Have you been Nana-er-ing too

I know that Kabeltrui has...

cushion cover in progress

I loved how her "Elmer" cushion turned out...

cushion cover side a ('elmer')


Fabulous colours!!!
and the back of the cushion is just as pretty...

Thank you so much Trui
for adding these to the Grandma Tutorial flickr group...

If you haven't joined the flickr group yet please pop over and join in...
I love seeing everyone's gorgeous creations and pictures...

I will be hopefully posting my finished socks...soon...
(I am saving that now so it makes me do the second one)...
I can see why there is a term called "second sock syndrome"...
How true...
I was sure that I would be so amazed to finish the first that I would just whip out the hook again
and start straight away...
But no...
I pondered...
I got sidetracked...
I said to myself that I had more urgent commitments...
Like classes starting back this week...
When really I was just plain stuffed...
It drained me...
Do you get that too?
The pattern was major I will say
so I think that didn't help...
But having said that
I do really want to see a matching pair...
So... head down... yarn at the ready...
Second sock here I come...

I know that feeling. You must force yourself to get started. But then it´s fun again when you have two socks instead of one. Greetings from Sweden.

Now I need to try the nana pattern. Just saw your pattern for the granny slippers - another one to add to my to do list. Haven't joined your flickr group but will straight away.

Allyson said...

Oh yes, I get that!I like variety, so I just don't have the motivation to do the second one. I have the same issues with sleeves! I also find that the second sock just doesn't WANT to be knitted.

Talking of nana-ering...the squares remind me of a blanket I made based on an Attic24 one http://www.flickr.com/photos/hooked_on_yarn/4502331936/in/photostream

Such fiddly little squares!

I have second glove syndrome. :-P

I've experienced second fingerless syndrome too. I think next time I'll work on both at the same time.

I loved reading about you in Mollie Makes magazine. It was such a wonderful surprise turning the page and finding you there!

So sorry for the mix up Michelle. I had been going back and forth between reading blogs and reading the magazine that I jumbled everything together. I think it was a bit of wishful thinking on my part.
