, like hats or wardrobes or verrrrryyyyyy small mountains but sometimes it's just fun to be able to knit something a bit less practical.
Norma (my best friend) has asked me to knit some little ships for Captain/ Non Captain (take your pick) Eyepatch to play with. Is it his bath time? Search me!
Now I had a quick look for some patterns but there don't seem to be any (bit of a gap in the market there if you ask me). So I've let my imagination have a bit of a play. I'm rather pleased with my 3 mast armchair special but my fav so far is the giant tennis racket ship...for playing games of giant sea tennis (and who wouldn't want to have a go at that???).
Do you have a ship pattern that you really like? If so I'm prepared to feign interest if you'd like to post it to me.
Take care, hugs and cake!
