A new sample from my own pattern, Hocus Pocus, to be a class at Bear Patch. Made with Rowan fabrics by Kaffe Fassett, mostly. The first photo shows half of the quilt, I don't have anybody home to hold it up for me to get the whole thing. One thing I really need to come up with is a better system for hanging quilts for pictures. I quilted it with a pantogram called Flower Power. The colors in the pictures look a lot more faded than it actually is.
Some knitting highlights: a simple scarf using Noro Silk Garden yarn and a pattern from Ravelry
Socks for Leisl, a BD present, they are on the back burner at the moment while my impulsivity makes me do other things
Another scarf from a pattern on Ravelry by Yarn Harlot, the yarn is a synthetic and nice and soft, I bought it at a place in Spooner,WI.
Finished a quilt of Nancy's--
Just sent off a package to Dan with a stocking cap and scarf, among other gifts. Yesterday we got to surprise him with a gift card at the service counter of the grocery store he goes to, that was fun. Thank you to Vons for arranging that!
And now I am on my way upstairs to work on star blocks for a new Block of the Month class. Beautiful fabric! The fire is burning hot in the woodstove, the Christmas lights are on, a little music and -20 outside. Poor Bob, had to go to work! I thought I might have to go out to get a couple more stocking stuffers, but that plan might change unless the thermometer makes a recovery!
