Finally Finished


I finished the Shalom jacket that I started weeks ago. It was hard at first but with the help of you tube I was able to power through. It looks bit wonky but I'm sure it will be fine once its washed and it looks OK on.
I'm pretty chuffed that I did finish it and now I cant wait to start a new project. Knitting and Crocheting is keeping me sane. I love quilting as well but when your not well enough to be going from the sewing machine, to the iron to the cutting table just being able to sit and still craft is wonderful.
with the cold weather well and truly here hand made knits are a bonus for the wardrobe!
see ya

Cool, I like that!

As far as knitting and crocheting keeping a person sane - great idea! One year when I was babysitting for 3 along with my 4 I knitted and crochet about 10 sweaters during Christmas vacation and no one died.

Very pretty. I, too, enjoy knitting and crocheting to relax. :)

Bryhn wonky means not straight, but slightly out of shape. And chuffed me spans proud of myself. Leanne i hope the herbalist is able to find something to help abbey. And yes no one is in danger because we are knitting, unless the upset me while I have the needles in my hands lol.
