On the home front

I’ve been home a few days to visit. Soon I’ll be off again to see my dear son and daughter-in-law to be. In the meantime I’ve made progress on several unfinished projects.

I made several attempts on a “playful” panda hat pattern and think I have it now. This one is in fingering weight I’m gonna try the next in heavier yarn, DK.

I only made one hat but I took one picture in the mirror so they look like they’re facing different directions.

I finished and blocked my lace mohair cropped cardigan that I started sometime in the summer, when we were sailing. I remember how it blew in the wind while I was trying to work on it. I wanted it to be snug and there’s negative ease alright, I can’t eat too much until I wear it.

The wool braided rug is taking forever! I’ve become much less compulsive about how the strips fold and may finally finish it – or just declare it done.

And I’m quilting this darling bargello baby quilt. Speedy project I found online and a great way to use up odd bits of fabric.

I’m glad I had a chance to visit home. The scenery has been amazing, leaves in full color, milkweed shedding seeds.

  1. Beautiful projects as usual and I admire your great job at color work. I have a hard time with my tension when doing it. I either get the floats to loose or too tight.

    Also admire the fact you can do so many great things! Have safe travels and happy creating.

    • Thanks Sharon,
      I really enjoy stranded and twined knitting. This hat was actually a little tight and I’m planning a little backwards knitting on my motifs. We’ll see.
