I got some feedback from some uber-helpful friends on my Sooper Secret Project last night, and I feel pretty good about where it's going. And it's going there quickly, which is always good. I just did a little surfing to get ideas for edging, though I may need to wait till I'm a little fresher to start playing with those. I just know I don't want shells. I love shells, but I put them on everything, and I want to mix it up! Of course if I change my mind and use shells after all you are all encouraged to laugh at me.
Of course, all this enthusiasm for my new project means nothing is getting done on the Christmas crocheting for my family. Right now I'm telling myself that's fine, crochet is after all a quick art. Check back in a week to see if I'm still feeling so confident.
