Getting Closer!!

I've been doing a lot of crocheting for some designers this past couple of months, so I haven't had a chance to sit down and finish my Silver Nights Jacket lately!  But I think I'm getting closer to doing so!  :D

I did get the sleeves re-done, and you know what?  It works out pretty well when you follow the directions the way you're supposed to!  lol 

I did figure out a way of doing the wrap and turns so they're not so "visible" and I'm liking the effect so far.  Both sleeves curve the same way now and don't spiral around on me like the first one did when I had everything going on on the one side instead of both sides.  I'll have to get some pics taken of that part.  I also got started with the back section and got about half way done with the left side when I started doing some model making.

Today I get to take Missyboo out trick or treating with some friends at the mall.  That'll be a first!  I didn't know we could do that!  Should be fun.  I even get to get dressed up!  Missyboo and Hubby made me get a costume too!  Haven't done that in ages!

I'll also have to get back to my blankets I'm making as part of the Land's End Warm Up America campaign.  The yarn is soft, but it does have a tendency to be on the splitty side!

Sounds like life is keeping you busy. Can't wait to see the jacket when it's done. BTW, what was your costume? My oldest decided to take a black t-shirt and write the word COSTUME on the front. She also wore a black mask. Simple and cheap. My favorite.

I got to dress up as a witch, with my very own pointy hat with dangly gold stars hanging off the top perched on top of my black wig, a gnarly twig broomstick, and a lo-o-o-n-g cape. They even got me fake eyelashes that I couldn't use since there wasn't any adhesive included with the package! lots of mascara instead.... lol
