Another finished item to add to the list. Seems that this year is full of small projects for me.
Project Details: This was the April Mystery 220 project. Turns out to be Bronte's Mitts (not a unicorn horn cover - which I was hoping for). I used Liberty's Yarn Bluetopia (holding two strands together). I used size 4 and size 5 dpn. I started on April 4th and finished on April 23. My dear hubby is calling them my Madonna gloves and I have to say I feel a little 1980's with them on. Now to see what we will be making for May's Mystery.
A co-worker of Mike's just had a baby and I decided to whip up a raggy quilt for the little guy. The fabric just showed up and it is now in the washer ragging. I love fast projects!
Project Details: Use fleece, cotton or flannel fabric. I cut out 8x8 squares. Sew them together right side out with at least a 1/4" seam. There is no batting - just the back. Sew the back to the front with at least a 1/4" seam. Using scissors cut the fabric ever 1/12" just down near the seam (but not right up against it). Wash. Let the raggy quilt be alive!
This is a secret design project. Still on the needles and still super hush hush!
I finished up these socks on Monday morning as we drove home (there was too much wind to travel on Sunday).
Project Details: The pattern is called Nutkin and is really easy to memorize and work while watching tv. I did two pairs of socks at the same time (which made it seem like they went faster). These are a gift for the Sole Sisters group that I'm in. I used Liberty's Bluetopia yarn called Ketchikan (had to buy it being an Alaskan girl). Started on March 12 and finished on April 11. I couldn't understand the patterns heel or toe (so I used my standard one). Other than that I followed the pattern. I sure hope by buddy enjoys these.
During our weekend track/RV trip I finished clues 1 & 2 for Aprils Mystery 220 KAL. I know that for people who did these with a solid color you could make out more - but I love the bright colors and the pop of each of them. Waiting for clue 3.
On Purl SoHo they have been doing a mini quilt each month. I just love them all and decided to follow along. This is my first one. The pieces are cut and I've decided to machine quilt the circles. I figure I'll do one circle a day (which shouldn't take up too much time).
I picked out fabric that I love and wouldn't mind seeing hanging on my wall.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
