Work-in-Progress Wednesday 28
I'm working on the same projects this week, but have made a little progress. I finished helping my sister move this week, which was great to get through. It was something that I knew was coming, but was dreading it beyond belief. Like everyone, I hate moving. I'm glad she's the one and not me, but it's still not fun helping. I'll hopefully have time for some knitting soon, which I'm excited about. Editing is almost done and then I'll be plotting my new book.
Last time you saw my monster, Petunia the Patio Monster by Rebecca Danger, it was just the start of the magic loop. I must say, going through the process, magic loop is a little slow moving the needles back and forth, but I still love it. I didn't have to worry about the other needles as I would with DPNs or double circs. As you can see in the first picture, I finished the body area. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. There are a few areas where the the yarn piled a little, but huge a huge deal. I've learned SO many things with this project so far and will learn more with the arms and legs. First, the magic loop. Second, the 3 needle BO, which I'm so proud of, I shared with a second picture. I didn't have a 3rd US7 needle, so I changed the back needle to a US6 and used the 7 not on the cable to do the actual BO. I think it turned out great. One thing I'm disappointed about, I hoped to finish the project for FO Friday, but I need US7 DPNs for the arms/legs. I hope to get them sometime this week. :)
I haven't done too much work with this, but it's to the point where I'm just working sc all the way up and not increasing/decreasing. I'm making the pattern up as I go. You may remember, it's going to be my manuscript holder when I'm editing away from the house. I hope to finish this soon, but sc is kind of slow.
I've worked a little on my scarf, but again, it's a garter knit scarf so not too much to show. I hope to really crank through it this weekend, as I'll have a lot of relax time on my hands. :)
