Ishbel is blocking behind me. It's a good feeling seeing it there (even if it is completely unphotographable - a red shawl on a red blanket is not very eye catching). I don't have enough pins to block out each point, and I could really use a set of blocking wires. My top edge is not exactly straight. The shawl takes up the entire top edge of the throw blanket, so I'm glad to have made the large size and gladder that I am not trying to block it any bigger.
Instead, I'm spending my morning playing Kingdom of Loathing (which I haven't consistently done in a while) and pulling together a small amount of sewing stuff to finish up the necklace today. I am in prototype creation land, and am trying to come up with a sphere pattern that looks interesting, knits up large enough, that I can stuff some of the dog squeakers I have. Instead, I appear to have created a mouse, currently sans ears, with a pocket for putting catnip in. Not bad for never having made anything other than scarves without a pattern.
Tonight is baking night, and picking up fabric. This weekend I start sewing costumes for the Mikado. It's a good thing I am not currently in training for a half marathon, because I am totally eating into my running time. It's only for a month or so, but it is a good feeling to help.
