A few weeks ago I recieved my usual newsletter from Black Sheep Wools which also has videos about new patterns and products. I was drawn to a lovely free pattern from Ravelry called the Zick Zack Scarf which uses 2 x100g balls of different variegated yarn. I have never thought to use different variegated yarns together in a pattern but I could see how it worked well. 3 weeks later my yarn arrived and I was excited to get started. Well! After unpulling it 6 times over a period of 2 days, ( I amazed myself how patient and persistent I was), I realised knitting with 4 ply yarn and size 3 needles was not working for me as the stitches were splitting and I kept ending up with excess stitches. That was it, no more, forget it. Then I thought I would give it one more go using size 4 needles and yeeyyyyyyy.
I designed a label for one of my quilts that came back from the quilter just prior to Covoid19 lockdown and have been stitching it.
Sorry about the shadows. I put cutting mats on the floor and crawled along trimming back the quilt edges ready for binding. Oops! No fabric saved! Once again I have found myself cutting strips of different fabrics used in the quilt to sew together for the binding. I hope it works. My knees have been playing up ever since so I hope the pain goes away before the next quilt has to be done.
I hope you are enjoying some crafty time. I have another project I am soooo wanting to try but that can wait.
