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...................

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

Yarn Along 2/20/13 Spoon Pin Doily

It's snowing here and I know some of you are tired of snow but here we will take the moisture any way we can get it. Plus it just gives me a reason to stay in and work on some of my projects. In this picture I'm not sure if you can make it out but in the background there are some wild turkeys that hang around the house sometime, just  chilling This project I'm working on is Spool Pin Doilies.   I had never heard of them before until Bonnie Hunter had mentioned it on her blog . She a had a viewer send her one for her sewing machine along with a pattern. I did not like the pattern but loved the idea so I decided to make up my own version. I wanted a more simple, smaller and fuller doily. So I tried different thread sizes to get one that I like. (From left to right) I tried sock yarn, which I'll redo because I think I like that look. Heavy weight crochet thread, nope too big Bamboo yarn, I like it. Looks good on my Kenmore. Pearl cott

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.
