Believe it or not, we’re nearing the cut off for getting a Drafter Tour T. If you’re not familiar with these, these are the shirts that Tim and I put together and make available for you to wear to a signing. We try to take a “family” photo at each stop with everyone who shows up wearing one, and it has grown every year until now it’s hard to get us all in the shot. The other photos we take tend to vanish over the years, but the family photos are forever, and you can still find them on the website if you look.
To get yours, check out Bedo shirts.
To see if I’m coming anywhere near you so we can compare dragons, check out the event’s page.
I know I promised you how to sew the wing backbone on today, but the copyedit for SIDESWIPED (First Drafter novella!) came in yesterday, and I had to switch to something that wasn’t video intensive, ergo, the right wing panels. I’ll have the wing backbone for you tomorrow, and then there’s a scheduled catch-up day before we start in on the feet for the weekend.
The right (red side) wings are pretty much mirror images of the left (blue side) wings, but I did make a video of that weird purl decrease from the knit side.
I also have instructions at the website if wordpress scrunches them too much.
When you’re done, you’ll have something like this.
You might notice that they are reversed with the blue (left) is pictured on the right. This is so you can see the top of the wings. When they are sewn on, the blue will be on the left of the dragon.
Instructions: Note, instructions for left wings (blue) are on this as well. If you forget any of the stitches, you can find them at the website for the left wings instructions
P* from the purl side:
