Using about 900 yards of fingering weight yarn, held double I knit this lovely marled scarf for a friend.
It is made from leftovers and mini skeins on US 5 needles, and I just love how it turned out. I may make another in different colors someday.
Also, in Portland this weekend, I scored a few new fabrics, including this sweatshirt knit (so soft and squishy!).
It is always hard to show restraint on vacation, but I don't feel too bad about my new stash.
I have been working on my string diamond hand quilting, but it is slow. I am enjoying the process, and I am going to try to work on it a few times a week for the rest of the month.
Additionally, I've started a new project, working strictly from scraps (with the exception of the neutral squares).
They are cog blocks, and I am choosing fabrics for each one individually. This is a traditional block, and I am using the instructions in Make Your Own Medallion.
I'll be back later in the week!
