Work in Progress: The Mermaid's Gift

Whew, I am in full panic mode, as I always seem to be when I am under a deadline.  Things are coming along...I just need to learn how to relax, but also not procrastinate so much!  Like last night, after I spent the day photographing, writing up and then sending off the test draft of Hesperides to my test knitters...I kept finding more things to do on the computer.  What I really needed to be doing was working on The Mermaid's Gift...which I did, around 10 pm.  This whole DST thing always does a number on me, especially when I am in this crazed state!

Anyway, that said I did finish almost an entire section on TMG, which I am really happy about.  Even if that does mean I was up past 1 am and slept in this morning!  I am super pleased with how it is coming along and I think my bead choice; while a bit, um, bright will work out well with the pale blue lace.  Also, I am wondering why I didn't get on the half circular shawl thing a lot sooner!  That is one of the things I love about working on this eBook, I wanted all 6 shawls to be constructed differently, so it is really making me step outside of that triangular shawl comfort zone!

The colors on this are rocking my world!  I am a powder blue lover from way back and I think the beads will do a wonderful job to give it the feeling of spray on top of ocean waves. Plus the yarn color is Malabrigo's "Blue Surf" and the beads are called "Miami Surf!"


  1. Oooo! Purdy! Can't wait to see the finished project!

  2. What's wonderful color! I dream to see it ASAP!
