Two more projects done!

I've just finished 2 more projects from my list, I'm so glad they are done! The first one is the yellow baby blanket, I wanted to finish it this week so I could give it as a baby shower gift (among other things) to my son's fiancee for our granddaughter:



I'm also done with the Mystery Stole 4, aka: Serendipity, it's a big relief to have this one done, I had a lot of problems with joining the 2 halves, just couldn't do it the way it was explained so I finally did the Kitchener stitch, if you look really close you can see where it was joined but I figure if you can see it you're too close! This is not the best of pictures and there is some beads in matte gold but you can't really see them.



I'm still working on the "Two Dozen Rosebuds and Sweetheart scarf" I'm done with the first half and I started on the second half, its supposed to have a whole bunch of garter stitch rows in the middle but I thought I would try and just start knitting the chart again, looks good to me.



So, now I have to decide what else I'm going to finish from my UFO list or if I'm going to start on something new?!

Your better than me at getting stuff done! I am really impressed by the finished stole. I am going to try and finish a cashmere sweater today on the machine.

Hi Sylvie - thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you'll visit again :-) I, too, am finishing off all the projects on the needles before casting on anything else. St. Brigid is going to keep me pretty busy, however :-D

Hi, this is my first time here. And thanks for visiting my blog. I went through alot of your blog and MY GOSH WOMAN! You are really talented! I tried crocheting once, and the mis-shapen scarf was enough to make me try once more. And that one was worse, so I never did it again. But I saw how hard my grandmothers all worked to make numerous afgans that all their grandchildren cherished...which I'm sure the recipients of your lovely wares will cherish as well! Wow!
