There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

La Missiles - rockets

Today my country India is celebrating its 61 st Republic day. Agni missile is one of our cherished indigenous defence weapon system that my country is proud of. My salutation to our Republic Day. Hence posting my version in a knitted toy format

This pattern was taken from the net and I follwed as per instructions. Substituted yarn colors as per my wish.
The rocket is about 8 cm in height when made in 8 ply yarn on 3.25 mm [10] needle

Any small amounts of 3-4 colors of different yarns. I used Yardley yarns
a set of 3.25mm double pointed needles
Darning needle for sewing together
Polyster fibrefill for stuffing

Followed instructions as per pattern. rocket consisted of  body- single cone chaped barrel and 3 fins.I positioned the three fins evenly around the rocket. I used fabric painting to write the word 'Agni' as it is one of  Indias military arsenal.
