What Are You Working On is a community diary series for all things crafty, in a variety of mediums and techniques.
You may volunteer to guest host by signing up at this yahoo group, which I check from time to time. Also by joining this group, you will receive one email a week when the diary is posted.
I have wondered if dkos 4.0's messaging system has replaced the yahoo group. Any thoughts? Are there people on the yahoo group who are not followers? I supposed if I sent a group message, it would go to contributors and editors but not followers?
Many thanks to maggiejean, who hosted last week when I was freaking out and had no working camera. I have since not only acquired a new camera (which takes very sharp pictures), my son showed me how to take pictures on my cell phone.
Anyway, back to toys:
Continuing from my last diary and using Knitting Mochimochi, I finished knitting the alligator:
Here are individual shots of my mini-knitting:

Son's orange hamster
Daughter's sparkly Vanna White yarn hamster. Half of daughter's dolls and stuffed critters are named "Sparkles."
Meanwhile, I am truly nearly finished with the Pebbles and Waves scarf, and it is going off to be auctions for the Progress Congress News (hey spedwybabs, how do I put in a link to your site or your auction?)
I already started designing a second scarf in this theme for the Netroots Nation fall auctions, and I picked up some nice dark blue yarn after church today to use for it.
Cast on 7 stitches.
Row 1: Knit 7 stitches (front side)
Row 2: Knit 7 stitches
Row 3: Knit 7 stitches
Row 4: Knit 7 stitches
Row 5: Knit 7 stitches
Row 6: Purl 7 stitches
Row 7: Knit 7 stitches
Row 8: Purl 7 stitches
Repeat above sequence (Knit 5 rows, Purl/Knit/Purl) until desired length. End with Knit 5 rows. Cast off.
I wrote this so my daughter could acquire a few new skills, and have a small, achievable project. For this one, she learned to purl, and practiced reading a pattern.
