Cocoons, sort of

this isn't a great picture, but i'm making progress with my little puffy cocoons. the only problem is the utter unstretchiness of the yarn, which leaves some baggy ends. but i think it'll work, and it's been fun to make.

The Olympics of Knitting

I love this book! My try at Drifting Pleats set me to swearing, so I started with Fringe and then Easy Wave. Now I'm doing Hourglass and then Flapper. Once I get into shape, I'm going for Tricorner and my ultimate goal, Drifting Pleats.

It took two heavy staplers to keep my book open, so I took it to Kinkos and after a few dollars it was a spiral bound version.

I really hope there's a sequel!
