I had Halloween off from work, so, while Little Miss napped, I finished clue #3 of Secret of the Stole. I seem to be falling farther and farther behind. And I’m okay with that.
I have no idea what the theme is. For a while, I thought the large motifs might be flowers, and then someone said they looked like spiders, and that’s all I could see for a while. And that little X at the top looks sort of like, well, one of those guys who waves in the airplanes at the gate. I’m pretty sure that’s not it.
Last week, something very bad happened to my lovely MacBook, and the widget that was counting down the days until Christmas Eve went with it. (Since my iBook is still running Panther, there are no widgets on that one.) But even without the clock, I know there’s not much time left, so all crafting efforts are currently focused on one thing:
That’s “Checking His List”, as of two weeks ago. Since then, I’ve finished the red portion of the coat and started on the trim. I might manage to finish this stocking yet.
That’s the Colonial Williamsburg Pinwheel Baby Blanket, all done and washed and dried and laid out and sat upon by the cat and brushed off and taken away from the cat and laid out again.
I put a bit of a rush on it early in the week so I could take it to a meeting on Wednesday to show the folks who might want to purchase it at next month’s fundraiser.
Pattern: Genia Planck’s Round or Pinwheel Baby Blanket, a KnitList pattern I found through Ravelry.
Yarn: Lion Brand Homespun in Colonial and Williamsburg, a bit less than one skein of each.
Needles: Denise Interchangeables, size US10.5, with a cord that just kept getting longer
New Technique(s): I used the Lighter Circular Beginning (scroll down) to cast on.
Since I was pushing to finish the baby blanket, I thought I was going to fall way behind on Secret of the Stole, but I finished Clue 2 this morning while Little Miss was napping.
The picture quality isn’t very good. The sun was a little too bright for the light yarn on the white blanket. I’ll get a better one after I finish clue #3, which I’ve just printed out.
