1st draft“Water Leopard”. Had roughly 37,000 words at the start of the month. Now I have around 44,250…
I also worked on something about gothic houses.
"Lucky Kate”. I think I’m doing the last pass now.“The Cicatrix Diary”. I had a brilliant idea that made the setting and characters work way better for a short story.
ConnectingIt's the thing I don't do. Maybe next month.
Margaret Beaufort (AS Tudor Roses 2013). Finished button bands, danglers and blocking. It came out great. I followed the pattern everywhere except I doubled the waist shaping so it doesn’t hang like a sack.
Tilted Duster (Norah Gaughan IK Fall 2007). At the start of the month I had just started the “skirt”. I finished that, and the first sleeve up to the cap.Rust Damask Jacket (Takle & Kolstadt). The month started with maybe 5 rows of the neck done, 10 inches of the first sleeve and two of the second. I finished that first sleeve and moved onto the neckband as my “focus” project, because the backing will be mindless, and it would be good to have a mindless thing when the Tilted Duster is done, because that will progress this one without me starting something else. Unfortunately due to how it was charted I had to rip out eight rows of neckband which sucked. I started the colorwork on the second sleeve.
