My daughter’s Christmas tree skirt is finished and I am very happy with the result.  Maybe I’ll make one for myself.

Here are the twined knitted gloves I made for her.  The socks are almost finished.  Twined knitting takes so much longer than normal knitting, but it’s worth the work.  I think I’ll make an Ascot with the rest of the yarn.  They look so tidy.

I’ve started working on the Splendid Sampler.  I couldn’t decide on which colorway to use so I made both.  The second block has a lot of tiny pieces.  It took forever to cut and my knees locked up.  But I’ll live.

Trying to Finish

March 3, 2016

DSCF1106  The back was finished, so I dragged my batting.  Dot was not much help.  She kept falling asleep.  She liked the fleece, but I would have had to piece it in two places.  I got out the Warm and Natural.  I didn’t really want to use it, but it’s 96 inches wide, so, no seaming.  Now, there’s only two  yards left.  I’ll have to order some more soon.  I hope to get the quilting accomplished tomorrow.  We’ll see.
