January's end

Hello dear ones. I can hardly believe tomorrow is the last day of January. And that writing and saying and hearing "2010" is now old news. I'm here to squeeze two last finishes in for the month...which will bring my total to 15! I know, I can't believe it. Can you tell that right now is our "quiet" time of the year? The crazy hectic schedule will be gearing up very soon so I must take advantage while I can, lol ;)



Here Comes the Sun
by Bent Creek
BH&G Cross Stitch & Needlework, June 1998
fabric: 32ct "staci-dyed" linen
fibers: recommended DMC


I've had this pattern for a very long time, just could never decide what color I wanted to knit it in. So when Jolene's surprise showed up with the exact yarn called for, I figured it was serendipity! I'll take better pics after I've taken the time to block it :)

Thermis by Kristen Patay

pattern found here (ravelry link)
size: sm/med
yarn: Patons Classic Wool, color #77425 Woodrose Heather
needles: size 7 circular


Well dearies, that's it for me today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend full of everything you love. As always, thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for all your sweet comments :)

Staci,
I just love your knitting and that colour is gorgeous. You are going to be cuddly and snug in that :>)

Here Comes the Sun is a lovely cheerful and optimistic little design - just right for chasing the grey clouds away. I'm already humming the old Beatles tune :>)
