Lately.

Batman has gotten arms and eyes, but no bat. I'm really not looking forward to adding it. I have the worst time needle felting details on like that. And the idea of gluing it isn't very appealing, either.

Master Chief still needs his helmet sewn on and the yellow part added. B says that he wants this one, making the first attempt the Elf's Solstice gift.

Iron Man sweater is complete.

B asked me for knit pants. I've never attempted adult sized longies. The base is a grey wool and I'm using scraps for the color stripes. I'm actually quite happy with how it's coming along. This will be my first time adding in a gusset though. Hopefully I'm understanding the basic directions (as I don't use a written pattern for my longies to begin with).

None of this exactly explains my radio silence. I don't have an excuse, really. I just find myself doing other things - frantically reading Harry Dresden books to get ready for today's release of the fourteenth book in the series. Not that I started reading it after lunch or anything. Because really, that'd be obsession, right?
