The beat goes on…


Even though I’m doing my best to deny it,
the New Year is almost upon us.

I’m not quite ready to burp that baby – this year has unfinished business galore! A trip to the Marination Chamber reveals several of what I will hereby refer to as *swatches* (but in fact are really pieces of abandoned projects).

Some of these swatches are close to finishing – a sock or two.

Some are quite ambitious. (This one MUST get finished. Somewhere. Somehow.)

Most are folly.

My Queen of Folly, the incredible non-edible Blingster, however, is almost finished. This lovely shell, who LONGS to ring in the New Year, is too advanced to be on the #66 bus anymore but is now the early morning/after work project. I wrote this pattern awhile back and since then have learned a thing or two developing another project, the elusive Nicole (who, because of my Ariann knitting deadline was viciously sidetracked. It missed its Christmas debut – I cry I weep. Whoever saw me wearing last year’s model, I apologize (not)).

Everything, including Queen Bling, will have its day eventually (this seems to be the lesson of 2006) and if I can just stay focused, might exceed expectations.

As you see above, the Back of Queen Bling is a modest scoop. This will reveal my lovely Little Drummer Girl tattoo, without scandalizing my more sensitive associates. The Front, however, is a different story…
