Needlework Tuesday - Those Flying Fingers
Over this past week, my fingers have been ever so nimble and they have been flying along the yarns. I love when I see the projects growing before my eyes. I don't finish big projects all that often, and now that I am seeing these one nearing their end, I am getting excited.
I have started pattern 10, Star Stitch. At first it seemed a bit daunting with a 'purl 3 together' in every wrong side row, but those actually are going very well. It's a four row repeat and I need to do nine in total. Looks like I have three completed at this point.
I had a hard time putting down my snowflakes. I'm almost finished row four. Yippee. Two more after that, well, I do have to stitch the filler motifs as well, but they go rather quickly. Good thing I bought seven skeins of the multi coloured yarn. I just started the second ball of white, but am almost through with the fourth ball of the multi.
What are you up to this week? Anyone making ornaments? I did some crochet ones many years ago and haven't attempted any since. I would love to see photos of your stitched ornaments.
