I’ve been busy DOING, instead of TALKING about doing! 😉
The above is another item crossed off my Christmas To-Do list. It’s pretty much done – it just needs minor last-minute fiddling with (the kind of last-minute fiddling that always needs to be done – weaving in ends and whatnot).
Then I did this – just a teaser pic, like I’ve been doing with most of these things.
I REALLY want a new camera. I don’t know if I’m just getting spoiled seeing photos from better cameras or if it’s really getting crappy or WHAT… but I can NEVER get the kind of pic I want the first time around. And sometimes I can’t get it at ALL.
Then there was this little beauty. It was a little tedious working on it – it’s all single crochet. But the finished product is SO worth it! The texture on this thing is amazing.
As soon as I finished it, inspiration hit. I decided I was going to make something for my MIL this year (first time ever!), but I couldn’t decide what. While gazing at my stash for a minute, this lovely rose-colored marled yarn I’d just bought a couple of days before started screaming at me: “Hat & Scarf set!! For Jackie!!” (no, sis, not you, if you remember, my MIL’s name is Jackie too. AND she’s got the same birthday as you!) So I’m designing my own. I’ll be writing up the pattern and offering it here (for free) as soon as I’m finished. Definitely within the next week, I’d say. I’ve already got the hat done, I’m just working up the scarf now.
So… that’s why I’ve been so quiet. My fingers have been busy!
