Tying up the loose ends

Here I am, sitting at my computer, on my day's march nearer home. A lot of water has passed under the bridge and I have had a very exciting, satisfying life here in this scene. My garage shelves are full of started projects...sad to say I work on one and come to a glitch or something and just put it aside for another day. Yesterday I found an almost completed sweater vest I was making for Barry when he was about seven. I had made the neck hole too small, so ripped it out and it is waiting for me to make the shoulder parts longer and to do the ribbing around the neck and armholes. Alas, at thirteen he hardly fits it any more. I do have other grandsons who will fit it nicely. Then there is the pullover size four baby sweater made with directions I have misplaced. It started at the bottom...then the sleeves, then put together (in the round) It has little lambs knitted into the yolk and when I looked for pink to do the piggies, I could only find (here at home) some baby fine yarn. Even using two strands, it did not look right. Tnen I spilled coffee on it. Another project was put aside. I plan to finish it now without knitting in any more animals...plain pale blue will do just fine. My great grandchildren have blue eyes anyway, just Helena's are brown. I feel very noble today because I finally finished weaving the last square of my it comes to weaving in the hanging out tails.

Would you believe? our little back yard we have a brave daffodil blooming, defying the calendar, in all its shining yellow brightness?

Enough's time to get out needles and tackle some unfinished projects.

  • I know that feeling! I'm working on knocking off all my stored projects and trying not to start new ones unless they really "call me" or there is a birthday. Check out my ravelry site.
