WIP Wednesday: Close encounters?

The brown blob I showed off last week now has the beginning of a sleeve. It's not actually capable of standing up on its own; I put an upside-down water glass inside.

And then I thought it looked a bit like Devil's Tower writ small. And I was amused. And then I got the theme from Close Encounters of the Third Kind stuck in my head. And I decided to share my amusement with the internet, and a blog post was born. What do you think, denizens of the internet?

  1. I think that's a pretty good likeness, and also very amusing. And I only hate you a little bit for getting the Close Encounter theme stuck in *my* head!

  6. What monuments will the rest of the sweater look like? Perhaps it could be a tour of the national wonders? (okay, it could just be a sweater and that will be lovely, too.)

  7. I just saw a little birthday cake icon by your name in one of the Ravelry Blog Hub discussions -- I hope your birthday was terrific!
