Off the needles…. and on to layering

andIsn’t this some gorgeous yarn.  You know I don’t really like pink but this combination

is so pretty.  And while I’ll never be a “wear lots of pastel girlie pink” girl, I am using pink a bit more in the things I knit and occasionally made a pink quilt.

This yarn is one of the Loopy Legend yarns called Linda’s Beautiful Day and it is beautiful.  This is the Truffle Shawl I made — the photo above shows the colors the best but here’s some shots of the entire shawl — just a little scarf really to keep the neck and shoulders warm.  Very easy knit.

I’ve started on the Joji MKAL but will wait until I’m a bit farther along to show photos of that and for anyone working on it who wishes it to remain a mystery to them and not see anyone else’s photos, I’ll try to remember to post that it is a spoiler photo.

Let’s not forget the sock I previously posted all about with it’s unusual heel strip and construction.  That came off the needles this week too.20170510_11  It may be a while before I get the second one done with MKAL, the Rhapsody KAL, and Camp Loopy starting next month but we’ll see.

 

And after several weekends of planning to get in the sewing room to layer a quilt — proof it is actually happening today.

And with only one false start – before I had the top clamped in place I realized that I had grabbed the wrong size batting package.  I would have been so made at myself if I had starting pinning everything only to run out of batting.

Just stopped for a coffee break so now time to go find the tin of pins and get started pinning.
