So would you like to see it? It's something very appropriate for the season... and I am hurrying to get this one in the mail today and crossing my fingers that the recipient gets it in time, I made this one for a swap, you see. All right, a little peek then. I bet you can guess what it is.
I can't tell you how excited I was to find that fabric for the bag and know that it would go just perfect with the yarn. Can you guess what it is? Do the numbers give it away? What if I show you a whole bunch of numbers?
Did you guess an advent calendar? I really would like to show it to you all strung up, but sadly I did not take the time to hang it. For one thing, I did not want to open the package of ornament hooks I bought to use for hanging it up, as it needs to go in the mail and I did not want all those hooks just loose in the envelope. Bad idea, I'm thinking. For another thing, I am not quite sure where to hang it here. I need to figure it out, though, because I am so in love with it, I want very much to make another one to keep for myself. I think that will be a much more gradual process, one or two pieces at a time in between other projects. But if I can manage to complete it, then perhaps later in December, I can show you a garlandy picture. :)
Oh, one last picture - I did something extra special for the ornament for Christmas Day. It photographed the worst of anything, unfortunately, but I think you will get the idea...
