Back from the Depths
A couple weeks ago I cleaned and reorganized my room. The same day I had the stash bust sale. Selling about 32 skeins of yarn. I wish I could say it made a bigger dent in my stash than it did. But there is more room, and that is the important part right? Nods.
But with cleaning and moving all the yarn around, the poor Marvel Scarf surfaced again. I posted during 2KCBW (which should be coming up again I believe) how it had been languishing for a year. On my way home on the train, I was reading when I could not stop thinking about the scarf. I got home and I sketched out a design on graph paper while I made dinner and I pulled out the scarf. There is now another square in the making!
That my dear friends is a 4, for the Fantastic Four. It’s been ages since I read the comic and I know their team layout and color scheme is on the fritz, but this is mostly what I think of, blue white, with a four just off center. I always liked that the FF had the same Uniform as best as could be done for Ben. Marvel’s First Family, was fun, I was even entertained by that cartoon, oh the 90′s.
So that brings me up to three squares. At the pace I am going I’ll have a full scarf by 2020 if I am lucky. Let’s hope I start to move faster. I think the next square will be the X men, then maybe Thor , Spiderman, Ms. Marvel (who actually has a sketch), and a Phoenix or two. Apparently my plot of hanging it from a clear plastic bag, that I passed everyday woke some shame, and I actually got to work.
If I keep this up I may have to make a comic blanket of epic geek.
