- Picnic blocks
- My UFO for the week is Scrappy HSTs
- Knitting UFOs!
- Strip Stacks blocks
I'm getting underway piecing the blocks for Picnic (cover quilt from the book Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Bracket) using a jelly roll of Serenade by Kate Spain. I think these will go together quickly and I so love this fabric line!
Over the weekend when our daughter was home her boyfriend and I decided it was time to get her hooked on Mad Men so we had a marathon while snowed in and made it through all of Season 1. Such a great show! I pulled out my knitting bag and finished off 3 UFOs while watching.
I love wearing scarves, both knitted & woven for a quick splash of color. The pink/lavender is a mohair type mixed with the modified ladder yarn you can see, next is a ladder yarn in blues/purples and the pastel scarf is a ladder yarn combined with a nubby cotton.
I didn't follow a pattern for these, just cast on to a width I liked (whenever that was!) and on Sunday I knit until the yarn was gone. The mohair mix scarf is seed stitch (alternate 1 knit, 1 purl) and the other two are straight knitting on large needles.
