Good Morning to all! Life is good here, still celebrating my birthday! I had dinner out on Tuesday night with family, a treat (shake) on Wednesday, and dinner in with friends and Greek take out last night. And tomorrow I head back to the hometown to my fav restaurant there for dinner. But before that, Diva and I are wedding dress shopping!!!
This week has been good for the knitting and sewing! I finished my cowl over the weekend, got all the body and most of the collar knit on the toddler sweater, and finished 1 table topper-top only. So some crafting has been happening here! Since I will be back out of town over the weekend, knitting will be my companion. Which means I need to find another project to work on since that sweater should be done by tomorrow!
The pattern has you knit it flat and then seam it, but I just knit until the top edge was about 22″ and then joined in the round. The color is more true in the mirror shot on right. I love it, but have yet to wear it!!! I just haven’t had the perfect venue, maybe Saturday will be the day?
I am knitting up this bulky as a Gramps by altering the stitch count. Right now I am on the button band, shawl collar. It’s a long slog, but I am close to the end. Then two small sleeves and it will be done! Hopefully I can drop this off with the birthday boy before I head back to Indy.
Here is the first table topper, top only, no quilting yet. This is Cabin Skein, sort of, I pointed the geese in instead of out. Oh well, no one else will know. LOL. The difference in the look is due to my EQMini, which does not allow for precise blocks on some of the designs. But no matter, the gist is the same. Now, on to the next one, a Pineapple block! But first, I need to print out the paper foundation.
