This week I've been continuing on with the same WIP's from last week, with a new addition!
I've made more progress on Isla's Tanvi cardigan. I've just done the bind off for the sleeves, and started the first of the diamonds. I know it is hard to see in the picture, but trust me, there are little sleeves there!
I've also made more progress on my fan and feather blanket. I'm just finishing up a cream coloured repeat, and then two more repeats until the end. It might even make a FO Friday soon, just not this week. I'm only doing two more repeats because then I'll be out of the blue and green (mostly), so here's hoping it is long enough. It has been fun, but seeing as how I've been relatively monogamous between this and the girls cardigans, I'm ready for a new project. Hopefully another stash busting one!
In other fabric, non-knitting news, I've started the first quilt for each of my daughters. Last week I asked for some easy quilt ideas and I want to say a huge thank you for all the ideas. I got really rather excited by a lot of the ideas, and if I have any steam left after I finish these two quilts, I would love to make one for myself with fabric from my stash. Actually, I'm thinking of making a patchwork duvet cover, but we'll see how it goes.
|I know the bottom one is hard to see, I tried to darken the picture but it is just too light!|
For the first quilt I am doing a zig zag pattern, and the second will be a strip quilt. I let the girls pick out what they wanted me to make. I think I'll have to go ahead and order a bit more flannel fabric, as the baby blankets will only get me so far. I've got little squares left over from the cutting, which I think I'll try to use somehow, if I can do it without it looking silly. It has been fun so far!
That's it for me this week, happy crafting!
