I know I should be taking more pictures of Scherezade. I finished the first half, complete with the edging and the first chart pair of the second side. I am now well into the second chart pair; leaving me the third, part of the fourth, the fifth and the sixth to go. I have eliminated almost a full chart from both sides in an attempt to make it a more reasonable length (daughter’s request).
At this rate, I should be on to blocking this weekend.
Meanwhile (grin), I took a detour to the second Phoenix sleeve, picking both a different chart portion and a different color. The color changes are both the yarn and the lighting.
I like the cuffs –
which are bound off with both strands to give a slightly firmer control. I also knit them fairly firmly so that they are not floppy, nor will they particularly push up. If I have calculated properly, they are going to be too small around for any of my wonderful daughters to poke their lovely paws through.
Moving on to Haunted – Kelley Armstrong. This is Book 5 (as I remember) of her Women of the Otherworld series. I read them all a while ago. The narrator is doing a credible job and I am enjoying how well Armstrong has dropped hints of character twists, relationships, and turns for later novels.
