It's finished!!!

The middle section is wrong. I found out at the end sections that because I was left-handed I had to undo it and do them differently than the pattern said………. the same was true for the middle but I didn’t realize that until I knew that I messed up at the end. I just wasn’t looking closely enough at it.

I love it and no one but another girasol knitter will know that I messed up.

I measured it and it’s just over 6.5 feet in diameter…………. it’s sooooooo perfect!!!!

Girasol Update

I couldn't get the border right on the girasol and so after searching other borders I opted for the Hemlock Ring border. I'm hoping to finish it today and block it this week.


Three more aliens have come for a visit on their way to their new homes. They'll be leaving tomorrow but they had a nice visit with their cousins.

Aliens and Hats

Justin already had the green alien. Kevin asked for a yellow one for a friend so I made her one. Then I decided I wanted a bigger one and used the thickest yarn I had. Here's the family before the yellow one went to his new home.

A friend needs chemo caps. :-(
