Knitting projects wip’s

 The last post I wrote, had on the “things to do” for this week. I had down to work on a batch of wip’s that are stored right next to my chair at sit at while in the living room.  I’m feeling like I’m being taken over by projects bags.

Had 6 bags of started projects, most of them are very close to being completed.


Laying these out you can see just much I’ve done already. 

Out of the 6 items I’ve decided I’m not wanting to finish #6.  I’m just not feeling it for this shawl and I could use the yarn for another pattern  


        So Monday night I went ahead and frogged it.

Then the Mitts #4 they were done and need to have the thread tails woven in  ✅

        The weather has turned bitter cold and these will be used often in                      the near future.
                             The pattern is a free one by Purl SoHo

Then yesterday I was able to finish #2 

Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure.


The yarn is finger weight merino that I dyed in 2020. I used the skins of yellow onions. Just love the color it made and hope to duplicate that on a few skeins so I can knit them up on a new Cardigan. I’ll share my experiences when I get to that, hopefully soon.




Haven’t decided which sock I’ll finish, #3 or #5.  

Both sets need a sock to complete and they are both stopped at the heel.

 

Feeling  better,  I’m halfway done with the batch but already have a ✅ for my list.


Till later B Happy

  1. goodluck on getting those projects finished.......I guess if you don't like the shawl wool is easy to just pull undone and turn into another project...................

  2. You made excellent progress finishing up previous projects. I'm always amazed by the things that you knitters can do. I've tried knitting, I've even made a couple of sweaters but, I'm really not any good at it. With only two socks to finish, you'll be done in no time.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

My Sunflower Quilt

  Yea it's done. It has been a few years since I started this quilt. It was a BOM at Sager Creek Quilt Shop . Pam's (the owner) friend Marilyn McSpadden designed this quilt and Pam quilted it. Marilyn  used a lot of different techniques in appliqued designs.I just loved the weaving of fabric in the center of this blocks.   What beautiful quilting she did. I favor hand quilting but for machine quilting this is top notch.  As you can see Marilyn had design some of the blocks in 3 dimensional    And the rouging in the center of this sunflower was fun. Love the details in the quilting. This quilt measures 64 x 82 and was a fun challenge. This quilt will go in my dining room. 

What's Up

Well that is a big question, what's up Seeing how I haven't posted since before the retreat I went to. So I will show what I did at the retreat and what I have been doing these past few days, which is this Log Cabin Christmas Tree  wall hanging I have the blocks completed and now it just a matter of getting them sewn together. I'll get to that tomorrow. While at the retreat I made this baby quilt top with the disappearing 4-patch block. I had a charm pack and used some "snow" fabric Kaufman snow is one of my favorite whites to use. It's white but not a stark, bright white, goes well with a majority of the fabric I've collected. I started late making my blocks for RCS14 First I wasn't sure what pattern I wanted to make and then with all that was going on the first part of the year, I didn't start until July. One quilt is using a quarter log cabin in solid colors. I made these at the retreat, have the other half t
