Finish line & a quest

Last Saturday I got the chance to do the finish work on a bunch of projects that have been sitting and stewing – they needed ends woven in and buttons sewn on, and a couple of wee monsters needed appendages. I was thrilled to get these all out of the ‘practically done but for the tedious bits’ stack. A couple of these still need blocking, but I could gift them now.

Rather than a single-file list of photos, I did a couple of group shots. First up: three sweaters for small folks and a knitted cuff / bracelet for a taller person:

And then a couple of hats and one little monster (the second one was busy hiding my sewing needle from me):

The best part is that getting these items off the to-do list freed me up to cast on new projects (as if I’ve ever had a problem justifying casting on something new regardless of the number of WIPs floating around the house). I’m on a quest for The Perfect Hat, one that stays on my head (long, thick, slippery hair) without having to be so tight that it gives me hat-hair. I’ve got several hats, but I find myself tugging them down frequently and that’s annoying. I’m thinking maybe a newsboy hat or perhaps a cloche, so I have one of each underway.

Felted Cloche – pre-felting. It’s ginormous!

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
