Last summer, when we were up on Bailey Island, we went to a fabulous town-wide garage sale that Bailey and Orr put on every year. One of the deals was that you could pay $5 and get a box, and put everything that would fit inside the box.
I didn't need too much stuff, but one of the things I found was a bag full of yarn--mostly cones of cotton, plus one really nice spool of pretty red crochet thread, either Aunt Lydia's or maybe DNC. And then a little bit later, I found an old wind-up Timex watch without a band, and with a big scratch on the face. I wound it up and darned if the thing doesn't work perfectly. So I thought, I could crochet a watch band! At the craft store I got some plastic rings, and began crocheting around them, crocheting them together... adding on a clasp.
I started it in August but then the new Term started so I put it aside. I took it out once somewhere in the middle and crocheted a few more rings, but then the Gotta Do knitting took over.
I still have Gotta Do knitting: my OWL and my Phoenix are not where I want them. But I had 8 WIPs yesterday. Today I have only 6, because I finished the Barbie dress, which I shall show off momentarily. So I've now finished two projects in two days. Next Wednesday I'm going after the Galaxy socks, because I would really like one more pair of hand-knit socks for my wardrobe. Meanwhile, I have a watch to wear. Hooray!
And Barbie, of whom I'm insanely proud at the moment:
