TUSAL July, and More!

It’s the New Moon again, and that means it is time to share my Totally Useless Stitch Along photos.

All the knitting and crocheting I’ve been doing is really helping to fill up my jar.  I can see yarn from my crocheted Cthulhu on top (pictures soon), from my pink socks (ditto), and from the Baby Surprise Jacket and the bolero.  There is also lots of floss too, from the Baby Man’s Christmas stocking, Castles in the Air, and a couple of other projects too.

If you are interested in joining the Totally Useless Stitch Along (TUSAL), check out this post on Yoyo’s blog.  It is fun and, well, totally useless.

On to progress pictures of a different kind!

Baby Man’s stocking is coming along well, even though I am already tired of Christmas things.  Great, eh?  And I haven’t even started my ornaments for this year.  Ah, the hard life of a crafty person.  We always have to be so far ahead of the season, and therefore get tired of it so much quicker.

And, with Part 4 of Castles in the Air being released, I’ve decided that I really need to get moving on Part 3.  Here’s a small sample of how Side 1 is turning out:

I’ve decided to do all the urns are the Rhodes oval rather than half of them as oval eyelets.  And I still haven’t decided on beads.  I think I had better do that soon, or I’m going to have a whole huge pile of beading to do at once to get caught up.

On my knitting needles right now is the seemingly endless Tesla scarf, now about a foot long.  I may cast on another pair of socks soon, or go back to the two at a time ones I started a little while ago.  Cross stitch-wise, it is the stocking and Castles in the Air.  I’m also working on one of those small Mill Hill Treasured Diamond kits, and I hope to have that done and ready to share soon.

Tonight is my second entrelac knitting class, so I should have some super neat pictures of that to share soon too.

    Found your blog thru Zeb’s blog. She posted a pic of a pin keep that you did for her. It was gorgeous! Love following people’s cross stitch progress. Your knitting looks great too. Unfortunately, I have 2 left hands when it comes to knitting :o)
