Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

I have pretty much a week left to finish my dad’s Cthulhu mittens- I’ve decided in the interest of my sanity that I won’t attempt to also make him a card- I’ll save that for Father’s Day! However, I started them a week ago (after buying more yarn) and so, I would’ve liked to have one finished by now…nope. However, I am more than half way through, and I’m about to start the decreases, so the rest shouldn’t take too long (yeah, I know- famous last words!)

(I’m showing the palm of this one because I showed the back the other week, and thought that another one might be a bit boring, since I haven’t changed anything!)

It probably would be finished by now, except that one of my housemates is leaving soon, and so I wanted to make her a card, for everyone to sign. So that has been taking up most of my free time. But now all the cross stitching has been finished, so I just need to finish off the backstitching (wohoo!)

Digital StillCameraWell, back to the cross stitching station for me! Does anyone have any good tips about finishing things a decent amount of time before they’re needed? πŸ˜›

  1. The back of the mittens looks just as gorgeous as the front, on most mittens/gloves with a design on the front, the back ooks boring but these look great! The little airy looks so sweet as well, hope the backstitching doesnt take too long, you sound snowed under with projects! πŸ™‚

  2. the Intarsia (knitting) looks great, i always love blue and white colours.. the cross stitch fairy looks beautiful too.. just wondering where did u purchase the pattern? would love to learn more about other designers out there. πŸ˜‰
