WOW! I can’t believe I haven’t posted to the ole blog for over a year! I have been a knitting MACHINE and done very little quilting. Yarn is overtaking the fabric in my studio LOL. I know I will return to quilting one day, but for now I’m enjoying a hobby that doesn’t sequester me from other people in a room of my own. In fact the only time I go into the studio is to put yarn away, wind yarn for a project or blocking a project. The last quilt I finished was a Tshirt quilt in November for a friend using her late Father in law’s Tshirts. It turned out lovely and the family was very happy with the result.
Here’s a picture of it:
On the knitting front I’ve finished lots of socks and several scarves and shawls. At the moment I’m working on a pair of socks using a fun self striping yarn in my favorite colors (pink, green and yellow). I knit all of my sock using a 2 at a Time Toe Up Magic Loop method. Here’s the socks in progress:
I’m also working on my first Entrelac piece. It’s a lovely shawl and the pattern is called “Autumn”. I’m using Jojoland Rhythm yarn which is a self striping yarn and alot of fun! I think this shawl will look great with jeans this winter! Here’s what the finished shawl will look like:
And here’s mine in progress:
I also participated in a Summer Mystery Knit Along host by my favorite sock pattern designer, Wendy Johnson. The shawl pattern was alot of fun and I used Dream In Color Smooshy yarn in the Into the Mystic colorway. Here’s a picture of the finished shawl:
I’m happy to be back to blogging and I’ll do my best to keep blogging away!
Happy Knitting and Quilting!
