*cough* *gasp* Aaaaaaah! KNITTY!

If you’re a cross-crafter, like I am, you probably already know that the new Knitty is up. And it looks fabulous! Topi looks tight, Reid is precious, and does anyone else love, Love, LOVE Nagano Sakura?

What really has me breathless, though, is this:


Allow me to provide a little zoom action for you:


Do you know what that is? That is a nautiloid.

I love it. I want it. I have to have it. You probably have never guessed this about me, but I love paleontology. I seriously considered it as a career choice into my teenage years. And forget T-rexes and brontosaurus, I was in love with the smaller, the older, and the more weird. I mean, I told people that my favorite bird was the Archaeopteryx until I was twelve. Knitting myself a nautiloid would be perfection. Of course, I seriously doubt that I currently possess the knitting expertise to do it. If I’m feeling particularly lazy in that department, I may just create a crocheted version. Too bad she didn’t pair it with a trilobite

😯 I should totally do that!

And in other news, sometime after my last post and before this one, my ticker passed 50,000 hits. I’m famous!

    I can’t knit or crochet to save my life, but I keep coming across these amazing knitted and crocheted sculptures. This makes me wish I could knit so I could have a cuddly nautilus, too.

    Thanks for posting about this (I found you via Technorati) — I do hope you knit a trilobite someday! That would be extremely cool.
