Things were feeling a little out of control as my pile of almost finished projects was starting to topple over. (There is a distinct difference between almost finished and unfinished - my unfinished list is embarrassingly long!). It was time to get with it, just do it, don't procrastinate!
Remember this quilt? Pretty in Pink made last month:
Finished quilt measures 38.5 inches x 45 inches
It now has binding! A beautiful chocolate brown fabric with dusty pink polka dots, which frames this baby girl quilt just nicely.
And another picture to show you some of the quilting detail. Straight line, horizontal, quilting with a stitch length of 3.8 mm. I always use 100% cotton thread, this time a quite dark Gutermann thread as I wanted to feature the quilting lines and the stitching.
Next? The Simple Yet Effective Scarf made with Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn (colorway S188) is finished and blocked. I have discovered that blocking is the secret to making your knitting look great. It magically smooths out all those uneven stitches, and gives a lovely drape to the finished garment.
This was such an easy and very relaxing knit. Mindless, no concentration needed, just knit and purl as desired. This scarf has been added to my knitting projects on Ravelry where my username is knitknat.
It feels good to have these two projects finished. Now back to my Star Blocks and their sashing. More pictures tomorrow. Have a great sewing day!
