I have thought long and hard before posting about this project. As anyone who reads my blog knows that I have a love/hate relationship with knitting. I wanted to try one more time for a sweater. I don't know what happened, but it seemed to have clicked this time. This is the first of four pieces for the sweater and it is coming along nicely. I am now at the decreasing stage for the sleeves on the back of the sweater. I hope in a few days to start on the front and then move on to the sleeves. I am so stoked about this project and hopefully it will be the first of many sweaters to come. I am using Lion Brand Wool Ease in Wheat for this one. Off for a cuppa now.

(don't know why the red is reading orange here)
I decided to start all over with my class design sheets. I had tried to use a different type of collage and there is nothing wrong with the first one I put together. It just was not what I really wanted to work with. Before class had started I wanted to use some of my gingham in my stash as I have loads of it sitting on the shelves. I have five yds of pink, three yellow and three or four yds of the red. As my project from the samples will be a wall hanging, I thought the gingham would suit really well and I would not have to go out and buy anything. I am now a very happy camper with this project and can proceed without a creative block. Sometimes our first ideas are truly the best ideas. Off to stitch a bit now on a wip of the applique variety. I am way behind.

I have added five more stars for my quilt, bringing the total up to 26 so far. I really need to buckle down and work on this in the evenings if I want to finish this sometime in the next year. To my credit though, this has been a slow work in progress quilt. I only work on the stars when I take my parents to dr. appointments or have to go to the hospital to sit. I am thinking I want to work on it more now so I can get this one on the bed. Off for a cuppa and some domestic chores that needs to be taken care of. Have a great day and may your needles always have thread.
