A Well Recieved Gift

It is Sunday night and I have to say that I feel I have had a pretty productive weekend. There is nothing like ending the weekend with such a feeling of accomplishment. I hope to carry some of the good vibes over into the week (even if I am still on vacation).

Yesterday I mentioned that I had finished up the bunny for my niece. Well I brought it to her today, and I have to say that I was delighted with her reaction. I was prepared for her to open it and toss it to the side like most things toddlers receive, but instead she squealed with delight. She was even more entranced with the bunny once she realized that there was veggies that the bunny actually could eat.

As for my progress on the ancient WIP I found yesterday, I am happy to announce that I have sewn in sleeves and knitted the collar. I am still working on picking up the 275 stitches for the ribbing, but at least I am working on it. So far I am sticking to my goals for 2013, finishing those WIPs . I already have my next project planned out, which I think is the driving force getting these lingerers out of the way.

An Ancient WIP

Today was one of those days where nothing ever seems to go right, so therefore not much gets done. I have been working on crocheting a bunch of veggies for a bunny that I am giving to my 20 month old niece, for Christmas (Yes, I know it’s late…. but better late than never right?!). Well I was finishing up a cabbage when I started thinking ….Hmm, where did I put the little bit of left over orange I had. I looked around in the few baskets I have sitting by my computer desk, but couldn’t find it. So I have a brilliant idea, let’s look through the bins of stash.

Looking through my stash is not really as time consuming as I have heard others say. I have two plastic totes, neither of them are very large. I pull the totes out of the small closet behind my furnace and start rummaging. Still did not find the orange yarn, must be in the spare tote up in my bedroom closet. However, I did find a WIP in my stash tote. Not just a regular WIP, I would classify this as an ancient WIP! In the tote was a little girl’s cardigan that I was making for my sister who is now 21! I think this must be at least 16 years old! I tried it on my daughter and it looks like it might fit her in the spring , so now I am aiming to finish it up.

I will post pictures tomorrow of the rabbit and it’s veggies. By the time it was finished the natural lighting was gone.
