I finished things!

Coraline is done, just awaiting button loops, which I won't put on until I have buttons, and it needs such a blocking, oh my god. I shudder at the thought of actually attempting to block something. Especially where it's half silk, which seems easy to fuck up.

I got in the rest of the yarn for my Sprout (and by "rest of" I mean, I ordered 3 balls, might need one and 3 yards of another) and finished the body today. I'm working on a sleeve right now. I need to go to bed soon, and tomorrow will be another kick in the ass with the two jobs, so I probably won't finish it right away, but I could probably be wearing it Friday. It might be a good spring jacket, too, although I'm only intending to do 3/4 length sleeves.

After this I think I'll do my pink scarf with Mal lace, if I can ever figure out a stitch pattern. I'd rather not do something complex because I don't want to suck up the yarn, but at the same time, I want it to be plain, not really lacy or open. So I'm at a loss. Just stockinette will obviously roll. And, as we've discussed, blocking and I are enemies.

God help me.

The WEBS tent sale is on my birthday.
