WiP Wednesday

I’ve been knitting like the wind on my Celestarium this week.  I’m at the last increase row between the E charts and the F charts! Yay!?

It’s just a blob now – but I can’t wait until I can block it!!

Just 55 rows with 576 stitches each left!  (Plus the edging.) o.O

The yarn has been leaving blue dye on my hands like crazy.  I really hope it doesn’t bleed too much when I block it, but I have a feeling it will.  I would soak it in vinegar, but I worry that would ruin the beads.  I love the dense, dark blue of this yarn, though, so I would hate it if it fades at all.

Faberge – at about the same point as last week.

My Faberge has stalled, since I’ve been concentrating on the night sky instead. 🙂

Close up of beads. I’m really loving this color combo.

In other crafty news, I broke out my sewing machine yesterday and made myself an interchangeable needle case.

The zipper was a pain in the butt, and I didn’t do that great a job with it, but it works, so I’m happy!  Now my Knit Picks needles have a pretty home.

That’s what I’ve been up to – why don’t you take a gander over at Tami’s Amis to see what other folks have been up to?

    Love that needlecase! I went the easy route and converted a Vera Bradley paperback book cover. LOL. The shawls will be lovely.
