Some finishes

Feeling in the christmassy mood, I finished this mantle swag today, a pattern from Wee folk Art, a little more for christmas. It looked good on the mantle but it was too dark inside for the photo

It was such a lovely day, warm and bright, it was a shame to miss it, so headed outside where I finished off this little cross stitch project.

Then tackled the cable border of a waistcoat I have been knitting, I hadn't been looking forward to this part of the pattern, but with a little concentration it wasn't as hard as I thought. Certainly a little more challenging than k1 p1 beanies.


  1. The mantle swag is lovely.... and I admire cross stitch cos I struggle with it! As for cables... not for the fainthearted.... love the colours in the waistcoat...

  2. Just love the swag... I haven't seen anything like that before and it's gorgeous. I too admire cross stitching.. I've done it in the past, but not so much these days. Your cable knitting is fabulous... I think you are very clever xx
