I’m attempting an argyle for the first time. Oh my god, it’s a brain breaker! Just when you think you’ve got it going ok and you’ve figured it all out, you notice that you did one wrong stitch half a row back and you have to decide whether to rip it back out or not.

Very typically of me, I don’t have a pattern, I found some arglyes on the internet and drew the pattern on a piece of paper, I’ve been working off that. It’s very hard to start, but as the knitting grows the arglye is easier to see and thus easier to continue.

But getting cocky is dangerous, and it’s really quite labour intensive, so it’s a slow process.

Instead, let me show you some photos of the latest finger puppets I’ve made. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Dame Judi Dench and Kevin Spacey to the stage…

This is Dame Judi Dench, from the black and white film The Cherry Orchard

This is photo she is based on

And Kevin Spacey:

Here is Kevin on set for The Iceman Cometh:

These two puppets have been created for Terrible Comfort’s Expression’s on Modern Drama which can be found on Youtube here

Go and check it out!
