Catching Up

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted...time just keeps marching along doesn't it?  I have been very busy....I finished a sweater, a top-down from Knitting Pure and Simple.  I was easy and quick because it was knit with bulky yarn on size 15 and 17 needles.  I like it very much.


I started that sweater because I was very frustrated with this one:

this is supposed to be part of my SWAP, but I'm not sure it's going to make it.  It is kid mohair is supposed to look like this:

I like the way it is turning out, except that it might be too big.  Ugh!  I am going to keep going and see what happens.  It's an awful lot of work for something that I'll never wear!
I also finished a quilt for my sister-in-law, who will be beginning chemo very soon.  Everyone in the family wrote on a heart and another sis-in-law and I did the construction.  I finished the borders, quilting and binding.  I know she will love it.

That's all for now, more later...stay tuned!

Your knitted pieces are lovely and this quilt is so heart rendering. It's just beautiful and will be very appreciated I'm sure.
