On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.
For various reasons, my knitting has been patiently waiting and rolling their eyes. I was ignoring everything that needed a hook or needles, except this very simple diagonal scarf. I only had to think twice on the right side row and not at all on the wrong side. I just didn’t think I could handle more.
Very quiet colors for my very tired mind.
For some reason this old project called out very loud. I heard and dug out the pieces of this English paper-piecing project. I can’t remember when I started it, but I do remember working on it in 2007. My version of a Grandmother’s Flower Garden using reproduction 30’s fabrics.
Paper hexagons, fabric square pinned on, then trimmed to 1/4 inch from paper. The fabric edges are folded over the paper and basted to the paper.
I first made ‘flowers.’
Then I added ‘leaves’ around the flowers. The sunny yellow will connect all the flower units
I have a along way to go until this is big enough for my bed.
I hope the knitters and crocheters don’t mind a little quilting visiting ‘Yarn Along’ today.
