Things started and things finished....

Well, I went to a crop this weekend and got 3 2pg layouts done so that was good. I finished my sock today at work....yes...work is a little slow. I started and finished in a week a baby sock. I still have to sew it together but it is done. I also finished my baby kimono from MSD book in purple I need to sew that one together too. But I did finish knitting it though so that was a good accomplishment this month. So unfinished object challenge is working.

Lots to blog about...

Not liking this winter idea....but it has warmed up a bit so I really can't complain.

I have been listening to Pixiepurls podcast. She found a blog that is encouraging everyone to finish some of those UFO's. So I will follow that. I have finally finished the baby kimono. Just have to stitch it up. So one down just another 7 or so to go.

Let's see what are my UFO's....

Irish cabled Hiking scarf
Bristow cardi..back is done bout half way on the left front.
Faorese lace shawl
A simple sock
prayer shawl in merino wool.

These are all that I can think of right now.
Wanted to get some scrapping books done too.
Cards to do and such.

Should also work on some dishcloths/washcloths. ..

There is always something I can find to do.
I have lots of cotton and some sock yarn in my stash to do something with have to work on that.

I will be working on Bristow predominately for the rest of the month. With a few rows of the Faro Shawl.

Will post pictures later.

New year, new blog.....

Well, it has been a busy week or so. Had an enjoyable holiday. The weather here has gone crazy. It is raining here in ND in January. Usually it is -20 or something and with some snow. We have the snow but rain....never at not as long as I have lived here. I have not kept up with the journaling my christmas very well. I have done to about Dec 10 but that is all. I will try to find time later and do it then. I did start knitting a shawl with a lace inset. It is coming along nicely. I do have ten other things I should be finishing but we all know how that goes. I am going to start doing the Artist's way and see if I can keep my creativity going. Let you know how it all goes.

Talk to you all later.
