WIP Friday

Seems like it's been a while since there has been any actual craftiness going on around here - particularly in light of the fact that BadFortuneCookie was begun with the intent of being a crafty blog...

Hopefully that's about to change - I've got some stuff on the needles, and some big old good intentions...

For starters -



For Bubba. This is a modified Architect's Scarf from Greetings From the Knit Cafe. I realized that I had never made Bubba anything, and it seemed high time to rectify that. (Keeping in mind the whole "Boyfriend Curse" thing, I am going to make him promise to give it back if we break up...)

This has been a fun little project - made even more so because this is all stash yarn. You might recognize the colors from this, this, this, and these...



There were a couple of reasons why there's not been a ton of craftiness around here - the holidays, the plague, and the subsequent recoveries from both, for starters. But one of the big stumbling blocks to getting the party started again? Lack of supplies...

So I was delighted to see these arrive today:

I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me...

Yes, my big envelope full of eyes finally arrived! (I ordered these the first week of December, but they were taking their own sweet time to be sent out...)

I really needed these: in addition to the 2 bears that I still have promised out, three more babies were born over the holidays*. Not to mention all the people I just would like to knit a bear for...

Better get knitting....



*Which to me is kind of impressive that my peers are still cranking out gorgeous and healthy babies. Impressive, and a little bit surprising... we're all getting old!

Great scarf!
I couldn't imagine crankin' out a baby. Yes, I'm getting old. Too old to birth babies!

I need to see if you have any good intel on eye procurement, as my supplies are dwindling and I got them all from this sketchy eBay shop.

Pretty scarf! and p.s.: the Boyfriend Curse is a loada beans.

Nice scarf! And very artfully posed for its picture!
I spent the last several days chasing after my sister's two small children.
I am definitely getting too old for that! (at least, for more than a few days of it!)

Hey easy on the oldness. If I remember right I am only a few years behind you. I am not ready to be an old barren maid yet. I just squeaked in on not being a spinster as it is!

Great scarf! I am sure that he will love it!

Great crafting already! Knit, knit, knit like the wind you little Cookie!

Love the scarf. And I think all I've made for Tim is a monkey t-shirt (freezer paper). Gah!

And no more babies for me, thankyouverymuch! I AM old!

Look at you, getting all crafty and stuff! You know, I never have made anything for my husband, not that I can think of anyway. Wait, does 3 babies count? Yes, I'm up to my eyeballs in babies. No more for me, thankyouverymuch.

lovely scarf. i think you're at the point in your realtionship with bubba that he deserves a scarf, all that "curse of the boyfriend sweater," be da*&^%! sounds like a great title for a nacy drew or knitting/murder mystery, no?
