Mid-May Mystery

It's been a long time since I made a market bag. I thought it would be a fun quick mystery knit and I was right. It's such an easy way to use up dishcloth or any other non-expensive yarn.

Hexagon quilt?

Whoever reads my blog regularly knows that I run a Mystery KAL on Ravelry. One of our members name is "rocketgirl." She started reading my blog and commenting. I always try to check out who's leaving comments when I don't "know" them.

I, in turn, started reading her blog. She was very encouraging about my quilting - which is fun for me but nothing like my love of knitting. She, on he other hand is quite quilt and sewing gifted which has been fun for me to read about.

Earlier this week she proposed that we do a hexagon quilt.

Being the non-savvy quilt maker I had to look it up. This is what I wrote her after I googled it:

Just googled it………….. NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!!

I think I’d rather knit it.

She is no quitter and suggested that we make table runners, nothing big. I wrote back and said I'd make one flower this weekend and then let her know. This weekend turned into one evening of cutting the templates and the next evening of sewing the flower. I fell in love with the process. She was going to do the same, wait for the weekend but ended up making her flower early as well. Both of ours are non-similar but I love the both and can't wait to make more!!

May Mystery Revealed

The Storm Cloud Shawlette was our May Mystery. the final clue was posted today so I can blog about it.

I wanted mine a bit larger so I used 10.5 needles and three strands of lace yarn held together. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

More beanies

Kevin's friends don't get tired of them and I'm glad I don't get tired of making them. These are for Brandon and Jon.
