I love knitting with this yarn and it’s reasonably priced too – Berocco Vintage. I’m making good progress on this UFO – a Herringbone Shawl.
One of my groups on Ravelry is doing a knit along using Wolle’s yarn. I bought two skeins and beads but today I had to buy some more. Reading about everyone’s projects made me want some more of this yarn for future projects.
I’ve pretty much decided I’ll use this purple/blue yarn for my knit along project.
I’m in Georgia — the condo is a mess and I don’t even want to talk about it but I’ve had two evenings with Rae…she is constant motion and every photo I’ve tried to snap has been blurred. Such a sweetie! I’ll see her again on Saturday and I can’t wait.
This HeartStrings quilt of mine is finished … Early even since it counts as February’s UFO.
I’m getting ready to head out of town and I need some simple knitting. I wanted to start a new project but I have one I’m going to start when I get home and I still have to finish the beaded red scarf so I pulled out the herringbone shawl UFO. I love knitting this so I’m not sure why I set it aside but it’s the project I’ll work on until I leave and while I’m gone. This one is eventually destined for donation.
And yes, I finished my binding first!
One of the main reasons I cruise blogs is for inspiration. I’m terrible about commenting and while it’s tempting to blame it entirely on the switch to using Feedly on the iPad, the truth is I could comment more but it would take more time that I usually commit to blog reading.
Tonight I saw two examples of quilting that inspire me. Terri is just an amazing long arm quilter and I’m constantly saving screenshots of her beautiful work. I just love this small border quilting.
Helen quilts on her domestic machine and I have watched her challenge and stretch herself over the last several years and I love seeing her results.
Dealing with the insurance issues and waiting on an update about the drying/ripping out process at the condo.
Finishing the quilting and shipping my Aunt’s quilt back to her.
Knitting some on my beaded scarf.
Taking care of a dog with diarrhea and vomiting (he’s better now).
Looking forward to seeing Rae in 3 days.
Planning the next knitting project.
Well I love both these kids. Chris knows me well and figured I would be stressing about the condo so he sent me several texts this morning … a scripture reference I had to look up and a photo of my sweet Rae.
Such a good son.
Do you have a design wall? Mine is outside my sewing room at the top of the landing because I don’t have room for it IN the sewing room ….and that’s a good thing.
I see my current project every time I go up and down the stairs. I move a block here, move a block there almost without thinking about it each time I go up and down until it seems just right. I still have a ways to go on this little one.
I don’t usually receive so many comments and emails that I can’t acknowledge them all if only with brief thanks but I’m pretty far behind right now. I hope to be caught up soon.
In the meantime, I was trying to catch up with some blogs … And this post caught my eye. In my knitting and quilting somehow it’s always the next project that is the one that fires my imagination.
