A bit of knitting progress

Yesterday I finally got to back to working on my sister’s summer top.

20140330_3 Neck edge and armhole trim added so now I just need to seam the side seams and do the usual finish work (block then bury ends).

Also worked a bit on my Cardipalooza and  I’m on the final bit of one front – working my way up along the neckline decreases.

Today I may finish cleaning up a bit of the bits and bob in the sewing room (most of it is yarny stuff that got moved out of the living room).  Now that there’s more room for under bed storage – I can move some of the yarn storage out of the sewing room closet and under the bed.   And I’m on the hunt for a specific hank of yarn I bought that’s someone where in one of those yarn containers so I need to go through them anyway to find it.

I’ve also got a couple quilt tops set aside, backing fabric washed for one yesterday and backing in the washer now for another, that I’d like to get layered soon. And there’s a quilt binding to sew down.  All kinds of fun stuff to work on.

  1. Beautiful top. I’ve not tried knitting a top. I stick with scarves and blankets. Maybe I should try one.

  2. This is so pretty, I love the design. I don’t knit however, I can crochet. Mostly I semi quilt, meaning sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. Your energy in all you do and show us is amazing.

  3. I think that pattern is so pretty and your sister will love it I’m sure. What a good sis you are to make something so useful and beautiful at the same time.

  4. I love everything about your sister’s top! The pattern is beautiful and the color is one of my favorites. I would have trouble parting with this one.
