WIP Wednesday 114: The NeverEnding Story

You'll be glad to know beforehand that this is another short and snappy post - I've been up super-mega-early today in order to get Mini Diva to school in time for her Victorian day trip, dressed in something approximating the style of those days.

Auntie Fashion succumbed to the blackmail and sent cash for yarn, so work on her Blankey has resumed:

I know, you're sure you recall it as being much larger. 

And you're right, the first half is - this is the second half, which I plan to knit with the same amount of yarn as the first half, and then graft both halves together in the middle. Yes, I'm not quite sure how that will work out either. But hey, it's not steeking, so nothing to worry about, right ?

I forgot all about this in my Purple Passion post - Artesano 4ply Hummingbird100% Alpaca which accidentallyonpurpose got bought on my last trip to Twist in Woodbridge a couple of weeks ago when DH and I escaped the kids by dumping them both at the same party. Purty, huh ? I have no concrete plans for it as yet, but it looks like some kind of shawl-in-waiting to me.

 And then there is this WIP, a NeverEnding Story project birthed 7 years ago today:

Destructo Boy is far less chubby (he was a 10 pounder, delivered with only gas & air, in 3 1/2 hours from start to finish; no splits or tears - yes, I am incredibly lucky) and is far better-looking now, too. Along with his new sick stunt scooter, and his football party, his favorite present so far is this, which can fire its projectiles up to 12 metres away ...

I am off for a nap so I can make it through the rest of the day with my temper fraying slowly instead of snapping with a dangerous twang; so why not hop over to Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is working on today ?


  1. The Artesano Hummingbird does look delightful! And Happy Birthday to Destructo Boy :)

  2. The blanket looks great! Happy Birthday to Destructo Boy.

  3. Happy birthday Destructo Boy! October birthdays are the best!

  4. Love the colours in the blanket. If you're that far on the second half you must be nearly done! Good luck with the birthday party - if you can get through that with no tears then that's really something too :)

  5. I think that blanket is going to be stunning. And happy birthday to Destructo Boy - gotta love the new toy. Pure Destructo Boy. :)

  6. Woo, glad Destructo Boy only became such AFTER he was born! =) Lovely yarn all around!!

  7. Happy Birthday Destructo BOY! Thank goodness Auntie Fashion sent reserves! That blanket is too pretty to leave unfinished. Good luck with the whole grafting situation... I look forward to seeing how you manage.


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
