    Cute. Needs more substantial lyrics, but still cute. I, too, love the original 500.

    Some more progress:



    I am on strike from packing tonight.

    So cool! Can't wait to see what it looks like!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Squirt has a new home in Newark. I just got more update pics today, in fact. He likes to "hide" under the covers, giving his new dad a mild scare. He's happy, I can tell.

    Here are a couple more pictures. I have the peristome, lid and alas done. I'm adding a leaf-ish strap to carry it around with. I'll finish that easily during lunch and breaks tomorrow, and then I'll felt it. Yay!








    It's all loosey goosey right now, you have to use some imagination to see what it should* look like after its shrunk.
    *Felting is an art, not a science. Anything can happen, and I'm not experienced enough to KNOW what will happen when I do what I did and will do. All I know for sure is that 1) it will shrink and 2) it will loose all stitch texture. I took very careful notes this time, though, so I can replicate it.

    You dare to knit the pitcher of the not-so-endangered Nepenthes ampullaria? Oh, what audacity do the members of this forum have.
    Good job, though! I'd love to get a Nepenthes ampullaria plant, although your knitting wouldn't be a bad substitute!

    I dare not knit the Nep. ampullaria. I do dare crochet the crafty carry-all. It is, after all, my favorite Nepenthes species, and frequently my favorite CP.


    It's going to be, hopefully, a project bag; something to carry a knitting/crocheting WIP around in without it getting dirty, messed up, lost or jumbled about in your purse.


    Planter, if you want to see some real audacity, search for Nepenthes + rice + ketupat. And, yes, I've brought this savage dish to a potluck at a certain famous book-writer's potluck in his CA garden, to be enjoyed by all attending. Including the host.

    Okay, so you do not dare knit the not-so-endangered Nepenthes ampullaria. You DO dare to CROCHET the not-so-endangered Nepenthes ampullaria. Got it.
    I guess now you won't have to worry about yarn bugs.
