Caprica Six Bag

Number Six: Love isn’t about sex, Gaius.

Dr. Gaius Baltar: There’s an enlightened point of view.

Number Six: I’ve been thinking. And as far as I’m concerned, you can have any woman you want. But always remember… I have your heart.

Baltar: Yes, of course you do.

Number Six: I can always rip it out of your chest if I need to.

The Caprica Six Bag, for human hearts.

Knitting chart over here, for the basestars. I kept a record of the bag base, up to the flap… then I stopped writing down what I was doing when I made the cylon headflap… I might be able to come up with it if anyone else wants to give this pattern a go. The colorwork was a beast.

Caprica 6 Bag for the ravelry.com BSG FPB game

I never felted (fulled) anything before, so I jumped in feet first and did a big complicated color swapping bag for the Battlestar Galactica Fleet Power Battle at ravelry.com.
I started in the beginning of July and have worked on it for two rounds of the game. Here’s the progress in photos…

 

 

So, hopefully this weekend I’ll get the strap done and toss it in the washer to shrink it. It’s been a lot of work… really hoping the washer doesn’t chew this up and spit it out.

The chart I used to do the basestars, and two others I threw together ‘cuz it might be helpful for someone else are here. I love the idea that the basestars make a nice geometric pattern all lined up like that, I’d like to see what other people might do with it.
