-As of tomorrow I'll be 1/3 of the way done in constructing Nicky's Mystery Present Project. I'm at the point where it looks wrong, but as soon as I get to the next step it'll look right. I hit the point on every project, it's just about getting past it.
-I, despite my better judgment, am doing NaKniSweMo
. A couple weeks ago I found a gorgeous veregated blue acrylic worsted that I plan on knitting into a basic veregated crew-neck sweater. Why? Because a) it's quick, cheap, and easy, especially on size 9s and b) it'll look really good on me. I'm a guy, and gay, an I have different criteria when making a sweater than some knitters I know. It's not about how intricate or interesting I can make it; I want it to look good on me in colour and fit, and be somewhat stylish while remaining simple. So my simple sweater that'll make my eyes pop it is.
Because I didn't have enough to do this month, what with two legal jobs, an organization or four, and shows to prepare for.
-Nicky's rainbow hat is done, except for weaving in ends. Need to get a creul needle tomorrow (I find it easier than crochet-hook-weaving), then it will be done.
-Glove1 cast on yesterday, now to the fingers. Should be done tonight.
-Rocky Horror costume finished, worn, and packed away safely for its next use! A big success.
-Angel costume started (as in Rent, not as in white wings).
-Kaseybear costume (no more details than that Nicky)
-Mystery present 1/4 done with stage 1. Stage 1 is supposed to be finished by Halloween, so I'm on track.
I have, apparently, an aversion to actually finishing projects this weekend. I've started like six today alone.
Welcome and List of Projects in Progress
Working on at the moment:
-Argyle sweater vest in Slush Rowan Calmer. CO ??/5/07 Almost to the decreases on the back, but haven't started the front yet, which will take awhile.
-Mystery Christmas present for Nicky (more details and pictures in locked post). Started 10/9/07, still very early stages.
-Vertical-stripe crochet scarf in black and sky blue Knitpicks Shine Worsted. CO 28/9/07 At this point about 5% complete
-Nicky's hat/gloves/scarf combo in rainbow colours of Lion Microspun. Scarf CO ??/3/07, approx 1/3 done. Hat CO 27/9/07, almost 1/2 done.
-Rocky Horror Frank N Furter costume for DC Kings Show. Started 29/9/07. Needs to be done by 3/10/07, so hopefully done tomorrow!
Now I just have to get batteries and a new cord for my digicam so I can upload pictures of my newly-finished Janda sweater (it looks adorable), my costumes, and the mystery gifts.
