Finally - an Update!

Fear of not remembering how to do this blog thing is my lame excuse for not updating. Today I have the time & determination to!  There have been a number of blog-worthy events but the most recent was getting to visit in Atlanta during 2 days of snow! And do I have pictures of it? No!  Next year I intend to do better.  I can include pictures of a few relatively recent Finished Objects, 1 a gift and 3 for me (does that sound bad?).

These 2 are the Lacey Baktus design (free pattern on Ravelry); the top one from Jitterbug, the bottom from Misti Alpaca:

This is a Just Enough Ruffles scarf (I labeled the photo Too Many Ruffles by mistake in my photo album...Freudian slip...because it goes from 200 to 600 stitches at the end!!). Hard to tell that it's a beautiful chartreuse & other greens colorway.

This is a personal favorite using Classic Elite Hand Painted Liberty wool & the CE design named Molly; it's a wonderful blend of sunrise colors...gray, crimson, purple, blue & yellow:

I plan to post some pix of my counted cross-stitch WIPs.  No finished objects to report in awhile. Goal is to finish Villages of Hawk Run Hallow in 2011. It's 1/2 way there now.

Wishing everyone a Happy & Blessed New Year!


  1. Have I said your kitties are cute? They're cute! Love all your knitty goodness! My favorite is the hand painted scarf. Happy New Year!

  2. Isn't a few days in snow just wonderful! Much easier to visit than live in though. Wonderful finishes. I have no doubt that you'll finish VoHRH next year!

  3. Kris - glad to see you managed to create a post ! See it's not too hard - just keep posting in 2011 - LOVE all your finishes - I'm glad to see those lacy baktus(es) - I have that one que'd in RAV - Hope 2011 is full of fun for us all. Hugs mel

  4. Beautiful finishes. . . also have that pattern que'd in my Fav's!!!
    Happy New Year and lots of stitches in 2011.
    hugs, henri
