I have been crafting this week, honestly…I just only have one picture to show.
This is the Rose Blanket, I’ve one more dark pink square to go and then I’m onto the light pink.
This is going more slowly than expected mainly as the main project for this week has been my parents wedding anniversary sampler.
It needs to be finished and framed in two weeks and well the main part is nearly stitched but I still have two side panels to design never mind stitch so you can see why little progress has happened on other things.
I really would like this done, ordering the frame has turned into one of those never ending sagas of one drama after another and the frame is needed so I can frame as soon as I’m finished. Then add into that my Mom nearly catching me with it in my hand, it was a mad scramble of hiding it rather quickly. She’d have spotted straight away that is was something to do with her as the pictures I’ve stitched are relevant to them.
Anyway enough with the drama, hopefully by next weekend I’ll be telling you I’ve it finished and am just waiting for my parents to see it before I show it off here…well here’s hoping.
I have been working on my list and I now have a problem… can you see the recurring theme this week?
I seem to have made two lists! Yes two!
Both are so different to each other,
One is pretty typical of what the last three years have been i.e projects picked and put into category’s it’s long and ambitious and it’s full of creativity and areas for me to just let loose and design and create, so you see pretty much like normal.
The second is to work from a certain book full of patterns and it’s no less ambitious due to the amount of projects in it, I may have to set a limit on the amount of projects I aim to complete from out of it. It’s completely different to what I’ve done for the last three years and in that sense it’s a little more exciting, it has challenges and processes I’ve not actually done before in knitting, I dont’ think insurmountable ones but certainly ones I’ve not done before.
Now you see my dilemma, how to choose…
I need to decide somewhat lively so I can have yarn for the first few projects, the first few projects on both lists need yarn purchased for them oh the hardship of stash enhancing 😀
By all means throw your six and eight pence worth into the ring on which list in the comments.
