WIP Wednesday

Hey look! I managed to do this on the "proper" day! Here are some of my many works in progress - I won't even mention the ones that are still brewing in my head!

It's supposed to be a butterfly (I'm using the pattern here). The idea was to make it look like a Monarch. I don't think I've succeded very well. It's still a WIP because I'm thinking about felting it. It's for a seasonal swap I'm working on. The next few are going to be less Monarch-y, but hopefully more butterfly-like. I'd originally planned on needlefelting a butterfly but it was beginning to look like the work of a kindergartener so I've switched tactics.

These are longies for the Beast. They look way too small - which probably means they'll fit (because apparently I'm crazy). I lovelovelovelove the colors - even if it is just store-bought yarn. The stitch markers are to help my addled brain keep track of the ribbing.

These are the needlefelted tree stumps I'm making for a "Waldorf stocking stuffer" swap. While this is helping me refine my tree root making technique, I am perishing tired of making these.

What are you working on?


  1. Wow! I'm loving your yarn on your needles! What is it? I had a chuckle about your tree stumps...hope to see what they become!

  2. Jules: The yarn is Paton's Classic Wool in Harvest. I'm too broke to be able to afford the lovely hand dyed yarns I see on the internet. :/

    The stumps are just that, stumps. I'm thinking about adding some grass or a few tree mushrooms or something to make them look less boring. It all hinges on my new felting needles getting here, though. I've worn mine down to nubs!

  3. Oh my goodness! Those tree stumps are ADORABLE. What fun! So nice meeting you.
