I have none......apparently.
I said I was going to finish another Cherry Tree block before moving onto another project, but I was tempted by my knitting projects. I have been working on my Cherry Tree block though. Here's the proof.
Doesn't matter that I still have one more block and one border that I am behind, but that was my deal to myself before I could start knitting.
The first mistake I made was to go to the yarn shop and buy the needles that I needed for one of my knit projects.....then I said, "oh....I will just cast on my first row of stitches" and then it led me here.
I only have to stitch 8 inches worth before it is done.
Hard to believe that these 24" round needles will produce this Infinity scarf.
But I know once I start to bind off the stitches that are on the needles, this thing is just going to GROW!
Oh....and while I was at the yarn shop my eye was drawn to the shawl pins. I have always admired them, but just didn't have a need for one. Well, of course the variegated yarn I bought along with the infinity scarf yarn is for a shawl, so why not buy a scarf pin BEFORE you make the shawl. Well, that's my reasoning and I am sticking to it. Guess what I will be starting as soon as this infinity scarf is done?
Isn't it pretty? I figured shawl or no shawl, I just had to have it. It is fruitwood with an ebony inlay. Maybe it is like buying a pair of shoes that you just love and then having to go out and buy an outfit for it. What do you think?
and...during all this time, I finished another Elm Creek Quilts books, too.
Another good read.
Pays to have a day to yourself when you can do anything that you want. Actually, laundry doesn't count even though I squeezed that in today, too.
Hope you get to do what you want to do this weekend.
I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017. I got this pattern from a b...
Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so. The first on...
This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
