Good news and bad
The good news is I have some long overdue finished objects to report. My friend Gayle invited me over for a finishing day yesterday. She should do this more often as it really works for me!
To the right we have a lace scarf and a little beaded purse. The scarf was knit long time ago. The fringe is supposed to have a bead on each one. I had beaded one end but then never finished the other! Then I couldn't find the matching beads. So Gayle suggested removing the beads already on there. Viola - finished. The little purse was a sampler from a bead knitting class I took a long time ago at Knitter's Day Out. I'll use it as a tree decoration now that its finished.
And to the left, the sampler from the Danish Skråtrøje class I took with Beth Brown-Reinsel at the local guild years ago. I'd put one of the sleeves in sideways and put it aside fed up. So yesterday I took out the bad sleeve, sewed it back in along with the second sleeve, crocheted the neck edge and viola once again.
The bad news, looking at my list of resolutions for this month I'm rather apprehensive about finishing any of them. The wristers are started, but in black silk they're very hard to work on and definately not train material. Plus I didn't factor in the week I was in the UK and didn't even bother to bring any knitting because I knew I wouldn't have much free time.
Oh well, I still have some time and a long weekend coming up. Though I have to 'fess up that I'm planning a wee yarn crawl on Friday with a couple of friends.
