Now onto the fun stuff. I've finished page 1 of Treasures SK SAL and I'm really happy with the result.
I decided I wanted to keep on stitching until I'd finished the page rather than rotating a piece each week and it feels really good to have a finish (even if it is only a page finish!).
I'm also really pleased as well as I have been gridding with Sulky metallic thread in dark blue. Up to now I haven't completed enough of a project to be able to take the gridlines out but on Treasures I have now taken the gridlines out and I'm pleased to say the thread came out very easily and didn't leave any marks behind. So if I can get away with it on a project with so much white I am sure it will be fine on all my other projects.
So the stats for this project are 7,350 stitches completed which is 26.49% complete.
So this one can go on the back burner now until I get the next page which I don't think is until September so I'll have plenty of time to get some stitching done on my other WIPs.
I've also started knitting a blanket for my best friend who is expecting her third baby. It is a design called Sampler Blanket by Debbie Bliss and I have treated myself to the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino wool to knit with. It is absolutely gorgeous to knit so soft and lovely. I may have to keep the blanket for myself in the end!
I'm not sure if I mentioned that I had signed up for half yearly goals on the HAED BB. I set myself small goals this time which were to complete 1 page of Treasures SK and 1 page of Believe QS and obviously with this post I have completed one of those goals.
I'm not sure what I am rotating onto now or whether I'll just concentrate on some knitting for a while. Once the blanket begins to take shape I'll take some photos.
