Taking My Own Advice.
I want to use the yarn for anything else, not sure exactly what- but I saw it in my fiber closet last night and drooled over the color.
As sad as I am to see this project fail, I'm glad that I'm finally making a decision about it. It's been staring at me whenever I open my Ravelry notebook or the stash closet, where it is safely enclosed in a ziploc bag, along with the beads and crochet hook. I love the beginning, I love the wing. It's just the center part that I'm "meh" about doing. (And the part where it joins together at the wing- but I've seen it on real people and I've decided that the whole project looks beautiful regardless.)
Today, it's coming to an end. I wish there was something I could do with this. It's too small lengthwise to be used as a scarf. Really, it's at an odd shape to do anything with it, except finish or frog.
So, if you hear the croakings of a particular knitting animal tonight, that's just me.
In the meantime, let's reminisce...
Where I'm at today:
I think I have the clues correct. All apologies if I don't. It's been awhile since working on it.
