Knitting finish

I finished my second red project for the All About the Red KAL in the Stitchnerd’s group on ravelry..

This is TVG – super simple knit and great for long striping yarns but I also like the first one I made in solids.

It’s a fun little crescent shaped scarf made in Zauberball in shades of red.   I like the great colors in Zauberball and the long color changes which work so great in scarfs/shawls.  The only thing I’m not crazy about is it’s thick and thin quality.  While for the most part it is consistent there are areas of far too thin and far too thick for my tastes within it.  It’s just the type of yarn it is and it works fine in this project but I originally bought it for socks and decided I couldn’t use it for them.

I also made a bit of progress on my Cracpaca Cowl.

As I was looking at this photo I just realized that the new fleece jacket I ordered is a dark gray so maybe I have to keep this one for myself.

Points of View – A bit of cutting

 

After this project getting pushed back several times, the Points of View QAL block instructions are now finally available.  I changed the button image to this so you would notice it no longer says “coming soon” but “now available” instead 🙂  There is information for three sizes in the quilt instructions, and some images of what it would look like in two additional sizes on the project page where you will find the link to the download.

Actually I also changed the image because I had added a new CD of all batik fabrics to EQ and wanted to play with their color a bit.  I do so love batiks and there are some lovely ones.

So click the button in the sidebar, get the PDF download and go do some stash diving if you want to join me in quilting along on this project.

I did a bit of stitching on some of the pieces I had previously cut out in between writing up instructions yesterday.

So I stitched up the sections for my chain blocks that were cut. and now have a bunch of them done.

I’m trying to decide how big I’ll make this one – which is dependent on how many  different block combinations I can get with the fat quarter bundle I’m using.

There are a good number of fat quarters but many of them read really similar and I’m hoping to use three shades of the same color in each block – maybe – but I may change that plan.

In any event, I need to go press the folds out of those fat quarters (they are being stubborn) and then see which fabrics I want to match up and get a couple more blocks cut.  I’ve got the background pieces cut for several blocks so just need some “pretty” fabrics to go with it.
