I’ve been a busy bee!
Updates on Wisp:
I'm getting there...
Slowly yet surely.
I’ve gotten up to the first knit panel! (gee, I only have like 15 panels to go :/) I’ve made this my main travel project, as I am just about done with the socks… which still need to be finished. I am so close, I can almost taste it—-
I just have like one more row of the cuff to do, and then the heel 🙂 I’ll try to finish it tonight, but I prolly won’t get to it until tomorrow, as I have a BBQ to go to later 😀
I didn’t bring Wisp with me today. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked 😉
I just got a netbook this weekend (squee!) I got this one:
It was on sale at PC Richards for $289… good deal, and I really needed it so there went about half my paycheck :3
I needed a sleeve for my new baby, but (broke as I now am) wasn’t gonna spend $15-25 on one.
So I decided to crochet one 🙂
Squee! Isn't it looking swell?
I’m a genius, what can I say?
I started it like I would a crocheted sock… but this time, I measured the short side, and chained 1/2- 1″ less than the length, then increased it until it was the length needed (I wanted a nice, rounded end). I chose to use Red Heart, as I needed a good, sturdy yarn that would cushion… the colorway (lipstick) is coming out in this amazing stripey pooling effect… I couldn’t have planned it better myself. People talk shit about variegated yarns and their pooling effects, but they have been nothing but good to me. This reminds me of when I made the Vertigo Hat… the colors pooled to make stripes! ❤
I’ve brought it along to work on…. I started it at 12:30 this morning, and I’m about halfway done now. Should take 2-3 hrs in total, tops.
I may make some to sell in the shop… I was thinking about making some with fabric linings and foam inserts for extra protection… Guess we’ll see.
More pictures when finished… which will more than likely be tonight.
