I am still staying firm with my finishing marathon.
I have even gone so far that I have finally sewn a button on my Summer Sunset Shawl.
Now it is all ready just in time to be utterly useless in the Winter cold. Sorry Sis! I hope you will enjoy it when the weather warms up again. This Shawl will be delivered (hopefully) by me when I (hopefully) will visit my parents this Winter.
The second project I finished was a pair of Cranberry Delight Slippers for my Mom. I used my Amazing Siberian Slippers Pattern for them.
Now I need to knit a pair for my Dad and my Grandma. Oh and I, myself need a pair too, since DH has appropriated mine. Did I mention the kids…
OK, Madame Zoe sees “lots, lots more slipperz in your future”. Darn it! I wish I could put the Gypsy accent in writing!
By the way, talking about darning. Now this is something I am ideologically opposed to!
But a knitter got to do, what a knitter got to do! And when I discovered that one of my favorite socks developed this
I knew I would have to do something. I contemplated a tutorial in darning then decided that it would be much more easier to re-knit the toe than to learn how to darn things, that is other than verbally.
So, I frogged the toe, put the stitches on the needles about 5 rounds under the hole and knit myself a new toe.
Today I am going to tackle the vest I made for DH’s birthday. Last year. I have finally found perfect “manly” buttons for it. And then I need to weave in the ends… DH sits right next to a huge window in his office and now, with the weather turning cool this vest will definitely see lots of use. That is if I stop procraftinating and get to work!
