Okay, I know I haven't posted in 3 months. I don't really have an excuse, I definitely have been busy. I also just haven't felt like writing. But, there has still been knitting and there has also been more quilting. On this snowy Friday night there is much I could write, and the post would be really long. Instead I decided to just put in a bunch of photos with captions. Enjoy!
My sweet baboo and I went to see Marc Cohn in concert in November.
He played in Portland at the Aladdin Theater. It was an amazing show! The song we danced to at our wedding is a Marc Cohn song.
After the show I got to meet hi and he signed a bunch of stuff for me!
I finished the Babies an Bears for Grown-Ups sweater. It turned out really good!
Here's the back.
Here's my second quilt top ever - it is for my nephew Kieran.
Here's quilt #3 - it is for my nephew Alastar.
Here's a Turkish cap from Hats On! that I knit for a charity function.Here's the front view. It sold at the fundraiser.
Here's another hat I made for the same fundraiser. It is a modification from the Lace Rib Watch Cap pattern from Hats On. We are raising funds for AWAIC - Abused Women Aid In Crisis. It helps women and children who are victims of domestic violence. This sold too.Here's the third hat I made. It's a modification of a baby hat pattern I saw in a LYS that I can't remember the name of. It sold too. We raised $5900 for AWAIC, but certainly not all from my hats!
This is the start of a glove I'm knitting for my dad for Christmas. He needs gloves for when he skis. They are fun!I took my first introduction to machine quilting class. Here's an example of my first free motion quilting attempt. I even got my initials in there! Not really of the quality needed for finishing a nice quilt there, but I'll get better with some practice.
So, that's my fall! I'm now immersed in holiday knitting! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your holiday season!
