Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!

17 and counting down
This will be a very quick post................I think. I don't have any pictures for you today. Sorry about that. I am working very hard at a couple of things though.
I am making a shawl out of lace weight 100% silk yarn. I need to have it done and blocked before the wedding this coming Saturday! I am over half way done with it at this point. All my attention has been on that item and will be until the wedding is over.
I have also worked on the Snoqualmie Falls socks while on the road trip last weekend. Road trips are not a good place to try and work with lace weight yarn on slippery needles with lace patterns being worked. Socks are so much safer in the car.
I have not touched any of my other Christmas gifts for the past 2 weeks. Once the wedding is over, I will have time to concentrate on them again. Also, the weather here has cooled off a bit so I should be able to start back on the afghans and get those completed soon too.
That is all for now. I have to get back to my shawl. Pictures will be posted next week of the finished product.

Hope you get your shawl completed it time and yes socks would definitely be safer in the car. Looking forward to seeing all your projects once the wedding is over and enjoy!ReplyDelete
The wedding's next week?!!?! Yep, better get back to that shawl. If it were me I'd be planning a shopping trip too in case I didn't finish, but my fingers are crossed for you!ReplyDelete
Get back to the shawl!! I have my fingers crossed for you, I'm sure you will get it done and it will be amazing.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see this shawl. Enjoy the wedding, and wearing your own creation. :^)ReplyDelete
Good luck on finishing your shawl! I'm excited to see a photo. I've never knit with 100% silk, but I assume it's very slippery. I'd be too nervous about dropped stitches to try it. After you finish remember to enjoy the wedding ;)ReplyDelete
