Hooray, I just finished the CAL - The Stripey Afghan......... so full of lots of new stitches, that unfortunately play havoc with the edges of blanket....... I ended up deciding that a lap afghan if just fine and dandy!! It's not one I would do again, although I did enjoy learning new stitches and I will use those stitches in lots of ongoing projects........ just not all in the same afghan!
During the process, which is ongoing all this year on one of the Ravelry groups devoted to afghans, I found out about this wonderful little book........... and after a peek inside via the online pages.............. well, its one I will use a lot, so picked it up :) and loving it!!
So now its back to focusing on the knitting needles which have my woollmeiser hitchhiker scarf halfway in the making
And the little mouse will be a pincushion when she's finished ..... I thought I'd use up a scrap of fur fabric I've had sitting here for a bit waiting.......
Now I had planned to finish this post last night, but alas the power and the internet were both out..... we used to get power outs a lot more, so we are pretty used to them around here, so the candles are always kept in the same spot ready to go when needed......... does look like it could be time to get a couple more though!
