It is also a rare occasion where I have nothing left on my needles and have to start some new projects! I'm a little at a loss at the moment as to what to choose- I'm feeling a little exhausted so it might take me a few days to decide. This takes the mid-year tally to about 20 items - great time to pause! See below a picture of the finished Tiger Lily Tunic complete with buttons - apparently it fit the little recipient - hurray!
In terms of new beginnings, I learned to crochet this weekend! Well, when I say learn to crochet - it was making a chain, double crochet and treble with a friend teaching me with her beautiful yarn and lending me a great book and dvd. I ended up doing a bit of practice last night doing a little crochet flower and just a bit of double crochet. Not very impressive first attempts but I was thrilled to bits to actually be able to do it. Despite my knitting, I don't generally consider myself a crafty person and it is always a bit of a surprise if I get the handle on something! I don't think I'll become a regular at crochet but I'll be keen to try a few embellishments and nifty granny squares!
