Today is the Last Day

Today is the last day to add a comment to be entered to win one of the two Craftsy class giveaways.  If you missed yesterday’s post, you can read it here.  Feel free to comment on this post or yesterday’s post, either will get you entered.

Yesterday I got a few things finished.  Do you remember the sweater that I showed you with the embroidered poinsettia?  That ensemble is all completed!  I crocheted a little Christmas stocking to go with it too, so fun.  I need to get photos taken… here’s the poinsettia embroidery on the sweater again.

We had a beautiful sunset yesterday evening.

Even if I don’t make what they are making, it is fun to watch the teachers share what they know and are so passionate about.  The classes are yours to view again and again, like a video class library.  Also, you can ask the teacher a question and she will get back to you with an answer.

I talked about my newest Craftsy class addition last week when I started knitting in the round.  You can read about my knitting in the round journey here and here.  I’ve made two Santa hats in the round so far!

Bye for now!
