on the needles

I didn’t get to Rhinebeck this year, but I have more than enough yarn and fiber for another year’s worth of projects so I’ll be alright.  If I wasn’t festival-ing what was I doing?

– a hat in aubergine tweedUntitled

– the makings of a new pattern idea in the most wonderful olive color from Christine. I knit the entire front and blocked it, only to realize that it was a lot floppier en masse than the small blocked swatch. So I will start again with a smaller needle. blehh

– and a continuation of the quilt! There’s an art show going up on campus for students, faculty, and staff. I got asked to put something in the show and decided to submit this. The hand-quilting is going faster than I expected, but I need a name for the piece. I hate naming things….help!

    I love the hat and the quilt! It kind of reminds me of the candy wrapper jewelry art kit we picked up for a birthday gift for my son’s friend.

    oh my. it’s a toss up. I love love love that chevron quilt but that last kitty picture almost took the cake. i suppose that there is enough love in my heart for both!

    I’m no help with the name but love the quilt and the hat! I’m finding myself drawn to that color more and more these days, which is a departure from my all blue/green all the time norm. 🙂

    The design-in-progress looks like it will be interesting also.
