It's Wednesday, So Here's Some Unfinished Stuff.
Lilac Cat 2.0, a commission that I should be more excited about than I am because commission work is intrinsically awesome and flattering. Someone saw the first Lilac Cat at a craft fair and wanted one to give to a friend's daughter, and I was all OMG OKAY LOOK HERE I'LL DRAW A SKETCH OF THE CAT AND YOU TELL ME WHAT COLOURS YOU WANT FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT PIECES! And then she asked me if I still had the exact yarns I'd used for the first one, which was semi-disappointing because I was hoping to do something new and different and totally custom in this little girl's Most Favourite Colour, or something.
pattern with an informal crochetalong to go with over on Ravelry. I'm doing this in Malabrigo sock in Persia, and from the minute I started it, I couldn't believe how well the colours were working up. I've had so many weird experiences with skeins that look gorgeous but then just...don't work for anything I try to make with them, but I'm crazy about this thing already. The way the greys show up reminds me of stones in a riverbed. So far it has a 16" wingspan.
Go see what everyone else is hooking and non-hooking over at WIP Wednesday. :)
