I've completed staining and assembly. Isn't she beautiful?
Seeing it in action, it looks absolutely nothing like watermelon, more like bubble gum, but that's perfectly pleasant as well.
I haven't had a chance to actually spin yet for a few different reasons.
1. Finals next week. I have been doing fairly well in my classes thus far and as of last night I currently have all my homework turned in except for a little tiny math assignment due the day of the final. I do still need to study and likely won't have the chance to spin until finals are over.
2. TARDIS socks. Upon realizing that there is a good chance the sweater I'm working on for my boyfriend will be too small (He refused to take measurements for me, and evidently is no longer a 'men's large') I needed a new plan. We are both avid Doctor Who fans, so I'm making him these:
here, on Ravelry, and the rest of the sock I'm kind of just 'winging it'. I've also decided to make the heel and toe white, as I saw in another version on Ravelry, in a silly attempt to save enough of the blue yarn to make myself a pair afterwards ;)
Another bit of news in the Christmas gift track, I've decided to make my mother a lace knit scarf. I've made a tiny bit of progress so far
here also on Ravelry. I really liked this pattern, it makes me think 'fancy french wallpaper'. Also, I'm using the same Paton Kroy FX yarn that I am using for the mystery shawl, simply because I really like those color changes!
What Christmas gifts are you working on this year?
