Finished some more

I had some panda silk DK and wanted to see it in a shawl. Pardon the pictures as the wind picked up and it started pouring down rain. Thank You Laura for helping out with this one. Pattern is pimpelliese Easy to pattern to do once you chart it out yourself.

The start of the shawl along with the start of a baby blanket. Shawl won out.

Yes this is a long shawl.

Sometimes I do not say No loud enough or fast enough. I was asked to make this vest. I never did say I would but somehow went home with the thread for it. Pattern had to be redone as I did not have the correct cotton thread so the motifs were bigger. But here it is modeled on my neighbor.

no! NO!

yes, you never say "NO!" loud enough.
and ummm, i think you needed up with a shawl instead of a scarf...but it is very nice.

What a nice vest. You need to learn to say "NO, I won't be able to do that for you". No excuses why or guilt involved. Take it from one who didn't learn until age 62. The people who have taken advantage of your kindness will find someone else to do their bidding. Boundaries! xo
I know this is easier said than done, but practice and in between tell the person you will think about it. THEN say you can't do it. :)

Thanks for all the kind words.

I will start saying those words over and over. No I will not be able to do that for you.
