The heat is keeping me from doing too much of anything outside so I've made a bit of headway on a few projects, only one that's worth showing but I do have a small finish that was made possible by a great tool that's been laying around forever. There is something to be said about going cold sheep it makes you dig into those crates and drawers for ideas!
First here's an update on one of the blankets I'm working on. All of the squares have at least two rounds completed and I'm working on the third color.
I hate the ends but I it's going along so well I might have to dig deep and come up another variation,
Here's my finish, it will be heading out in the mail this week. It was a quicky and I enjoyed both parts of the project. I was originally going to just do the hat but I happened to run across the fleece and it was on sale and I knew that I had a skip stitch blade I bought a few years ago but never used. Dug around and found it and I can say that I'm sorry I didn't use it back when I bought it!
Blanket with edging, the skip stitch made the whole process so easy.
Completed project and just in time for the season to start, not to mention the baby!
Pears are on too, so I'll have to make a bit of time for pear butter, Spiced pear slices and pear jams.
I've took a bit of time this weekend to hunt down a couple of patterns this weekend, I have a request for something a bit old fashioned but I wanted something with a twist, found this, Mystical Lanterns and I think it will be an upcoming project for the fall. It's just too hot to even think about large blankets right now.
