What's Done Is Done
Throw in the towel.
Wave the white flag.
I have done what I can and leave only 3 (of 32) entries unfinished.
AND, I have a running start on two for next year!
What you see left is Mr. and Mrs. Claus, other, made of stuff I pulled from the scrap bag, some batting, and a couple of buttons from the button stash.
Christmas stocking of my own devising from pristine, brand new skeins of Red Heart Classic straight from the Tru-Value (yes, the hardware store).
Traditional patterning, basic sock pattern (36 stitches).
Mr. and Mrs. Snowman-other. Both these and the Clauses are from a Jean Greenhowe book. I've used the patterns before with varying modifications.
And now, I am putting my needles aside for a day (maybe) and warping my loom for nothing but a learning experience. No deadline, no pattern in mind, just zenning out on weaving.
Fair results (and a visit from the Tiny Prince who wants to see squirrels (they don't have those where he lives) and sheep in about 10 days. Can't wait!
