Clue 3 of The Doodler arrived yesterday afternoon, as expected. I promptly got started picking up 300 stitches but with a row that long, there isn’t much to see just yet.
It’s gonna be awesome!! I can’t wait! One of my students has an awesome doodler too… her color C is bright yellow! I love seeing all the different color combos!
Her Color C is bright yellow! We picked the colors with a ‘what would Stephen do?’ mantra. I think we picked right! I love seeing all the different color combos! I love them all!
While we wait for more Doodler progress to ohh and ahh over, I did manage to finish a few things that had been lingering in the queue for many moons.
First, the R2-D2 beanie, who’s idea was intarsia? I always think… it’s not that bad. Except, it’s always that bad.
I turned that mess into something reasonable but not my cleanest work. It took a late night following a long happy hour to actually get it done.
I said a little prayer to the gods of blocking, R2 is drying now. Hopefully my prayers were heard!
And a long lingering WestKnit has come to an end. This is the Colonnade Shawl, started 18 months ago. I decided to end it several inches short of ‘complete’. I’m the boss of my knitting, I can do that.
And, if I don’t want to block it, I can ignore it in the sink for another hour or three. It’s good to be the boss!
Happy Friday…I’m off to doodle!
