Philosopher's Coat Update

It's been a while since I've done an update on the Philosopher's Coat. I have been working on it - promise! I had a period where I just needed a break...hence all the new things in my etsy shop.

I'm still taking it slow on the Coat, but I'm very close to being done. My mom and I had knitting/crocheting parties last week while watching Grey's Anatomy, and now I have the first front panel done! Woo! All that is left is the second front panel, sewing it all together, and figuring out how to do button holes. I've mastered button holes on felted things, but that's a little different. I guess it'll be a learning experience!

I will be so glad to have this Coat done. I'm excited to see what it looks like, but also excited to have all the leftover yarn that will come with it! :) I see many felted bags in my future...*rubs hands together and cackles*

I finally decided what to make for the Ravelympics! I've joined Team TARDIS and will be making my first two items from Stitch 'n Bitch: The Happy Hooker! I'm making FrouFrou with my boxfull of Noro Gemstones for the Sweater Sprint. I'm excited to have found a pattern for this yarn and hope it turns out well. My second event is Vest Vault...though technically I'm making a shrug. I'll be making Short and Sweet with Reynolds Saucy in black. I wanted to make a red one, but my LYS didn't have red worsted cotton. But, as everyone tells me, black goes with everything.
