Fear of finishing June 17, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 8:55 am


Is it truly a "fear of finishing" that prevents us from running in those ends or sewing up corners?  Truthfully, I don’t need this finished till August but still…it is done!  I knit it with Saucy Cotton based on the Debbie Abraham’s book 100 Afghan Squares to Knit.  I knit the squares in strips and generally did my own thing and saved about $400 by not using Rowan Denim.  While I don’t love cotton to knit with–this was an enjoyable project.  I would like to do another one–eventually–using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.

Granny very kindly presented me with a gift the other day…wanna peek?Blankie_done_029  The wrapping paper Blankie_done_030 was very creative…Yup, those are wee wee pads!  Inside…some fabulous salad spoons from Tanzania–when Granny went on safari.  Those will be awesome for the weekly Stitch n’ Bitch.                                                                 Blankie_done_031

    it’s just lovely Katy, I’ve written down the yarn in a file I keep for ref. I’m a bit of a cotton whore I’m afraid.

    You are what I consider to be a good mom. So, there ya’ go. “mom” — not all mother’s deserve the title “mom”.
