So apparently, 'tis the season to be knitting. This is the second edition of a baby hat for the family caboose. I had to rip out the first edition because it was too small. This is the best pic I could get because this little girl is never still!
This is a chevron hat for Magpie. The pattern is from a Simply Knitting magazine. Pretty much knitted this one twice as well-the chart was wrong in the magazine. I really should trust my instincts when I'm knitting.
This is bad pic of a quick scarf I knit for my other niece-two strands of yarn knit together on size 19 needles. She was thrilled! Hmmm, all of this knitting is for nieces! I actually do have one other knitting project to show-I knit dad a new Harry Potter scarf. Need to get a pic of that one!
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
