A week or two after Rhinebeck, my computer turned against me. I had been dual-booting WinXP and Ubuntu off different drives, decided to reformat the Windows drive so each OS could have its own partition on it, and that's when things went terribly, horribly wrong. Tears were shed, curses were uttered, and through it all, David was a beacon of sanity. (He probably just spit coffee all over his keyboard at that.) In thanks, and because it looked so darned cute, I knit Knitty's "Pasha" for him.
I don't remember what the black yarn is. I got it several years ago for the purpose of darning my then-favorite pair of toe socks. The white is Plymouth Encore D.K. and the orange is Shepherd Baby Wool 4 Ply. Pasha (or Evisceron the Harbinger of DOOM, as I believe he's now called) was knit on US#1 needles, and gosh darn it, I want to see if I can knit the next one in the round in as few pieces as possible, because seaming the little beast was a lot of work.
Linux. It's a good thing.
