Not sure which is more fun for me; finishing projects or starting new ones? I’m thinking the finishing is more fun, as it is a certainty. The project is done. I love the detail work at the end of a knitted or crocheted piece. And, a slot on my mental list of projects is magically opened up!
When starting a new project, I tend to go through a few false starts. Often starting with the yarn I want to use….then, deciding what I would like to “see” the yarn become…..and finding an existing pattern, or creating from my head….. Not an easy task for me. I think I start at least a couple times for each time I truly get a project out of the fiddling around stage.
Here’s a crocheted cowl that has been stuck at the finish line for months. Stuck on the buttons. These plain creme colored ones finally passed muster and I can say the cowl is DONE.
Trying to add to the shop before the holiday shopping season, my hope is to have a range of colors of these boot cuffs. Knit with a ribbed design, one size does fit most!
On the needles:
My ever present pair of socks for me. Still on Sock #1…..almost to the ball of the foot. My things take a back seat when it comes to projects
Always, but always have a Mary Poppins inspired scarf on the needles. Who knew this would be my best seller in the shop?
Crocheted hat in winter white; Still on the crown area, Need to work on this when I’m not visiting with someone….at least until I get the increases done!
Crocheted baby blanket using the Blackberry Salad pattern. Slow go, due to the all over bobble design
