Well, here it is 'FO Friday' and I have sweet FA to show for it. **sulks**
Okay, not really sulking but wishing I planned ahead more than I plan in the middle! 'Smoke Rings' - NCM2016 #2 - is still at about 90% done and I'm at the mercy of Ravelry, waiting on Sellers. Failing that, the shawl is large enough to cast off now and call it for done. 'Ile d'Ecosse' - NCM2016 #3 - is also nearly complete and would be done if I'd not decided that I wanted to bead the border. The Toho Round Seed Beads 8/0's in 'Metallic Cosmos' should be here any day and hopefully, the FO will be worth the wait.
Stymied creatively, I wandered around my stash and Rav queue, looking for something to keep me occupied until I can get back to NCM and came up with some recently stashed Tosh merino light and a shawl pattern from The Yarniad - 'Pennae'. It's coming along nicely with a mod here and there so I don't die of 'garter-itis' and quellin…
Tons of new stuff in my Etsy shop. Counted cross stitch fans, I no longer stitch and have listed many OOP charts, kits and semi-kits. Some lovely discontinued yarns - Debbie Bliss, Sundara, Etc. plus ready-to-wear and KeiB Designs patterns.
