Tyendinaga is Done!

Mandy has let me know that she’s finished testing the shawl.  Now I just have to check her suggestions and corrections and get it made up into a PDF file.

Job searching has taken priority over so many other things in life but I hope to be able to get to it all some time this week.

If you’re interested in the shawl pattern, I think I’ll sell it through email here until I get a Ravelry shop set up.  Does $5.00 sound fair for a quickie Word file?  You can reach me at withasigh at netscape dot ca for the details!

WIPs Wrestlemania, 2009

On Team Right Hook, in WIPs Wrestlemania 2009, we’ve decided to vote on a crocheted mascot for the team.  My vote goes to the Kokeshi Doll.  How cute does that sound?

Problem is, they are cute.  It should be fun trying to make one look mean and nasty enough to take on my WIPs.  I thought the mascot should be something small and quick to crochet because I don’t want it interfering with my current WIPs and WIPs-to-be, and I especially don’t want her to become WIP as well!

I don’t have half as many WIPs to work on as quite a few other people do, but they’re growing.  I found one the other day; a tam crocheted with size 10 thread.  It’s a little bit lacy … (I’m trying to picture it) … or maybe a tad fileted.  I know she won’t wear it, but it would look so cute on my sweet-but-non-crochet-worthy daughter.  I keep trying to crochet for her despite her constantly telling me she won’t wear it or use it.  I just keep hoping that this time she’ll love it.

Do not crochet for this woman!

Do not crochet for this woman!

I have a few more WIPs, I’m going to fiddle around and see if I can come up with a page or links for them or something.  The more committed I become publicly about Wrestlemania, the more I am likely to actually get in the ring!

I bet she’ll want the Kokeshi Doll!
