But, the good news is, hubby bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas! Also, most of the knitting is done too - so hopefully, there will be more blog posts in the new year.
So, what have I been knitting? Prayer shawls, baby sweaters, and a few toys for my grandsons... (they aren't finished, so I can't share them yet). The prayer shawls though - have a look:
This shawl is made with a blue / green / beige variegated worsted weight yarn combined with a Bernat Pop! ball that had several shades of green / aqua. It's done with a simple k2, p1 stitch across the row - EVERY row. Both were done on 8 mm needles.
I've also knit a few Tenderheart sweaters from Tincanknits for baby gifts - and I've already shared those finishes - but they released a new pattern (Dogstar) this past fall, and I had to try one of them! I've shared a few "in progress" pictures of that sweater, and finally can share the completed photo:
It's been gifted to my daughter's friend's little girl.
And now, the really exciting news - I've signed up to do a mystery quilt on New Year's day! It's through Merry Mayhem - it sounds really fun. These are my fabrics - and the fun starts Monday morning at 11. You'll have to check back in a few days to see what I've done with them!
I appreciate your patience as I got my "stuff" sorted out! I'm hoping to find a better balance of projects (and commitments!) in the new year.
Psst! Did I tell you that 2 of our neighbours are expecting babies?.... Here we go again!
