OMG Look! Finaly a post without the damn jumper in it!
….Except it is still Sherlock related XP And now I rather regret not taking a shot of it with the jumper, but ah well, a bit too late for that as you’ll see in a moment. I swear I do have some non-fandom things I’m working on, but either they’re not finished, or I’m just being insanely lazy about posting them.
But if the pic above didn’t tip you off, Happy Red Pants Monday! (Yes, it is insanely late at night but still before midnight in my timezone so still on time)
Anyways, these were created not just for the silly awesomeness that is RPM, but also as an actual gift for the originator, reapersun! I was hoping that she might post something about them so as not to ruin the surprise (well, that’s on the assumption that this post would reach her), but thanks to potential USPS issues, I wasn’t sure if that would happen and I wanted to post a genuine RPM post so…here it is ^^;;
PS. I can’t remember how many times I started and restarted this project. At least four I think. The main problem was converting a solid-color panties pattern into a multi-color briefs pattern, especially since I hadn’t quite gotten the hang of changing colors in the middle of rows. I had some gaps in the project that I was just going to live with, until I suddenly finally figured out intarsia! Seriously…why has it taken me years to finally get the hang of it? Photo below actually shows the transition pre- and post-EUREKA! moment.
So of course even though I was about halfway done, I had to frog the whole thing as there was no way I could be satisfied with leaving gaps in the pants now! It hurt at the time, but am now very glad I did so.
