I recently read the second book in the Belles & Whistles series so when I saw the first book "Wedding Belles" at Ollie's I snatched it up.  I've been reading it while waiting for the girls at school pick-up and I'm loving it!

Other than keeping an eye on the weather, I haven't really watched any TV this week :(

What I am creating at the moment::::

I've been working on the Holiday Cable Throw using Red Heart Super Saver in "Mushroom".

Part #1

Part #2

I'm debating on whether or not to continue with this.  I'm having difficulties with Part #3 and am growing discouraged.  I'm thinking about returning the unused skeins and getting yarn for a different more colorful project.  What do you think?

From the Camera:::

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

  1. I've been doing quite a lot of weather watching too. I want to travel 250 miles one way over our Christmas break and need good weather. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. I agree; return the unused and get something that makes you smile so you can knit something that makes you happy.

  3. You do such lovely work and 'Demelza' was such a beautiful creation and so colourful. I agree that returning the unused portion and doing a colourful project instead would give you joy; especially if your are feeling discouraged.

  4. While I love the color up there, it is probably a good time of year to choose something a bit more colorful and cheerful. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  5. I think you're knitting project looks lovely. I wish I could needle knit but so far loom knitting and I are the ones who see eye to eye lol. Happy holidays!
    Here's my It's Monday! post.

  6. If you're not really into the project (and since it's a large project) I say return the skeins and start on something new. Otherwise it's not going to be very fun to knit. IMHO.
