Wow, I’ve never known Startitis to culminate in Finished Objects quite so quickly! Cold days outside make for good knitting and crafting days inside.
Finished my green vest and boy do I love it! I need to put a zipper in, but I couldn’t resist wearing it today anyway. I have a brown zipper, but I want to go to the fabric store tomorrow night and find a green one if possible.
I also made a nice tatted pendant that happens to go well with the new vest. It’s from Boutique Tatting by Marilee Rockley; a book I received from my honey for Christmas. I got the beads at Galena beads and it took me an hour to pick out a handful of beads. I’m hopeless and just agonized over the colors and having just the right beads for the project. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this pendant. Mom saw it today and suggested what colors she would like to have!
And then I also finished my lace scarf last weekend. I wore it to work one day but forgot to take a photo of it. So, three big projects finished in the space of about 10 days. I finally cast on for Ted’s socks today, but I haven’t gotten my bobbin lace project going yet. That’s next on the list. I also have the beads to make some tatting earrings out of the book and I’m looking forward to making them.
