I've been in a frenzy of "finishing things". Projects that were long and hard... or long and boring.
This is the "Afghan from --ll" that, in the beginning, I had to take out as many stitches as I could leave in.
I can honestly say this project took me to the next level of knitting. I have graduated to low-intermediate. It allowed me to complete the Clara dress with hardly a glitch. I like things that take us to the next level... rarely are they accomplished without some angst, however.
This project had been hanging around like a noose for about five years; and, I really did very little of it. My friend, Dee, put in the hard work. I just finished up a few squares around the edge and the face, blocked it and it is now ready to put on a frame. Then it will really be finished.
I know this picture is a blur! I couldn't manage to figure out how to change the seconds of delay on my timer and I was too bent on FINISHING my photos to go find the manual. Boo hiss! This is prayer shawl I started while in Dallas keeping Little Man last fall during his mom's work time.
I am glad to have cleared these things out of my bin of things-left-unfinished. I think my urge to complete them has something to do with my urge to complete some unfinished business within myself. Don't our lives usually reflect our inner workings?
My camera had been in Longview for a week... left behind at out last gathering with Little Man and his folks before they headed home. This was the wonderful surprise I had when I downloaded my photos from this morning... a last photo his mom must have snuck in for me. Thank you for the lagniappe, Amanda. =)Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...
