Knitting Progress

Here's how far I've gotten on my scarf. I have enough of this yarn to make a cap and mittens. I'm so glad I started knitting again.


Yesterday while at Hobby Lobby, I was talking with another knitter and she reminded me about a knitting shop about 10 miles south of here so I rode out there yesterday and got some more yarn.


Actually, the two balls in the bototm right corner were purchased over the weekend at a shop in Newburgh, IN and I'll use those for a hat. The two skeins in the upper right are for more socks. That's the same yarn Susan sent me and I love working with it. The lime green and eyelash are for making a felted wool purse!! And, the dishrag is what I finished that I'll give to the lady who helped me with my socks last Thursday.

So you don't think I'm not quilting, here's the backing of the November Quilt for an Hour project. This is the fabric I found for my friend who is the beautician in Lake Charles. I collaborated with a fellow Stash Quilter (I'll tell you more about that later) for the design for next month and made mine to match this backing. You have to wait to see the front! :)

I like the November project a whole lot and I think you will too. The front of this quilt is pink and purple but I'm making another one that is yellows/tans/greens.

But for now . . I've played around all morning on my own stuff and now it's time to get some customer quilting done. I have a really big quilt next that gets Angel Wings panto. I love doing that one!

How fun that you are knitting! I'd love to but my mom would flip. She tried so hard to teach me to knit and I just couldn't figure it out...I'd drop stitches on one row and add on another and end up with holes. I was just pitiful...so I'll just have to enjoy yours. Thanks for sharing!

Watch out - I just donated 2 boxes of leftover yarn from afghan projects over the last 3 years and now I'm in a hat, scarf, and doggie sweater mode and I'm buying yarn faster than I can knit!

I'm trying NOT to end up with a over-sized yarn stash in addition to my oversize fabric stash.

I shipped off 2 boxes of stash fabric that I no longer wanted to 2 different charities today so I'm taming the stash some before having to have it boxed up and moved.

I love the yarn colors.

Hmm. I think I'm falling behind! =) I look forward to seeing what the November project is, now that I've seen the purple backing.

Your yarns look like such fun.

i'm tempted already to do the November challenge quilt and i haven't seen the front of the quilt yet! I like the backing fabric you've used so i am real curious to know what the front looks like. For some reason i thought it might have been a Christmas one.

Darcie said...
