Rip It Good
Yay, the arm seems to fit!

Work In Progress Wednesday #9


I finally got the Strangling Vines scarf off the needles this week! It is not yet blocked, and might not be for another month or two, because I like to save finishing projects for the year-long KAL over at Crystal Palace Yarn. This is why I’m not doing that new year-long finishing projects thing, because I’m already doing something similar, and this is my second year.

But here’s a picture of it unblocked for you. Dijjit decided to lay on my bag of WIPs so I couldn’t use them earlier so I punished her by making her wear the scarf.

I mentioned making a swatch last week. Well, that swatch is becoming a shrug! It is the Pixie Shoulderette from the book Punk Knits.

Yay, the arm seems to fit!

It measures out long flat, but if I SC up the arm seam and put it on, it stretches the width instead of the length and fits pretty good. It has neat ladders going up the arms on purpose to look ripped BECAUSE IT’S PUNK SHUT UP I LIKE IT IT’S NOT FOR YOU! And it has spiffy criss-crosses in the back. I think this yarn is perfect for this project.
