How Blue Can You Get?

I've bitten off more than I can chew and still I continue to nosh.
Wanna see some knitting?  I can show you some, but not all...
And the stuff I can show you... is BLUE.

Look at this tiny blue stuff with a drinking theme.  The deep-stash yarn is discontinued:
 
Cheers! [Rav] by Cheryl Niamath; knit with just a little bit of Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed in colorway Teal
How bout a Nightcap? [Rav] by Julie Tarsha; knit with just a little bit of Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed in colorway Teal

It's the start of a blue something:
Campside [Rav] by Alicia Plummer; knit with Malabrigo Sock in colorway 856 Azules

Here's a blue test knit:

There has been a gigantic knitting behemoth that I can't share yet.
As usual, I'm le tired.  Blue is soothing, right?   zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

WIP Wednesday: Long Term Like Whoa

Those of you who have been following this blog for a while (hi, Mama!) may remember last year's vlog entry: my own and only video blog post as part of Knit & Crochet Blog Week.  And in that high-production-value fantastixtravaganza, I brought up my long-hibernating Spoke WIP, and I expressed hesitation and apprehension and all sorts of okay-I'll-start-this-again-but-I'm-not-sure-how-long-it-will-last feelings re: this sweater Of Doom.

HAHAHAHAHA I stopped working on it almost immediately! That edging was demoralizing -- fingers crossed I can finish this month.  Turns out this acrylic-merino blend is slightly more non-SW merino than my eyes can deal with.  Worsted weight and everything.
You said it, Oda Mae.

So as of four days ago, it looked like this:
Ooh  aah  curling.
Let's see if you can spot this week's contribution,
as of two days ago:
Boop!
Hint: the answer is there is now a sleeve and some.

I'm taking a break every other night because it's August and I can...
but I will get this done.  Soon.  Vengeance  Completion will be mine!
