Acorns is Finished
32 ct. Belfast Linen
This was such a fun one. I love squirrels anyway, and this time of year they are so busy running around outside and acting silly in the leaves that it was fun to be watching them and to be stitching one at the same time.
This makes my 11th finish this year so far. Five of them were Little House or Country Cottage Needleworks designs, so you can tell where my focus has been. These are such fun designs, I love the size and colors, as well as the lack of backstitching and partial stitches. This past year has been so hectic in many ways that not dealing with backstitch (which I really dislike) and partial stitches has made stitching time more enjoyable.
If you don't count the scarf I knitted last year I had 12 finishes. My goal this year was to have 1 more finish than last year, with a couple of larger pieces in the mix than in prior year. I've already met the part of doing some larger pieces. With my Acorns finish, I just need two more to meet the doing one more part. I have time off at Thanksgiving and Christmas, so getting two more done (as long as neither is to large) is certainly doable.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and safe travels to all of you that will be traveling over this holiday.
