WIP Wednesday

Quilting homework done and I'm ready for class tonight.

Here's a closeup of one of the squares although the colors aren't entirely accurate. It's darker than the top picture but lighter than the bottom picture. This is what I get for taking photos on my living room floor at 8pm.

February Mystery Revealed

I test knit this in December for our Mystery 220 Ravelry group and FINALLY I can reveal it. This was one of the funnest things I've ever knit, I love the dongles!!

Beret for fun

I knit this beret for fun. It looks a lot more complicated than it was. I love easy and instant gratification projects.

Speed Knitting

We had a knitting race on the Mystery 220 group. So much of the country was shut down for a few days that we decided we needed something to amuse ourselves. Luckily I live in a place that has beautiful weather but I wanted to show my support. Our race was scarves vs cowls and I was in the cowl group. One would think that the cowls would go faster, they seem easier right? One of our members even counted the stitches on the scarf and on the two sizes of cowl just to make sure it was somewhat fair. The scarves almost won. We pulled ahead right at the end though. I'll never need a cowl where I live but this was a great pattern and I have a friend who is going to find it in her mailbox soon.
