1Or, I can’t believe its not knitting!!

Yes my friends, I finally make a post that’s not about knitting! This one is an Alice in Wonderland inspired cat’s tail. The idea origionally came from a contest that I entered, that featured a “Chessie Tail” as one of the prizes, as well as a signed book by the author A. G. Howard who writes dark Alice in Wonderland books.¬†While the tail matched the description of Cheshire in her books, it certainly didn’t match the Cheshire that is most recognizable, the pink and purple one from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.

WIP Wednesday

At the moment, the only project I really have on the needles is the semi-circular scarf from my Alice In Wonderland collection, Frumious Bandersnatch, which is going great!! I love the yarn I’m using, Mill Ends from Stitch Studio by Nicole, and the lumpy, uneven texture of the yarn only serves to enhance the project itself. However, before I offer up the pattern, I’ll have to figure a way to make the starting point, the middle, lay flat, mine has an odd bump to it, which I can’t decide if its the yarn or a mistake I made. I don’t mind the bump, but some people who would want to use the pattern might.

That’s actually the only pattern on my needles at the moment, surprisingly, because I’ve finished Twist and Slouch, and I haven’t yet started the scarf to match it, or the hat and gloves to match my Sea Witch Cowl.
