For some reason, I haven’t been particularly motivated to finish this project. I’ve picked it up 3 or 4 times, but quickly found other things I’d rather do. It’s strange, because I love the colours and the finished project. It’s been cold and dreary here the past few days, and the kids and I have been sick. I put the finished legwarmer on for motivation today and and seem to have worked through my obstruction. I’m hoping to finish them soon, as the dandelions are currently in full bloom.
