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.
Lacy, open work, crocheted cowl in creme and rose.
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!
Wear just inside the boot, or folded over like this….they add a layered look without wearing heavy socks.
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
