One is the loneliest number...

I did promise an update on some of my projects, but then promptly forgot to charge the battery on my camera. Ooops!

In the meantime, here's one of the projects I've been working on (courtesty of smartphone camera - the picture does not do it justice). Twelve Christmas Tea Towels by Crabapple Hill. I've got to get stitching to get these done and mailed out in time for the holidays, but they're so fast that it shouldn't be a problem.

Now, if I could just finish up the many other UFO's that are dangling around. I think I really need to put together a list and see what's doable and what's not.

I have decided that there are a few projects that it is time to part with, either to the frog pond or elsewhere. My Mimbres Vest is one of them. It's probably 85 - 90% done and no matter how I try, I have absolutely no desire to finish it. I don't want the yarn for anything. I think we just have to say goodbye. I don't, however, want to throw it in the trash, so I'm mulling on it's fate at present.

Do you have any projects that you know you're done with? not ones that you think you might come back to, but projects that are similar to that boyfriend in college that you're over, it had it's time, but you've moved on and grown, and know you're no longer a fit?

Beautiful...I've purchased some crabapple hill patterns before, they are lovely. You'll have to show all of the when you get them done!

That's the perfect description of a unloved project! I don't have anything at the moment but when I do I tend to rip and save the yarn.

The tea towel is really neat, I can't wait to see the set.
