WIP Wednesday, March 5, 2014

The sleeves are on! Wonderful Wallaby is coming along. I'm into the raglan decreases now but my will to go on is waning fast.


The other thing I'm working on is still my ongoing blanket sampler. This has moved so slowly as to look like it's not moving at all over the past few years, but I've picked it up a few times lately.


These are the top two rows all finished.


Back to the Wallaby!

These are the sleeves that never end...

I'm making a size 10 children's Wonderful Wallaby for Spike. He saw the one I made for Zee and asked for one, but with a red torso (he said torso) and sleeves, orange pocket, and blue hood. So of course I promised to make it happen!

But, this Wonderful Wallaby isn't feeling quite so wonderful right now in sleeve purgatory.


Here's a pic of the body.... I mean torso:


I'm making measurable progress, but I still have about three inches to go on these sleeves. Slowly. Surely. Just keep knitting!
