I finally, finally finished the advent calendar!!!! Oh man I was beginning to think I would never finish it! The idea was from this Thanksgiving one from the Moda Bake Shop and I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas one! And, it was fun - just took forever! It will be good to have it ready for next year!
Next up is this wreath - I saw the idea on the blog Vacuuming in High Heels, only that one I think was all white and I thought it would be fun and pretty in pink for Valentine's Day. I haven't glued on the hearts yet, but I think I might. I'm also thinking I will trim the edges to make them a little more even. I think it will look cute on the front door, it will be fun to come home to it for me, anyways!
Next is a project in process. I have been soooo intimidated by double pointed needles and haven't tried anything in a round knitting-wise because of it! But, I think I'm over it! I went into the yarn shop a few weeks ago and the nice lady in there showed me a little bit how to cast on and divide the stitches. Then yesterday I watched a tutorial online and realized exactly what I had been doing wrong that it didn't make sense! I was backwards! Instead of knitting on the outside of the stitches I was on the inside. Argh! No wonder it didn't look right! None of my books showed any detail past casting on and dividing the stitches, I guess it should be obvious where to stitch??? Anyways, I am so excited because as you can see, I am about halfway through my first fingerless mitten!! Of course I post the finished product when it's done!
