Here is Piglet, all done!  I finished him on Saturday, September 10th.  I have to put my initials in there, but other than that, he’s all done. 



What I am working on now:




Yep, that’s my daughter and that is the hat I knitted for her.  I started it Sunday night and finished it during my lunch time on Monday.  I then started another one, which I finished today at lunch.  I haven’t taken a picture of it yet.  I’m using the loom thing for it, and it goes pretty fast, but on the one I made for my DD, it seems like the stitches are kinda far apart.  I’m going to see if I can fix that.

Tomorrow I think I am going to start gridding my fabric for Ruh.  (Unleashed by Anne Stokes).  The knitting is awesome, and I am enjoying the different hobby, but I think that for now, until I get better at actual knitting (which I am slowly learning while teaching myself off of youtube), I will stick to cross stitching at my lunch time.

What hobbies do you have?

Stitchy stitchy stitchy! Piglet has a body and one arm. So one more arm and his legs to go, and then the wording and the backstitching. The good thing is that the back stitching isn’t as bad as Eeyore, so I am not dreading the backstitching at all on Piglet. I am hoping to get some work done on him this weekend, but every time I want to, I never do. But the closer I get to being done with him, the closer I am to restarting Ruh.
My MIL surged the edges of my black fabric for Ruh, so that is all ready. I am seriously considering gridding it as well, but I am not 100% yet.
Well I hope everyone has a stitchy filled weekend! TAYS!
