I have actually finished the knitting part of my Secret Yarnination! What's left: some preparation and a few ends to weave in — not many, because I'm a weave-as-you-go kinda gal. Washing and blocking. Two seams and two crocheted chains. The crochet almost doesn't count to me.
I still stink at binding off. The right side of the front is bound off a little too tightly, so (compensatorily) is bound off way too loose. I left long tails so I can fiddle with it later if I have to.
What makes me NUTS is that I can't show it to you! I don't think the pattern releases until late September.
Obviously I'll have to do some other knitting so I have something to show you. And I shall. But I shall also make Mission fig jam (thank you Crys & Ronise!) and Satsuma plum jam (thank you Ditty!) Someday I will darn it have my own fruit trees, but in the meantime I'm very grateful for their generosity.
