Wow, this is already my 150th post!!!
First off, some belated x-mas greetings:
I'm not one for much christmas decoration in my place (heck, I don't even have a tree), but every year I set up this little group on top of my TV (of all places). The cute thing about this is that this is part of a puzzle and all pieces fit together in a really small box.
We are not much into christmas presents either. I did get a lovely, home-made bird feeding station from my nephews, but the birds haven't shown any interest in it so far. If they ever do, I'll be ready with my camera.
However, as my sister mentioned that she wanted some wrist warmers (in black, if you please) I quickly whipped a pair up.
The pattern is inspired by Rose's wrist warmers, which I found on ravelery. I did a couple of modifications, mainly because the yarn I used was a bit thicker than the one the pattern called for. I ended up with one extra, so in case my sister should ever grow a third arm (left please) I'm prepared. This third one (or rather the first one) was for testing the pattern and I decided, based on it, to change a few more things.
Other than that I've indeed went back to the Castle Sample for one last push to finish the monster.
This is from before christmas, to mark the point when I finally finished the border - including all back stitches. Go me!
Since then I've finished the three musicians and the background around them (except at the bottom), but not the back stitching there. This will be my next task.
After then all left to do is the stitching lady on the right hand side and I'm done, done, DONE!!!!
