A Nearly There Fairy

I’ve been moving along very well on Halloween Fairy. Below is the latest picture.

Halloween Fairy by Mirabilia
Threads: DMC and Kreinik #4 braid
Beads: Mill Hill
Fabric: 32ct. Cashel in Cobblestone

And, since a girl can never have too many WIPs, I started Once Upon a Tree by Jeanette Douglas (a series from this year’s Just Cross Stitch magazine). I’m doing all DMC for this, except for the Gloriana colours that have no DMC equivalent.

Threads: DMC
Fabric: Unknown linen, 32ct.

I’ve also been crocheting. My Pentacle Shawl looks like nothing but a long chain:

Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Millefili Fine

As for knitting, I’ve got one side of the front of the Baby Man’s Manly Kimono done.

Yarn: Bernat Baby Jacquards in Boo Berries

I’ve also got a new pair of socks on the go, using Crystal Palace’s Panda Cotton. The yarn is awful to work with, but the resulting fabric is wonderful!

Yarn: Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in Blueberries-Grapes

And, lastly, are a couple of dish cloths from the Monthly Dishcloth Knit-Along: Pot o’ Gold from March and Cheyenna from Mid-January. Pot o’ Gold was done in Sugar n’ Creme Yellow and Cheyenna in Bernat Handicrafter Summer Prints. The husband and I are trying to cut back on paper towel usage, and these soft dishcloths are great for wiping up things around the kitchen… and on the baby.

What will the rest of the week bring? Well, I hope to finish up Halloween Fairy and maybe even get her completely beaded. I’d also like to get a few more rows of the shawl done. Late last week I picked up some yarn to knit a small bag and a rabbit for the Baby Man, so maybe I’ll get started on one of those. I think the kimono will rest for a while, because it isn’t going to fit Baby Man until the fall.
