Finish It Friday

It's always more fun to start a new project than to finish one - at least for me.  Running a business out of my home requires discipline - something I'm not always very good at.  I try to make Fridays a day for finishing projects, thus I think of Friday as Finish It Friday.  IF I can pull this off, I do feel better, and it gets me semi-organized at least one day a week!

It seems like I pick up a crochet hook much more than I do knitting needles.  I heard somewhere crocheting is faster than knitting and I know that appealed to me.  Not that I don't enjoy the process, but I like to finish too.  Maybe crocheting gives me a sense of satisfaction more often!

Did I mention the photos are of projects I made using alpaca yarn?  Click The Fiber to read more about this luxurious fiber.  Alpaca is WARMER than wool, softer than cashmere - be sure to visit The Farm Store for beautiful items made from alpaca - stay warm this winter!

 More on the art of crocheting coming soon! 

I just found a great tutorial on Adding A Header To Your Blog, thought I'd pass it along for you bloggers out there, especially newbies like me!

Finished and posted on website - yes!

Though sometimes difficult, I like to name my yarns.  This one is a very textured handspun yarn, a blend of suri and huacaya, and I'm calling it Buttercup.

These alpaca hats are crocheted with rovings and a big hook!  I call them Cobblestone Hats.  They also could be knitted with large needles - very easy.
