I'm pattern-testing this week, which is really kind of exciting. The above---which currently looks like a lovely and current-weather-appropriate raindrop sculpture---is going to be a rainbow rocketship, designed by Unforth and viewable as a finished product in a less ridiculous colour scheme over at her blog.
I'm not always the most diligent direction-follower, I tend to take patterns as a suggestion and resize or change elements around or, uh, not pay terribly close attention to my exact stitch count as long as it looks okay... So it's an interesting experience for me to be reading the pattern closely, following it more carefully, and considering how it might read/work to someone with less crocheting experience. (This pattern is awesome so far, well-written and easy to follow and I love the way the shaping worked up. It's both elegant and weirdly cuddly at the same time, somehow.)
And my currently on hold for pressing rocketship business project, this fish-and-sushi toy, which gets sewn together so that the fish can be tucked into the sushi roll or the sushi roll tucked into the fish. (I got impatient with wondering if this process would actually work or not and gave it a test baste-together the other night and it was a success! It wasn't easy to flip it back and forth, but it did work. So now the fish just needs his fins and stuff and then it can be sewn together for real, after which point I may try to auction it off for earthquake/tsunami relief for Japan.)
