A New Project: The Guardian

Yes, I'm aware I need a new project like I need a hole in my head.

But as you might imagine from all the travel in December that I have briefly mentioned but probably didn't really tell you about, by the time Christmas rolled around I really needed something I could sink my fingers into without thinking, that would keep me busy, and allow me to ignore anyone without seeming like an anti-social jerk. So I did this on Christmas-
This kit (Dimensions Gold Collection DIM35153 "The Guardian") got purchased at a Knitting & Stitching Show a couple of years ago, but it was just what the doctor ordered.

And its full of half stitches! Glory be and hallelujah!! This is like candy to me- fast progress, easy pattern. Oh beautiful, beautiful easy mode. Which is why I managed to get this done in the last two weeks-
I can't quite explain just how wonderful it is to have something where you can instantly see progress. Sorely tempted to do all cross stitches in half stitches in future too.
