WIP-it Wednesday...

...while not a lot is happening on the WIP front, I do have a couple that I haven't posted.

These are Sparkly Boot Toppers [Ravelry]:

Sparkly Boot Toppers

The yarn is Red Heart Boutique Midnight that I found at Michaels. It's the first time I've used it and I figured boot toppers were a small enough project to see how the colors flow, etc.   So far it's OK. We'll see how I like the finished product.

As I mentioned in the last post, I started spinning Violets in the Grass [Ravelry] over the weekend  Here are the singles, ready to ply:

I'll be interested to see what it looks like when I chain-ply it.

Here's the updated list of WIPs.

WIPs in rotation:
  1. Anasazi by Susan Portra (needlepoint)
    Working on the center square
  2. Mediterranean Mermaid by Mirabilia, originally started 11/6/11; restarted 9/1/13 (cross stitch)
    Still working on the beading. The beaded swirls that flow off of her fins are very time-intensive.
