I went out and bought yarn this weekend. It went against what I'd promised myself at the beginning of the year: No more yarn until I get some of what I already have knit up!
Welllllll. I want to make myself a sweater and I came across a great sale. So I bought it! But I told myself I wouldn't begin the sweater until a few of my current already begun projects were finished. So that's what I spent a big part of my weekend doing:
This large thing was supposed to be one of a pair of placemats. I began this in August. It is HUGE and took FOREVER. I wasn't about to make another one. But it is big enough to act as a smallish table runner that will be used as a hot mat.
This is one of two "Ripple's in the Sand" dish cloths I whipped up this weekend as gifts.
And this is my little "Grumpy Bear" made for my little one. I think I love him more then she does! There's nothing sweeter then finishing up some projects....unless it's the thought of another project to begin!
