Taaaaa Daaaaaa

See I have been knitting. I finished project! AND!!!!!! From start to finish done in less than a week. I started it last saturday and JUST finished it.

This sweater is being given to my cousin. Her shower is this Saturday, she is having a boy.

Ok brag time.....I am so incredibly impressed with myself. The knitting,

the time it took me to finish, the fact that I was determined enough to NOT pick up another project until this one was finished!

I also found some great antique buttons from my stash that just complete this sweater perfectly.

And the long awaited Trellis

This set got the most amazing reception at the shower it was given at. I was almost brought to tears actually. I think it was then I finally realized that I am a very very very good knitter. Until now I think I was being too modest but if you are really excelling at a craft you should really embrace that and be proud of the fact that you have mastered something.

Wow! Long time no post.

I have been working on a lot of projects as you can see below.

I am getting a stash of stuff together to sell at xmas bazaars this year. That is taking time of course.

I have been knitting. I still need to post a trellis picture. I finished the best fitting socks ever and I am working on an aran pullover now that needs to be finished by saturday for my cousin's baby shower.

Other than that I have been still freelancing from home. My mom's group started up again last month and being involved in that again after being gone almost 2 years is refreshing. Just being a stay at home mom. I also joined the Fly Lady list to get my home more organized.

So I guess you could say busy but staying at home never really "feels" busy. Maybe next year when Riley starts school. Ok more pictures to come.
