Realistic Goals vs. My Goals
So I had goals, to finish all the projects I was working on by the first, barring that finishing the ones I needed to finish by the first. The former, I gave a good try and may be able to finish 3/4. The latter was done with a couple days to spare.
I finished the Dalek a couple weeks ago. And on Tuesday I blocked Damask for a friend to go to a wedding in while I’m down in Atlanta.
It was made of the purple silk wool blend I had picked up in DC on my day trip ages ago. It’s partner in teal is what I made the wedding shawl out of.
Blocked it came out much larger than I expected, and while it looks like I may have had enough yarn to make the large (this is the medium) I doubt I would have had enough space to block it.
This does mean Shawl 9 of 11 is done, and shawl 10 has less than 40 rows to completion, but there is an increase in there that has the shawl go from 166 stitches to over 300 before the last 20 rows, so that will be a fun process. If not for that I would be sure I could finish it on the commute tonight.
I’ve mostly packed for the con, and have more costumes and corsets, than days in Atlanta, but we will see how well the Cyberwoman costume holds up. I’ve not spent a lot of time in it, and I did pack duct tape for emergency repairs. Also looking at the weather it will be in the 90′s so I may not want to spend time in the other costumes, which involve, leather, or a unitard under a full outfit, and gloves.
Also is it too early to have 8 costume ideas for Dragon Con 2012?
