Some things actually get finished!

It occurred to me that I have a few things that have been mentioned in a post (or two) that have since been completed that haven’t actually been sighted since they were only a work in progress. Some I like, some – not so much!

And I’ve also been hard at work trying to perfect the pattern for the tote in my last post and adding a shoulder strap version to the mix.

I am fascinated with colourful things! Give me bright, bold colours any day of the week and I’m just in love. When my local Spotlight store started to stock an amazing yarn called “Bouvardia” – I went a little nuts and bought up large (yes, that’s my initial purchase in the picture – sadly, not my last!). (She who dies with the biggest stash wins, right???)
