This is how I spent a good portion of the week...
Curled up with the Jim. Every time I got up, Jim stole the heating pad.
I got the neckline done...that required a new skill...picking up and knitting stitches.. The neckline is fine...but I have issues with nice, neat, bind off stitches. I am going to have to practice a bit more to get them even before I try another neckline!
Attaching the sleeves was next...
I really wanted to start socks...Everyone is joining the sock KAL hosted by cwtch and I wanted too... but I CANNOT stand starting a new project while I have WIP's..
but I did anyway...I got this far..
really nice yarn and needles..now to find an easy pattern...this will be my 1st pair..
they original cost was 85 cents...!
I love finding old knitting supplies..most of my needles are from the thrift store.
I also tried working with crochet thread for the 1st time..again..I have a terrible time anticipating these projects as being ridiculously hard..things I will probably fail at...only to discover..meh..not so bad. I was making snowflakes and finished the
wreath in time to present it to my wonderful MIL for her birthday yesterday...
balls of left over yarn, crochet snowflakes, attach to a frame..and ta dah!
Wishing all my sista's at the YOP, and everyone else for that matter..a safe and happy week!
Hopefully, I'll feel better and get back to full steam by the next update..
