In process -- May 2015
“Before Breakfast”. Short story, not too long. Needs more character development though.
“Milo”. Short story. I wrote the first draft on five envelope backs.
“Wind/Water/Salt”. Writing missing scenes, adding characters.
“Wind/Water/Salt”. Chapters 35 to 38 edited.
“Ceremonial Armour” (Kaffe Fassett, knit from a photo). Finished the body. Started tying in ends, then need to do edging and sew on beads, then block and it's done! It sounds so simple.
“St. Anthony’s Ribbon” (self-designed). I thought I was going to have to rip out a couple of inches, but after abandoning it for a couple of months, I decided all I needed to do was rip back maybe 30 minutes’ work and do shoulder decreases more rapidly. That was going really well so I went too far and ended up ripping out a bunch then doing the neck decrease and casting off. Now I need the needle that’s in Rust Damask Jacket, so I can do the neck edging. Almost done!
Vinterlys (Norsk Strikkedesign). I am pushing to finish the “front” portion of the second sleeve so I can get this off the long US2 needle, so I can use that needle to start the fair isle portion on Rust Damask Jacket. Maybe 26 rows until that milestone is achieved. Next week?
Rust Damask Jacket (Takle & Kolstadt). Ignored.
Honey for the Bee. Socks. Carry-around project. 2.5 inches done.
