I seem to lost the urge to quilt lately. But I am happy to report I have been able to make a few more blocks to complete my pinwheel UFO.
All I have left to do are 3 more blocks to complete this final border row and I’ll be finished with the top. I need a quilt show to get my mojo back!! Well, there is a shop hop next weekend, maybe I’ll check that out.
As for the something new, I decided to try my hand at knitting. For a long time, I’ve admired the knitting that Rudee does. She’s an awesome knitter. So, I was in Lobby Hobby one day and this soft curly yarn was just calling my name. So, I bought it. I pulled out my trusty Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Needlework which showed me how to cast on. It felt very awkward, as did the first few rows of stitching. The stitches were very tight, but after the first few rows, it got a little better. I am very slow, but everyone has to start somewhere. This is what I’ve done so far
I don’t think this will replace my love of quilting, but I’m glad to be doing something creative.
Take care, and pictures of quilts on your blog would certainly be appreciated!!
