Then I got an email from ravelry. It was the first clue for the MKAL. It starts today and FINISHES on 31st October. I'd completely muddled up the dates in my head. I hadn't even wound the yarn or ordered the beads I was looking at. ARGH!
Well I had a little look in my bead stash, desperately hoping to find something that went and I think I might actually be ok! It's going to have more of a Christmassy feel than Halloween but should be ok
Dark green beads with a silver lining to go with the Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Cherry. I know the saying goes "red and green should never be seen" together but I rather like this combination actually.
I have NO IDEA how I'm going to get my other projects finished. Hopefully the recipients will be understanding :-)
I'd better stop waffling now and start knitting!
