Just Waiting!

While waiting for company to arrive............in a few days; I am entertaining/distracting myself with odd projects. I ripped out an old sweater that was beautiful but I ran out of yarn (it was the first wool to spin which I bought to make a sweater out of and didn't purchase enough) but as WoolEnough reminded me, you don't have to waste yarn! I ripped out the old fronts, back and one sleeve, reskeined and washed the wool and hung it out to dry! All ready for a less dense sweater than the fisherman knit one that it almost got to be!
Started a little project with some scrap yarn........a free pattern from the JoAnn Fabric Store site.
I started a new project 'cuz I finished David's sweater!

I am on the last 2 hours of Millie's quilt..........I am watching the last spool of thread cautiously!

This is on the design wall........it will be a gift. The first one I pieced so quickly that I knew it was going to have to be made again and I have even ordered some more Scripture panels to make 2 more. This is a great project to use up scraps on hand but I did have to purchase yardage for the backing which will result in some more seed remnant!

  1. Wow you are a busy girl! Multi taking & all! To rip out an entire project! Yikes! As bad as me having to undo hours of quilting, but happy I did it in the end.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Stage II

I have so enjoyed the knitting on this shawl ! And now the lace section begins-it will be time to think a bit more; I'm hoping it...
