Diversions

Published by Shana | Filed under Knitting

I was highly productive while avoiding writing my final paper. Now that I’m trying to finish my sister’s Christmas present, I’m working on everything but it. Deadlines are crafting dementors.

I knocked out my first clapotis for a friend. It’s about 3.5 skeins of Cascade Luna. I still don’t know how I feel about cotton yarn, but this stuff was nice to work with, and seems to wear nice.

Holy clap.
Holy clap.

I think I only did two repeats, both horizonatlly and vertically. I finished it in a weekend, by far the fastest I’ve ever made a scarf.

All that’s left to do is hand-sew the binding on the quilt I made from this fabric. I’m pretty happy with the result. The owner should be making her world debut in about 2 months, so I’ll post the top after I give it to her folks.

I’m pretty pleased with my quilting, though. I did something other than stippling.

Back up.
Back up.

I bought fabric for the nephew’s quilt. It’s fishy, so I think he’ll grow up to be a marine biologist. Hopefully, I’ll start that this week or next.

I made Oliver some catnip toys using scraps from the quilt
