I was hoping to get this post up somewhat in time, but of course Christmas happened, travels and whatnot and I am almost two weeks late again, but at least it's still the right month - and I do have a few things to show although a few are still under wraps - another time!
Just in time before I left for Australia, I finished this crochet shawl as a Christmas present for my best friend in her favourite colours. The pattern is called 'Virus' because once you start making those, you can't stop, it's that addictive. It really was a lot of fun, my friend loved it, and I'll certainly make one for myself eventually.
While I was in Australia, I had two projects with me to work on. The first was 99, on which I finally finished the first page (page 3 in my case). If I want this done by the end of August (and I do!), I will have to pick it up a lot more frequently from now on! 18 bottles done, 81 left to go.
The other travel project I brought with my was my Saffron shawl, and I've been working on it since my return back home as well. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out quite big enough, but by now I have a nice size, and about three more rows to go, so hopefully I will finish by the end of the year.
Finally, I've had a new start over the last few days; a headband I promised a coworker over a year ago so it was high time I finally got to work on it! It's my first braid knitting pattern, and it turns out this is way more easy (and fun!) than I thought! I still have a bit to go, but it's knitting up quickly and should be done soon.
So that's it for the very last GG check in of the year! It was another fun year of gift and gifted projects, and I do hope to continue into 2018, if Jo is up for it - I can't remember if she already posted whether GG will continue or not. As last year, it was a lot of fun, ans not too stressfull since most of my projects fit into this SAL by default :) So thanks everyone for following along, and thanks to Jo for hosting another year of this fun!
