Jabbering On

I had the worst time coming up for a title for today's post. I had to resort to pulling out the dictionary and reading through all the Js. And this is the best I could come up with. Sigh.

I didn't get a whole lot of anything really done done. I continued to play with the seven (and a half) years cardi. Border time...

It's hard to see in that image. I'm about halfway around adding a double crochet border. It'll make more sense on this image...

The right side has the border, the left side does not. I don't know if I like it. It needs something, but do I want to jazz it up a bit, or do I want the knit stitch (that I struggled with for years) to take center stage? I'm not sure.

And I also finished a couple more masks. First, I decided I wanted one in pink...

And then I just need a plain black one. (I have another black one, but I made a mistake on it, so I needed one made right.) 

So, progress of a sort. Perhaps next week I'll get a bit more done. (Don't count on it.)

  1. The cardigan is looking great! Nice to make masks, you can get them to fit your face and ears better than the ones off the shelf, as it were.

  6. Nice to see you make more progress on the cardigan. 11 years in the making; sounds like some of my projects. I like these latest masks, especially the black one.

    1. Seven years. Only seven years. Seven years is long enough...

  8. Putting the edging on the cardi certainly makes it look finished. Soooo close!

  9. Some progress! Masks look nice.
    Here now doctors are advising people to wear double-layer masks.

  12. You could have used 'Jazzing it Up' for the title. ~grin~ And I don't think your sweater needs further embellishment. But you know best. Be well!

    1. Perhaps. I don't know if it was really jazzed up, though.

    2. "Jazz it Up, or Not", then? lol

    1. If I can make it myself, I'd rather. I can't always do that.

  14. I see the difference and I think the border looks fine. The masks look great and basic black always goes.
