Sometimes starting a project is the hard part and sometimes getting started is easy and then it ends up on a self or in a project bag for what seems like forever.
Leading up to Christmas and New Year's my sister and I were working on a huge project. We did a yarn bombing in Spokane, for New Year's Eve called 'Sweater the Bus.' It was an amazing experience, plus we got to meet so many crocheters and knitters from the area and work together to pull off this community minded event. In addition, there was the normal Christmas preparations, which is a big deal in my family. I bake somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 dozen cookies in two days, followed by a cookie party and the family hosts a party on Christmas Day. It's a lot of work and even more fun.
Suffice it to say, I got very little, if any, knitting of my own done. And now we're a week into February. So, I've decided to pick 4 projects, plus one new one, to finish this month. Maybe get really close to finishing. We'll see.
Projects to finish
All I have left on my clutch is a bit or finishing and sewing. I need to sew the liner and add a handle, maybe, I haven't decided yet. I'm not a seamstress, in any sense of the word, so it'll be an afternoon for sure.
I'm about a third of the way through knitting this scarf. It's a fast fun knit, though. Easy to get into a groove.
This is the one I'm not sure I'll finish. I think I'm halfway through the infinity scarf and it's lace weight! I'm aiming high, this month.
Just finishing and blocking is left on my stocking. Duplicate stitch on the top for the name, sewing the cuff down and weaving in ends. It also needs an i-cord loop and it need to be mailed. It's half of the payment for our gorgeous logo design.
