WIP Wednesday 12/11/2013

Chocolate Cephalopod progresses forward. I've finished the first sleeve and started the second one.

I took this pic yesterday and have added about 4 more inches since then. It seems to be going much quicker than the first sleeve did. I'll get this baby done in time I think. Hurray! I'm shooting for a Dec. 20th shipping date or earlier. Gotta have a definite goal to work toward.

I am working on this exclusively now, though there is one little project I need to get started soon. I've agreed to knit a square for a get well scarf a bunch of us in the Knittalk group on Yahoo are doing for an ill member. Shouldn't take too long to make. I just need to make a swatch, do a few calculations, then make the square. It's picking the yarn and stitch pattern that I'm having a hard time deciding. So many choices!

Live long and prosper. \\//


  1. Nice color work, I'll have to wake up my hibernating project and try color work again.

  2. Your colorwork is so crisp and clear! Wow. Mine never looks that sharp!
