A few stitches

Working on a new cross stitch gift for my sister while the wee one sleeps.



new toque

I finished a toque for myself.  Once again, I don’t really like it, but I’m not ripping it out.  It’s supposed to be long and slouchy…turns out I think that looks dumb on me!  Oh well.  It’s super soft and will keep my head warm as long as it’s not too windy.



I might be able to wear it folded over in back so I don’t look like I’m trying too hard:


We’ll see how much I actually use it this winter!

The pattern is Elizabeth by Jane Richmond.  I love most of her designs and once again her pattern was well written, easy to execute and very satisfying.

I’m hoping to update this space at least once a week.  I have several projects on my list to do before Christmas and look forward to documenting them here.


Until next time,
