Finish It Up Friday

Linking up again today at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday. Thanks to Amanda Jean for giving the motivation every week to have something done for a Friday post. Sometimes the week goes by and I feel I have nothing to show for it. These Friday posts really help me focus on what I've done this week and what I need to get done this weekend and next week.

One last scarf for my niece. This is the fourth scarf I've made her for her birthday. None of them are really meant to be warm, more an accessory she can wear all day - as requested. You can see the other scarves here, here and here.

Turned a pair of pants into shorts for my son. I have 4 more pairs of pants waiting for me to decide whether I am going to patch them or turn them into shorts. It's my goal this weekend to get them off my sewing table.

Here is the little pant ripper eating his after school snack yesterday. The weather has been beautiful here and I spent 2 hours on Sunday and 2 hours yesterday sitting outside and knitting. I am hoping to do the same today once the sun hits the back of the house. I spent most of my time outside working on my mom's cardigan. Her birthday is this coming Monday. So how close am I to being done?

I finished the left and right fronts on the weekend.

Finished the first sleeve yesterday and cast on the second. Finishing the second sleeve today - before lunch? - and then hopefully putting it together tonight. I'd like to have it in the mail tomorrow so wish me luck.

Took a little knitting break last night and finally did some quilting. 9 more blocks for the Oh My Stars QAL. I have 14 small blocks left and then I can start piecing the top together. 

I have also been working on the Mystery shawl hosted by Jen of Knitting Like Crazy on ravelry. She just released the second clue today so it isn't too late to join (the pattern is free). This is as far as I was able to get this week. Chart A, Chart B and then Chart A again of the lace pattern. I need to do Chart B, Chart A and Chart B again before I can move onto today's clue.... Chart C, done one time. Once I get my mom's cardigan done I think I'll be able to catch up this week.

Oh... and I read 2 novels this week. Maybe the cardigan would be in the mail by now if I didn't have my nose in a book so much? I finished the above book yesterday and I recommend it. It's a bit of a mystery, but also the story of a woman coming into her own after a divorce. I found my copy at the local library - I love the "New Books" shelf. 


  1. Wow, you sure have been busy! Great finishes!

  2. Love the high contrast stars!

  3. Busy week! Looks like you got a lot done, and that reading is necessary downtime, ya know. ;) Love that pretty scarf!
