This year I'm trying not to work on too much at once. I find it helps my productivity if I'm more monogamous in my quilting and knitting. I have several projects waiting in the wings with some level of completion but I try to focus my time and energy on one at a time. Thus far in the year I've finished up four projects, one of which I'll show you today. I'm already marking things off my Q1 FAL list! I also have a few WiPs to show you and another finish to share later in the week.
Thanks for stopping by! That's it for me this week. I hope to make more progress on that cable hat and finish trimming those blocks soon. I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced.
|First, the finish. This is a Boo Boo Bunny, pattern by Blue Sky Alpacas. This is #14 on my Q1 FAL list. It's a small project but it took me out of my comfort zone with knitting. I haven't really ventured into shaping much and picking up stitches for the back flap was new. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Bonus, I have an extra ice pack so I can make another one!|
|I also started #15 on my list this week. Then picked it out and started it again. I'd made the pattern I was using before and it really didn't come out well - much too big. So, instead of trying to mess with gauge I just switched to this pattern that I have also make before which fits like a dream. This is the Traveling Cable Hat by Purl Soho. I'm around halfway through it and it is going so well!|
|I also made all the HST for my I Heart You quilt. Now I have to trim them. With good music on or a fun show in the background this is actually one of my favorite things. It's a good thing too because there are 232 of these to trim.|
|I also finished these blocks up this week. I'm doing a block exchange with 18 women from my church. There are my 18 blocks. This is a 12.5" Raspberry Kisses block. The math was done for me by the fabulous Vojen on IG.|
|I also made time to finish up my Thimble Blossoms Sampler with Cotton and Steel fabric. I'll show this one off later this week.|
