Enthusiasm which has translated into some real progress.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I've been working on two of the items on my list this week. First up, I started a shawl using my Stash Addict Dark Arts Sparkle.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/149308959/dark_arts_sparkle_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="206" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/149308959/dark_arts_sparkle_medium2.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I chose to use this one to join in the <a href="http://www.craftsfromthecwtch.co.uk/p/kal.html">Crafts From the Cwtch Pick a Boo KAL</a>, to knit the free <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dragonfly-wings">Dragonfly Wings</a> pattern by <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/designers/boo-knits">Boo Knits</a>.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/171975495/DSC03367_medium2.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/171975495/DSC03367_medium2.JPG" width="300" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I'm 27 rows in and have just reached the third garter stitch ridge. I'm enjoying this so far, the yarn is great to knit with although the stellina is taking some getting used to. I'm also struggling to keep my increases in the centre neat, but I am ever hopeful that a good blocking will sort out my dodgy stitches once I'm done!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">The other item on the list that I've dug out is the project of doom. I knew I'd seen the charts I'd already drawn up for the Game of Thrones blanket design when we moved in, so I went on the hunt to see how much work I'd already done.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OMvnZ2Ir3-w/Udf25_y9LyI/AAAAAAAABho/EeQHGWlBPS4/s1600/DSC03363.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="300" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OMvnZ2Ir3-w/Udf25_y9LyI/AAAAAAAABho/EeQHGWlBPS4/s400/DSC03363.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As it turns out, I'd done all ten of the charts I need for the house sigils, so this week I have been mostly transferring them to the computer and rendering them in colour, to see just how they will look. The next job is to actually make one, and see if my charts do translate properly into actual crocheting and knitting. I'm going to test both crafts, as I'd love to write this up as a pattern for both.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I need to order some yarn first though, as I don't have the right colours in my stash. I've matched up colours to the Stylecraft colour range, so at some point I will place an order with <a href="http://www.deramores.com/">Deramores</a>&nbsp;to get everything I need. I'm in two minds about whether to try and learn proper intarsia, or to just decide to back the whole thing with fabric so I don't have to worry about carrying my colour changes behind the work!</div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q5cxxEXY_Vg/Udf3_SWNL0I/AAAAAAAABh0/mib6iapl89U/s1600/crochetbyconroy1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="160" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Q5cxxEXY_Vg/Udf3_SWNL0I/AAAAAAAABh0/mib6iapl89U/s640/crochetbyconroy1.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div style="text-align: justify;">One week into the new Year and I am full of enthusiasm about my list.
