Tick, tock

There's only one night left, and I'm way behind schedule. I didn't get a chance to work on this at all on Monday, and Tuesday night's knitting time was short. I finished up the last few rows this evening, took an hour or so to tidy the kerbillion ends, and I've only just started weaving.

The weaving isn't difficult, but it's not that fast, and it is a little hard on the hands.

Couple that with the fact that tomorrow is grocery night (and Mother Hubbard's cupboards are bare so I can't skip it!) and the outlook for having this done for Friday is bleak.

Thankfully, as I am going shopping tomorrow, I can stock up on jujubes and jellybeans.... gifts of candy will probably make him overlook the fact that his gift is a day or so late... right?

Brilliant strategy. With enough candy you might be able to get him to weave in the ends for you.

Buy me enough candy and I'LL weave in the ends for you. LOL

I'm sure a day or two won't be so bad. It's so handsome, he'll forget all about the date.

Such a great gift I don't think he'll mind!

I agree, that's a brilliant strategy!

I love that you shared a close-up photo of the weaving. I understand now how that's working, and it's really beautiful. The colors are a fantastic combination!

Dude, so much can be deflecting with candy. Personally I keep a stash of chocolate in my arsenal for this very reason. I am making a homemade card. I'm going old school this year. As far as his beautiful striped AND woven fancy accessory. I think without the chocolate and love he'd wait for it. It's beautiful.
