Okay, so project Gir is being abandoned for now.
I just tried to finish him after about 3 months of hibernation, and I’m just not feeling the vibes anymore. Originally, he was going to be a gift to a high school friend who absolutely loves Invader Zim, but I think I also messed up on the first leg and there’s no way to get stuffing in there! The friend’s birthday is in November, so I still have time to either restart and use my learning to make Gir number 2 better, or I think up something else that will be loved as much. Oh well.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft and Lion Brand Woolease, both under one ball each.
Pattern: Knit Robot by johnny’s stew.
Comments: The blue block in the middle was my first try at intarsia, only about 2 weeks after I first started knitting again! I think I did pretty well, no huge gaps in the fabric or anything.
Final Result: ABANDONED!
