If you send a quilter/knitter to Grandma’s. . .


she’ll have to take a sewing machine, (she has done this before)


an iron, pressing mat, rotary cutter, scissors a cutting mat
and a project over due that needs to be finished now.

She’ll also take 6 shawls in various stages of completion:
from almost there, finish ripping out the cast off and re-do with enough beads for finishing.

to just one more clue

to just two more clues

to where did I leave off on this one

to so I took this one off the needles to use for another project–now it’s on a lifeline, how do I rescue it.

to I think I’ll start this over
or not maybe just rip it out and use the yarn for ……..

this goes with me, ‘coz I can knit and I don’t have to think much,

(yep, it’s a Longerberger basket)

and a sweater to try to learn how to knit the both sleeves at one time on one long circular needle,


thinking she will get at least 3 shawls finished.

WAIT!! the quilter/knitter will only be at Grandma’s for 5 days, and there are meals to cook and the flower garden to water, and naps to take. . . . . . . . .

I Like Finishing Projects

TA-TA!

‘Anjou’ has been furnished for a while. My daughter, Mary, blocked it for me for Mother’s day. I love the way it turned out. At first, it was a little daunting having 5 charts to work from; okay I’ll do it:(reach back and pat, pat, pat).

Mr. Wallaby sweater is done – just need to neaten strings and block.Yardage was my challenge in this one. I used sock yarn and instead of making a gauge and doing the math; I guessed. All in all it turned out fine.

Main projects now, another wallaby, Holden shawl, and KAL, Slice of Pi,

Yarn Along – May 30, 2012

“~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well.” Join others here.

I put ‘Soft Twist Slice of Pi’ on a life-line to see what it was looking like:

I have another last section repeat and the a ruffle border. I’m finally learning what to look for to keep my stitch count accurate.

The Holden shawlette is coming along. I’m ready to start the feather and fan border. I made the body larger; now¬† I have to work out the math.

Tonight I’m listening to Cloud Nine by Luanne Rice.
