It’s been a while since I updated what I have been up to in the wide world of crafting I live in.
I’m hoping to get a fingering yarn once I ply it with some green I have not yet started to spin.
I have also been pondering grabbing some black yarn and creating my first three ply yarn, with green, purple, and black. Seems my mind is on a Clown Prince of Crime. Or you know people who lose control and turn into giant green rage monsters (I’m not excited for the Avengers, not at all).
I had someone ask me a question on etsy just as I started pondering the same. Why don’t I have any Tardis stitch markers?
And the answer to that is I do now! Also I am a bit in love at how well this picture came out. Sunlight in the still in progress craft office is a wonder. And while I was working on those I pulled out these beads that once upon a time would have become a pandorica. Instead they became Pandora’s box.
And of course. Knitting:
I finished my dissertation. At around 10pm on the 30th for Nerd Wars. I have about a dozen things I want to change, From yarn to pattern repeats. But I have the start of a pattern and I shall work from there. And you know blocking… that does mean I have 2 complete shawls for 2012. 12 in 2012? Not sure yet.
The Spider-man baby blanket has grown a lot. And of course I’m carrying the blanket around in a Spiderman tote bag. What else would I carry it in?
I have joined in Rock & Purl’s sock KAL and have donated a prize. A set of stitch markers. Now I just have to find more than 1 dpn in the right size and I will even be able to cast on. Whistles. Go join!
Also I have cast on Bigger on the Inside Of course I have. A tardis shawl? Done. The fact that I had the right yarn in my stash is extra amusing. Though there is a chance I will run short as I made gloves from that yarn as well.
I should wander off to find all the other’s knitting this shawl as well, and see how badly I may run out of yarn. But, I had to start this and there was nothing to do but jump in and shout Geronimo!
