One A Day Tuesday Tallies (13 December 2011)



This week I have been working on Christmas presents.  Some I can show and some I can't.  My main priority has been this scarf which needs to be finished for Thursday night.  I have used Stylecraft Special Aran in charcoal.

I was a little annoyed with myself as I used too many stitches and after 20 rows it was clear the scarf was too wide and I had to frog it all back to the start.  I re started it on Saturday afternoon and by Monday night it was completely finished,  all 90 rows crocheted:


It's been a long time since I completed a crochet project and this is actually my first ta da on my blog.  I really need to concentrate on completing a few things over the next few months.

I have not really followed the one a day rules this week but with the run up to Christmas coming at me like a run away train every little bit of normality has gone right out of the window, not that there was much to start with but I'm sure you all know what I mean.

Pop on over to Gingerbread Girl and have a look at all the other one a day projects.

How wide is the scarf? I have some that are skinny, for decoration, and some that are wide, for warmth, and like them both.

Congrats on your first completed project, blogwise. :)

I love the scarf, you finished it really quick. I think that everyone is racing to finish things at the moment.

Congratulations on your first blog 'Ta dah'! It feels good doesn't it! Looking froward to the ta-dah moment always spurs me on. What a shame to have to undo the scarf.. but it will be worth it :)x
