Sometimes we all need a little nudge from our friends to get through our projects. Between work, and spouses and children and friends and, well, you know... LIFE, it makes sense that the knitting and crocheting we have nestled in our baskets and bags fall to the wayside.

Well, Phyllis was in essence bribed by Tasha to finish the two gorgeous pieces that she had been working on. The deal went as follows: "You finish the two projects you're working on and I'll teach you how to make two socks at a time from the toe up....."

That's pretty much all it took! Here are the results!
Featuring Phyllis and her stunning interpretation of the Sunset Ruana which is found in the Winter 2009 issue of the Interweave Crochet magazine.
The smile says it all! And even in front of the rainbow wall behind her, the tunisian wonder still stands out!
And check this baby out! You might be familiar with the ripple afghan, but these colors are absolutely beautiful together!
She made this yummy afghan to present to her niece on her wedding day. It's perfect, Phyllis!

And as promised, the day Phyllis bought the completed items into the shop, Tasha dropped what she was doing and taught her how to knit the socks she was dying to do! It's a win-win situation, don't you think? We can't wait to see her completed socks!

Here's today's thought:

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.

-James Allen

Happy knitting and crocheting, my friends!
