Remember that stocking I was knitting for the grandson of a co-worker?
I am happy to report that is it DONE!!
Yep, finished. Sewn together. Ends buried, clipped and hidden!
I delivered it yesterday morning, and granddad is pleased and impressed.
So I pitched in so the last grandson wouldn't be left out.
My knitting is a different gauge. My KLEIGH stocking came out much larger than her last 'KREWE' stocking, by about 2 inches. But at least Kleigh is no longer left out.
I'm feeling kind of virtuous. I know, I should get over it.
In return for all that knitting, I am the recipient of mom's stash, or at least a good portion of it. She had about six UFOs of her own. I'm blown away by her fair isle knitting. There are several projects with very intricate patterns.
- A blue cardigan with Raggedy Ann and Andy knitted in
- A brown cardigan with an owl
- A pink sweater with beautiful cables
- A pink carriage robe in a lace pattern
- A purple vest
- A white rug with an eagle outline in blue
So my dears, the lesson here is this:
TRY to finish up some of your UFOs! You don't want the people who are going to have to deal with your stash to have to take a chance on finding someone who will appreciate your stuff!
So Ruth, when you get to the other side and you know what's what again, know that I appreciated your work.
