KNITTING AND STITCHING

I finished the caramel colored block and started the third block of the  sampler blanket.  I had a little trouble telling my front from the back but after a nap, I had that figured out!  I will be taking it for waiting room knitting today when I wait for an eye appointment!  Sometimes I get right in and others....well, let's say I am always glad to have some knitting with me!

When I get home, I will be heading in to our Quilting Group--I haven't been to a meeting in a long time and will look forward to see what everyone is working on!  I began stitching this one together;  it is very slow.  I can't remember how I stitched the last one-whether it is easier to sew from the bottom up  or not.  I think it will get easier on the third row because it will be established.  That's my hope, anyway!  At group, I will be working on the star blocks because it won't be so demanding to work on!

  2. I have no idea how you sew those pieces together on a curve like that. It's boggling my mind thinking about it. It's a real beauty so it must be worth the trouble.

  3. Waiting rooms are great places to sneak in some knitting. I like the colors you’re using for the blocks.

  4. For knits that are hard to tell back from front, I like to hook one of those removable markers (or a small safety pin) on the right side. Then I dont have to think about it.

  5. I agree with Nancy. I like the colors you're making the blocks with. I spent almost 6 hours in doctors offices with Mom today. And I forgot my knitting! I couldn't believe it. So frustrating. I get a lot of knitting done in waiting rooms.
    Hope all went well at your eye appointment.
    Blessings,

FOR THE NON-HAT-WEARERS!

I know, I make so many hats but I hate to wear them--only in a blizzard will you find me wearing one since I got glasses--20+ years ago! lol...
