New Years Eve - posted by Melissa

“The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.” 
― Ezra Pound

Spent part of the day with our knit group & was finally able to give this lovely person her 50th birthday gift.  Recognize???  It's SPIRE!!  My 2014 New Years project is finally done 2 years later and doesn't it look fantastic on Kelli?!

Looking forward to casting on Stonecrop with you all tomorrow!  Have a wonderful evening...the fun begins tomorrow!

Happy New Year!  Melissa


  1. I can't believe you've gifted this to me! I don't think I've ever been given such a piece of art!
    I don't think you'll ever know what this means to me ~ thank you just doesn't seem to cut it...
    Like your friendship it's priceless to me.

    1. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this look of sheer glee on your face. I'm so glad to gift it to you, sister....worth every dropped stitch I had to fix ;)

  2. It is stunning! Happy Birthday Kelli and Happy New Year to all!

  3. Stunning! Both the Spire and the model!! Happy Birthday and happy, healthy 2016!

  4. what a beautiful gift and what a beautiful model! Happy birthday!!!

  5. So pretty. What a thoughtful gift; you wear it well, Kelli. Happy belated and enjoy the Stonecrop you guys. Wish I was joining you, and I even have the yarn. I'm still slogging through the Girasole and it would eat at me if I stared another big project. I'm soooo slow. Wish I was an accomplished knitter like you. Happy New Year, all.
