So If You Think I Have Been Sitting Back Resting On My Laurels......

....you would be absolutely correct.  Since the costumes turned out pretty darn well, if I do say so myself, I have been taking it a bit easy on the crafting front.  However, one can only rest on one's "laurels" so long before one's "laurels" get sore, so......


meet the November Project of the Month.  Flannel pajamas!  How amazingly appropriate, don't you think?  There may have been a little peaking when drawing out of the project bin, but a project is a project.  The fabric is washed & I'm in the process of ironing it now.  In general, I love having a front-loading washing machine, but it can really turn long pieces of fabric into some serious knots.

Not forgetting about my Double Dog Dare challenge, the Kimono Shawl has moved to the forefront

The alpaca cardigan is super-close to being done, but I'm going to set that aside for just a little bit to see if I can channel the momentum to finish this project within November.  There are supposed to be 26 pattern repeats on the shawl, and I have done 16.  I think 10 in one month is a reasonable goal, and if I push myself, I could perhaps finish BOTH WIPS this month! 

See, I am getting much more reasonable as I get older.  There was a time when I would have believed I could finish all 14 of the remaining WIPS in one month......

Like, back in January perhaps......?
