WIP Wednesday: A Dragon In The Works

So I managed to finish my blue angel shawl over the weekend, which left a big gap in my creating. I didn't really feel like delving into one of my long time WIPS, so I did what anyone would do ... I started to make an animal :) This is the Dragon pattern by FreshStitches and it is a "choose your own adventure" type pattern. She gives you lots of options for the features and you decide what your dragon will have (scales, ear flaps, wings, small or large horns, arrow tail or thick tail, etc). Believe it or not, I won this pattern a year and a half ago and had yet to make it up - I know, right?! It's so cute! So as part of my personal goal for the Ravellenic Games, I decided to make up at least one or two animal patterns I've had for a long time. I wanted a bright and fun colored dragon and I am thrilled with the color combo :) I made all my pieces first so I can attach them as I make the body, so this should finish quickly.
I also finished Gone Girl (ugh - book review to come soon), so I just started listening to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. This one has always intrigued me and it's been on my "to read" list for a long time. Then last night while browsing through the downloadable audiobooks from my local library, I came across this and checked it out :) It's definitely interesting so far! I love listening to books while crocheting or knitting, lol, making me more of an old lady.
So that's what I'm up to this week. Head over to Tami's Amis' Blog to see what others have going as well!

  2. GACK! I love that dragon!! Too cute! Stacey Trock is awesome... She's running a workshop near me in a couple of weeks and I soooo hope to get to it! (clearly my plan to delete earlier comment so I could use the correct username didn't work as well as I planned!)


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
