WIP Wednesday - More Perry and Mystery CAL

I've gotten a bit further with the Perry the Platypus hat from last week. After a lot of trial and error, I decided to knit it flat and do a sort of stranded/intarsia combo method. Here we are so far:

Another clue was posted last week, so I have one more motif to share in addition to some of the ones I already made. They posted a third clue this morning, but I haven't had a chance to work it yet, and I wanted to get this posted first in case something came up later. I'm showing one of each color they had us do for each motif. If you click on the Perry link above, you'll see last week's. The newest motif is the octogon:

The white turned out to look a bit whiter than I hoped. Hopefully, it will all turn out okay in the end. It's kind of scary when you can only pick your MC, then colors A-D, but you don't get to decide where they go on the afghan--you just follow the directions that say, "make four of A, and two of MC" or something like that.

I haven't been working on my husband's sweater much this week. I've been doing a lot more writing lately. If you scroll down, you'll see! Oh, and yes, I acknowledge typos and the need for editing. Anything I did for my Coffee House Percolator group are supposed to be free writes, though most of us have a hard time posting absolute free writes, so I guess they end up being "rough drafts" with only minor editing.

That hat is going to be sooo cute! You kind of wish they had given a value suggestion on the colors, like dark, med dark, med, med light, light, etc. Sometimes the colors you choose make all the difference.
