I am really excited that I am again using Live Writer to compose my blog post. And I have my son #1 to thank as he told me where to look on the web to find it. It is really good to have this old friend back.
So, on my needles is my sweater, surprise, surprise. I am really impressed with how it is looking and anxious to see it done. I am trying to knit at least 4 rows a day which is almost 1”.
I have been looking at some other patterns but trying not to start another knitting project until this one is done.
I put in some time and finally got the cutting table cleared. It is funny how difficult it is to work when you can’t see the top of the table.
Once the table was cleared I was able to square this quilt and ready it for binding.
I even got the binding strips cut and sewn together: it is the black one. **DH got me this tie rack a couple of years ago but it took me a couple of months to figure out how to use it. Now I hang my 2 1/2” strips here when I am working with them: so much easier to keep them organized. Anyway, tomorrow I will be finishing the binding and then we just have to wait for me to make the label so I can sew them together onto the quilt.
And while I was on a roll I went back to a UFO project, placemats. 2 or 3 years ago I made placemats for my family for Christmas and some for DH and me. Well, I got kind of tired of placemats so our placemats have been done a little at a time. Above are the last two.
I am quilting them using some of the fancy stitches on my new machine.
It is so much fun to stitch fancy stitches. I still have a few more spaces to add stitches and then on to the binding which has been ready for that 2-3 years.
So that’s all I have been able to accomplish so far this week. Now on to the BOMs I seem to have forgotten to do last month.
