Bettna DONE
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I started this last summer, thinking it would be a quick knit because it was so easy. But that was the problem it was miles and miles of knitting and purling and I got totally BORED. Then when it was finally done it was seaming seaming and more seaming.

I'm trying to finish up a bunch of stuff before I start Sylvi so this weeks challenge was to finish BETTNA and except for one last blocking it is DONE DONE DONE!!

Bettna made with Noro Big Kureyon color #1, I think I ended up using 13 skeins.

Yes indeed!!! The next challenge is to finish the February Ladys Sweater, which is done except for the last sleeve. I have no idea why I put that down, except that the lace pattern got tedious after awhile.

I have along weekend at the firehouse this weekend so hope to have enough "downtime" to finish it.

THEN, it's on to Sylvi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks fantastic! Love the colors I have the habit of putting things down when they get tedious too....which is probably why I tend to stick to "smallish" projects!
