Still seaming and hooking…

So while that long project gets a little longer, I’m taking a breather and working on a new pride necklace. Can you guess which one it is?

There are more final stages of the long knitted clothing project to come. In the meantime, here are some previews of my next cosplay:

I haven’t worn flannel since 1998 (and I have never been to bible camp).

This project also required the purchase of a hip flask — something I can absolutely use outside of cosplay. Not sure what I’m going to fill this with or the con, but I’m leaning toward cherry limeade.

Making up…

The knitting portion is done and I’ve been busy sewing everything up. Mattress stitch on knitwear has never quite worked for me, so I’m trying a combination of whip stitch and back stitch. We’ll see how it goes.

The peacock accent ended up blending really well with the cappuccino, even as the piece took on a more clothing-like shape.

It’s a bit small for me, sadly, but I’ve already found the piece a new home with a friend of mine.

Stay tuned for the finish!

It’s a momentous day…

Binding off…

…and my first crochet hook. Since the pattern for the clothing project calls for it, I’m finally going to give hooking a shot.

Back to the cappuccino…

The peacock accent is officially finished! Time to return to the cappuccino yarn and, soon, the end of the knitting portion of the design.

After a week of knitting, this thing is almost as tall as me.

In St. Louis for two days and one of my kitty nephews decided to help with my knitting project. It figures — this is the one named after the lead character in Doctor Who.

And it looks like the peacock accent is absolutely going to work! I’m so pleased. A little patience does produce some rewarding results.
