It's getting so close to the end.
The book blanket and the book are almost finished. Almost.
All those long straggly bits are slowly being darned in, one by one, and then snipped off. What began as an idea is slowly becoming something you can hold in your hands. Something you can sit on the couch and enjoy.
Over the past few days I've seen the first pages (OMG!!), written my dedication, my acknowledgments, an extra para for the food section and a couple of tiny changes that have been rattling around in the back of my head for a while. I've sewn some little bits and pieces and I've taken a couple of last minute photos.
Tying up all the loose ends is hard for a disorganised person like me. Part of me wants to get on with next thing, to start something new. But for once I've worked to a list and I think I've remembered everything.
The book has gone now. One more look through from the editor, then to the type setter and then off to the printer. I wont see it again til August. August!! Oh my gosh.
And the book blanket still needs a few ends darned in and then it's done too. I still haven't decided whether or nor I'll crochet it a border. I think we'll live with it for a while and then decide.
And the next project? A cardigan made from one of the above. Miss Jazzy gets to decide which, although I'm pretty sure I know which one she'll choose already.
We're heading off on a 24 hour plane trip on Saturday, so I'm hoping to get a big chunk knitted up pretty soon. That is if the peeps at the airport let me take my needles on the plane. Fingers crossed.
So that's me. How about you?
Are you any good at tying up loose ends? At darning in the dangley bits?
At writing THE END before moving on to the next big thing?
Be good peeps.
Lotsa love xx
