This was my favourite project to date; and not as scary as I imagined.
The pattern is available at http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html ; I see there's been a knitalong for it, I'm not surprised, it is very cool.
I was working on this on the underground (subway) once, and had a friendly argument with a guy about why it wasn't a snail; a rare incidence of human interaction on the tube. I also lied and said it was a bet, because I was embarrassed to admit I was such a nerd
Have you ever seen nautiluses swimming? They move through the water with a surprisingly graceful rocking movement.
P.S. I hope it's OK me posting a new thread for this, I'm still a bit confused by the structure of Craftster posts.
