I finally got the eyes onto this little sucker. I don't know exactly why, but I always seem to get stuck on that part, but when I finish I love the result. I guess it kinda looks like crap until I add the pupils.
The yarn was a bit tricky in terms of gauge, but I love the look of the texture. In a way, it reminds me of scales. Of course, the feel is nothing like scales, being mostly alpaca.
Other Countdown projects I've worked on this week:
- Slade (and found out it might need some tweaking in order to fit right... I'm kinda excited about this little modification. More to come.)
- Happy Flapless Flip Flop Socks
- Meadow Socks
Overall, it's been an encouraging start. I keep wanting to cast things on, especially with my latest handspun, but I'm trying to be good.
What languishing UFO have you picked up recently?
