WIP Wednesday - Here Be Dragons
|Well, almost-dragons, anyway.|
The Emerald is all assembled and just waiting for his eyes to be embroidered. I'm pretty happy with him. The Sapphire pieces are to the
Here we have a very wrinkled, unblocked Chevron Scarf. This has been my stuff-it-in-my-purse knitting for a while now, including while sitting in line for Order of the Phoenix and part of while I was waiting for Deathly Hallows to come out last Friday. It's made a lot more progress than I had realized. I have another skein of each color, and I'm still debating whether I will use them or not. I'll see where it is when I finish these two.
Pardon the crappy-ass blurry picture of the Mystery Stole. This is what happens when Kris is busy at work and I feel guilty asking him to take pictures for me. (although last week's picture was all me!) Well, that combined with the fact that we have houseguests and I didn't want to wake them up by digging out one of Kris's tripods. I'm currently ready to start row 263, almost to the end of Chart E. I'm going to do the extra repeat to lengthen it, though, so I'll be doing that bubble/flower pattern for a while yet.
You may have noticed these in the background of the scarf and stole pictures. What are they? They are my new Monkey Toes sock bags! I ordered them from Momma-Monkey's Etsy shop (Hey, looks like she's put up some new stuff. Awesome!), and they came last week. I'm using the one on the left (in the "Fifi" print) for the Chevron scarf, and the set on the right (part of the Menagerie collection, which also included some stitch markers and some gorgeous handspun sock yarn) for my Mystery Stole. The notions bag is perfect for my beads, and crochet hook, and post-its.
The only drawback I can see to these bags? They're kind of addictive. I totally want another one. Or two. And I might talk to her about making one for the two-at-once sock folk...
Oh, well. I probably won't see you again before Friday (See about re: houseguests), so have a good one!
