craft on Friday

I know I only post here once a week (for now, I really have so many things I want to talk about with you…), but I was so close to missing it again. I have a good excuse, maybe, I’m on the east coast visiting family and we’re having a great time painting VanGogh’s and spending time together. I’ll talk more about that another time, it was so much fun, but for now I want to remind everyone to spend time with those you love. Write notes, send a text, make a call, visit. Do it, it’s important.

Anyway, crafting.
I’m still working on my not so secret project. I haven’t worked on it since I left on Tuesday cause I started on the lace section and I’ve got to pay attention. Distractions are not OK for this knitting and distractions abound here. A bit of the lace panel for your viewing pleasure.

It’s really a joy to knit and I can’t wait to show you the whole piece. My plan is to have it completed within the next couple of weeks, maybe…

In other knitting news I’ve made some progress on the vanilla sock. I turned the heel on the plane and have started the leg.

It’s coming along and I’m thinking I might be able to start the second sock before I leave here on Tuesday, maybe…

I don’t have any updates on Santa because
a) I’ve been working on the not so secret project
b) I’m on the other side of the country and couldn’t take a picture of it even if I wanted to

But I can show you this cross-stitch project that I finished at the end of last year and brought with me as a gift for my sister. This is the Big Zipper by Bent Creek. It’s humongous. For scale and if you have good eyes you can see the needle at the bottom middle.

Tomorrow we’re taking it to be framed. I’m excited to see it truly complete.

Well, it’s midnight here, but I’m fairly certain I have my settings set for the west coast and it will look like I really did post this on Friday, maybe.

  1. nice to hear you are on the east coast. Hope all families are well. You make me glad to know that I am not the only other 30something with various craft projects in just as many stages of work!

    1. trust me, we’re not the only ones… for the past two years I’ve been working on pairing them down though I’m pretty sure any non-crafter would look at my still remaining list and shake their heads in pity 🙂
