I think we've all done it. Gotten to the end of a project and then gotten distracted or bored or just busy. After the big Christmas rush, two of my projects just got put aside. I couldn't forget them because they were sitting there mocking me. This one was sitting next to the computer cabinet waiting to be sewn together. It was even blocked once. All I had to do was seam it up.
And this one was next to the bed staring at me every night. Almost done, just the button bands and the seams.
So when I couldn't stand the guilt any more I made myself sit down and just finish them. Here's the Peapod for Reese. In yellow this time.
And the Apres Surf Hoodie for me. This took a long time to knit but it wasn't really hard. Thin yarn on very small needles, but the lace pattern is easily memorized. The yarn is Beaverslide Light Sport Weight and it's a single ply. It's a bit coarse and has some stuff in it, I think it's straw or sticks or something. But when it's washed, it just blooms beautifully and is soft and a bit fuzzy but not too much to hide the stitch pattern. I love it.
And it's a good thing I finished Reese's sweater. She has officially outgrown all but one sweater that I've made her and Cherry Pie says she needs more. Poor baby has to wear store bought sweaters and my reputation will suffer.
