I found this great flannel on a trip up to Austin. I plan to surprise the boyos with chess pjs. They are completely obsessed with chess right now.
My pilgrim quilt is with the quilter. I told her to do anything she wanted with them. I'm looking forward to seeing them when she is finished!
I started this sock after deciding I despised the one I worked on during in-service. I cast on during a conference meeting and decided I would at last do a feather and fan pattern. I had to keep ripping it out and redoing it as I was trying to make a 72 stitch pattern fit on 64 sts. I ripped it back to the ribbing one final time and knit a plain row and increased the 8sts. Then the knitting was fine. Except for the broken needles. I lost count but I think I broke four Britanny's and assorted bamboo needles. Ah well. I dug out these old Pony's when I got home. The tips are really blunt so it's difficult to do the K2tog but at least these won't break. I hope. The yarn is much louder in person. ;-D
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.
