WIP-it Wednesday...

...and there are several things in play.

As promised, here's a look at the current state of Anasazi:

Anasazi, as of 1/22/14

Not my favorite color combination, but it's still infinitely better than Vegas (AKA: the Pink Nightmare).

I have knit about 4 inches of the 10 inches that I need for the Cousteau hat.

I have restarted the Rockefeller shawl and the Cat Bordhi method of hiding the wraps for W&T is working. Halleluja!

Mediterranean Mermaid: the beading has begun! I found a few thread options at Jo-Ann's yesterday. I found a slightly thicker invisible thread, a light gray silk, a pale blue rayon, and a pale green rayon. The pale green matches the fabric very well and is easier to work with than the invisible thread. Here's what the tail looks like so far:

Let the beading begin...

It's going to be a long slog...this picture represents about 3.5 hours worth of beading.

In stash news, I received a couple of club shipments this month. First is the December 2013 installment of the Rockin' Whorl Club from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. This is Spring Dreamin', a Camel-merino-silk blend.

This is the last installment for me as I decided not to renew the club. I much prefer the ProVerbial club installments from A Verb For Keeping Warm. For the January 2014 installment of the ProVerbial club, I received Birds of a Different Feather, a blue merino-silk, a red alpaca, and a shawl pattern.
