Fairy update

Despite spending yesterday roaming 'round the area taking photos of things that caught my interest, I did manage to get some stitching in.

I've also made a nice bit of progress on the scarf as well. I've been taking it to work with me to knit on during my lunch break. I didn't take any pictures this week because the cats all seemed terribly interested in getting in my way and the Prodigal Son wasn't here to help me with them. I plan on taking the scarf to work with me this week as well so I can get it done more quickly. If things go well, I might have a completed scarf by next weekend. Keep your fingers crossed!

If anyone is interested in getting a glimpse of where I live, check out the photos on my other blog - So I've got a blog . . . Now what? If the photos aren't up on the active page, just look in the October 2005 archive. They should be near the top.

An update at last

Between hurricane evacuations and business trips and getting used to the new work schedule, I haven't felt much like taking photos even though I have been stitching on the butterfly fairy and knitting on the scarf. So I've taken the time today to catch up. I have a new snap of the fairy, but I haven't done one of the scarf.

This is what the butterfly fairy looked like last time . . .

And this is what she looks like as of today . . .

I am beginning to doubt I'll be able to finish her in time to get her framed for Christmas.

An update, of sorts

Between the evacuation for hurricane Rita and a business trip to Austin, I haven't had time to update my WIPs. I have been working on the butterfly fairy, but I haven't really done any knitting on the scarf since . . . well, I don't really remember when the last time I knit on it was. I'm in that lazy phase of a trip where you're home but can't be bothered to unpack and put up all the stuff you carted away with you. I hope to get over that phase tomorrow.

So sayeth the Great Procrastinator.

What kind of yarn am I?

You are Shetland Wool.
You are Shetland Wool.
You are a traditional sort who can sometimes be a
little on the harsh side. Though you look
delicate you are tough as nails and prone to
intricacies. Despite your acerbic ways you are
widely respected and even revered.
