Almost done, kitten and April baby sweater
The kitten has had all of its knitting done. Now comes the sewing up. We're into real FOMU (fear of messing up) territory here. Don't know why this twist in the project road should inspire any more worry than the rest of the pattern, but it does. Okay, as near as I can tell there are only 4 legs on this critter and they seem to go at the appropriate angles to each other, but......
I'm not eager to work with eyelash yarn again, certainly not in an all-over-the-project way.
For those who have been making comments about the Flamingos in the comments, thanks very much. They're so cute, I'm thinking of making one for the counsin in Florida's triplets due in July. As a summary, the pattern is Fiber Trends #221X, and I use Lamb's Pride Worsted, or its variant, Steadfast Fibers Wonderful Wool, and I find I use about 2 1/2 skeins of the main color, rather than just 350 yards as the pattern says.
I conquer Kulch in a bookcase over the weekend. It coughed out several barrettes I'd been missing, including the sheep one.
