W/Marge Simpson posting threads about Charity Crafting projects and other threads in the past, I know there are many of us here who do various crafts. I've been meaning to start a catch all thread ( ) for all of us to come in and chat about what we're currently doing/working on. Tonight I finally decided to do it.
I'm currently working on a baby sweater that's part of a knitted set for my "stash" of stuff I do for the Neo Natal Unit at the hospital in Sudbury. I knit my very first baby sweater last week and am quite proud of how it turned out. This one is a bit more difficult a pattern, but that's how you get better w/your skills, right? Besides, now that I've gotten the hang of knitting in the round, I decided it was time to give a baby sweater a try.
I've also got an easy peasy knitted in the round baby hat off to the side here too. Just to give myself a break every so often. Not to mention some of my tried and true Crochet baby hat patterns and the hooks needed to make those as well.
I've got a major Cross Stitch project I *really* want to get done, but I've been saying that for the last four years now. It would be one thing if everything didn't take up so much room, but when I have everything out to work on it, it takes up most of our Dining Room table space.
A good friend of mine from the online LOTR Community made me a copy of one of the programs you can create a Cross Stitch chart from a picture. It's of Liv Tyler as Arwen from The Return of the King and is a 12 page chart. Three pages down and four pages across and she's about half done. The joke in this house has been getting her finished, framed and on the wall is my Annual New Year's Resolution, but I really do want to get her done and started on another Cross Stitch piece.
Anyway...What's everyone else working on?
