Update as of 20 February 2011

1 - Knooked Lucy Bag - Still in progress. Admittedly, I have not worked on this in a while. Found out by a friend's example how well Peace Fleece works up felted. Now I just need to finish this too.

2 - Luna Lovegood Sweater - I've just started this one - around Row 4 - in what was left of the Grape Caron Simply Soft. I think I'm going to finish using this yarn for this one.

3 - Cinnabar in Artist Print - Acrylic, but whatever. I just started this one yesterday. And given the way the designer's patterns work up, I should be done with it sooner rather than later.

4 - 4S vest - Restarting this thing. I should probably rip it out and start over.

5 - Well Travelled Bag - Starting this one up again too. If I can finish it, and all that, I can use it.

Projects in mind:

- Catherine the Great in Soft Serve - I hope this works because it's a smaller yarn, and I might have to play around with the gauge a bit, but I wasn't happy with it in shawl form, so...

- Lacey Lamb - considering doing a Stella in this yarn... making it bigger or whatever. That is, if the yarn doesn't make me nuts. It is cobweb/light-lace-weight which I am going to double for this.

WIP update

Currently throwing all my energy into Soft Serve from Everyday Crochet by Doris Chan.

Thanks to some difficulties in my life outside of crafting, I seem to be focused on one project and one project only.

I have finished the yoke and am started on the body. I'm going to make the body as long as possible and then use the remaining yarn on the sleeves.
