Sweater Knitting and Quilting
One of my goals for 2015 is to knit sweater with yarn that I have dyed and spun. It is progressing nicely, but I have realized that I won't have enough yarn, and I keep putting it aside to knit something else - hoping for something to change! I now realize I have to either restart it - maybe a sweater with short sleeves, or try to dye and spin more yarn - I just worry about being able to match it.
I did get a start on quilting one of the quilt tops (photo of the Storm at Sea after pinning). I decided to try quilting wavy lines with a walking foot - something new for me - following the line created by the change in colour dominance on the quilt. The red backing is flannel I had - part of my 'using up my stash challenge'.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
