As planned I finished up my "Tons of Black" Challenge piece yesterday afternoon. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Good size. May work for a guy as I don't think the grayish green looks girl-y though it is a vine print.
I spent part of last evening knitting---making some progress on this latest hat, playing with the double point needles. Ordinarily I would not worry so much about capping the tips but I am still afraid the stitches might slip off the back end of the needle. I just move them as I knit around and around. I've got an inch or so to go before I begin the decrease. I'm doing to try it on the circulars next, practicing what I picked up on the video links I posted recently. Like the blue color?? Uh, make that "shaded dusk"
Today was Bama Belles day---the weather was kind of miserable--cold and wet but thankfully the rain seemed to slow down to that misty stuff when we had to haul things in from the car. I'll report on that later as we had a bunch of quilts turned in at the meeting. I did a little bit of sewing on the Criss Cross pro bono top I had been working on at the Friendship Quilters sew-in. Initially I had planned on putting the binding on my Christmas Patience Corner but I didn't want to be hauling that around in the rain. It was already in the car, the car is NOT the pampered princess that gets to sit in the covered car port, not worth getting it wet when I can do it here at home.
Aline will have one for me to quilt but it was short backing fabric when the girls pinned it today. Once that is straightened out, she'll bring it by.
So stay tuned---pics in a day or two! You know where to find me----------
