IHSW = IHK(nit)W? :p

The weekend isn't over yet, but I don't think any more stitching will get done.  And to be fair, none of the stitching that happened was done by me, ohohoho!  It pays to have other crafty people around. :p

The giant lollipop is finished!

Now I can work down the trunk and do something other than leaves.  And I should really do more of Cirque... I've put in about four hours since Thursday so there's some visible progress.  Unfortunately, no picture of that one because... I dunno. :p  Maybe I'll edit with one later.

Yeah, here it is!

But I don't know if any stitching will happen, because I've been distracted by THIS:

The color is more accurate in the second picture (closeup).

This is only my third knitting project (and I've only finished one of the other two, haha) but it's going really fast and it looks cute because of the beads and colorful yarn.  We went to the local yarn shop (Yarntopia) on Friday and picked up the yarn and pattern because there was a finished sample in the store and I couldn't stop coming back to it and making pouty faces. :p  This pattern is called "Loopy Edged Beaded Scarf" by Sony Hartley and I'm using the recommended yarn, Ella Rae Lace Merino.

The scarf is supposed to go until it's about six feet long, and I have about one foot now.  So stitching may have to wait a bit while I plow through this bad boy. :D

PS:  Wagapapa, please contact me so I can send your giveaway goodies! :)

  11. Everything looks beautiful Rahenna! The tree is gorgeous and that scarf is amazing! I love those little sparkly beads you put in the knitting. Very nice tough! I really need to take up knitting or crocheting again but I'm really lousy at reading a pattern.

    Really great IHSW for you!

  12. LOL! I love your "giant lollipop". It's beautiful. So is your CdC. So vibrant and colorful.

  13. The giant lollipop looks fantastic.

    I love Cirque so much, I think I should buy the pattern, it's so cute and the colours you chose make it look wonderful.

    I have never tried to knit, I think it's so complicated for me.

    Have a nice day!
