This weekend was about finishing projects so I could start new projects. I spent all of Knit Night knitting
brains for my 'thinking cap'. I am very nearly finished and will be able to start my next project, mittens, soon. Friends gave me a beautiful yarn bowl for my birthday and I already have it loaded up with the new project yarn. It killed me to not be able to start it last night but I should be able to finish with the brains tonight.
We are having an art opening at work in December and the Employee Art Challenge is to decorate a lab coat. I wanted to get it started, but there was the small problem of this guy...
I did this back in April all except for coloring in the border. It was so mind-numbingly tedious, that I put it in time out and forgot about it. Since I wanted to put it in the art show, it had to be finished before the lab jacket got started. So I spent 6 hours finishing the border and then shading the giraffe, but I finally finished! I am disappointed that I did this one before I learned to open up my patterns and was still drawing a lot of stuff micro-sized. It might be worth a redo in the future, but without the border!
Anyway, I was proud of what I got accomplished in and around barn duty and other volunteer stuff this weekend. How did your weekend go?
