In the middle

It feels like I’m in the middle of all my projects. Every thing has one or two more steps before it is finished. That’s not a complaint though, this is the interesting bit. This is when everything is slowly revealing what it will eventually be, a glimpse into the future.

Current Works in progress

you can sort of see the dog through all the fluff when you are knitting him. πŸ™‚ Pattern from “Knit your own dog”, and it will be a weekend of finishing for me if the cat from “knit your own cat” was any indication.
Here’s exactly 1/2 of the dog
it's so fluffy!

106 yards of a ‘chunky’ yarn. At least that is what my WPI tool says. It looks bulky to me. πŸ˜‰
