Finish Line Up Ahead.......

Cleo Drops

Look - it starts to look like a piece of clothing ;)
My Cleo is finally entering the finishing phase!
It has sleeves and I have moved along onto the first rows of the yoke!

Drops Cleo

I didn't think I would manage any knitting this week as I have been really busy creating other goodies for my Etsy Store as you can see below, but it just goes to show, a little cold weather and then knitting fervor sets in - "Quick finish this jersey - everyone needs socks, scarves, hats and gloves" ;) 


I love Wednesdays!!

From week to week I always feel motivated to move just a little closer to finishing off a project - what are the alternatives? Parading the same image week after week or leaving Wednesdays out? Definitely not, I love my Wednesdays, I get to visit some amazing people and brag a little about my progress along the way! It has become my measure of success, my motivational tool. 

Do you see your Wednesdays as something similar or is it just a tick of mine?

Reading wise: Finished "Life of Pi" yesterday, just in time too - our book club will be taking place next Friday again so it has been nice to finish it and be able to digest the book a little before next week.

My Book review will follow our next meeting. If you are a fast reader or are busy reading this title I hope you will consider joining us next Friday (20th September) for our LIVE Online Book Club :)

The book to have moved onto my bedside table is "Gone Girl"

  5. Wow, Cleo looks great! And isn't it lovely to be at that part where rounds decrease in size, LOL?!

    Good luck putting Gone Girl down; that's all I have to say!

    1. Hi Minding My Own Stitches,
      It is so lovely to be that far, and after all the rip backs, I am glad to be nearing the end!
      Oooh is the book that good, maybe I should sneak to bed earlier tonight! With this weather that shouldn't be such a problem.
      Thanks so much for visiting.
