3 Ties Down .... 6 to Go

I finished my 3rd tie to the Christmas Tree Skirt last night.

I have one more tie to make out of this hand spun yarn and then 5 more white ties. The goal is to finish it by August - well in advance of Christmas. In order to make sure I don't fall off the wagon, I have made myself a strict schedule. One tie must be completed each month; no excuses.

This schedule thing is working well right now. The best laid plans always do start out with a fine flourish. I just hope I can keep this going in the middle of summer when it's hot and the last thing I want to work with is wool.

Well, I'm going to try not to think about that now. It's still winter and hopes are high.

That is really pretty yarn you are using. With a big project like this I think it is best to set goals - good luck with sticking to them - it will be worth it!
