The Ice Queen is finished and we are getting a nice layer of ice on Scituate Pond. We'll be skating soon, hopefully. Our earliest skate date is December 8th. We might beat it this year. Here's hoping that the snow holds off for a long time. I did the garter stitch version with Kidsilk Spray. I have a set of interchangeable crochet hooks that I inherited from my mother, maybe grandmother. It was perfect for adding the beads as I knit. I don't think I would have used beads if I had to string 300 of them before casting on. Now I have to decide who to give it to!
I'm working on several projects, some for Christmas and some for my own pleasure. I finished the two secret projects I was working on, and will be able to add pictures in a couple of weeks. Will be starting a couple of string shopping bags for gifts. They should be quick to knit and something the recipients will use.
