Sorry on Sunday

I really need to apologize because it has been so long since I shared anything here. It’s not like I haven’t been doing anything to share, but I just haven’t been blogging. So let me share a little today.

I’ve been working my way through the Craftsy class (affiliate link warning!) Lace Knitting: Basics and Beyond with Eunny Jang. I am up to the final project now, a lacy scarf knitted with this gorgeous yarn.

Here’s a sample (unblocked) of one of the swatches I’ve been knitting. 

Knitting does not come naturally to me. It just doesn’t. I don’t think I’ll be a convert once I’m done, but I think I will be able to knit the shawl I started and failed, so that is a good thing. I think. Of course, I’m rethinking the yarn I got for that one, so stay tuned.

Maybe you’ve seen the pictures of various jelly roll rugs on Instagram. I got the pattern from the designer on Etsy (and that link is not an affiliate, just an ordinary share but you can also buy it at the Fat Quarter Shop). As we know, I have lots of jelly rolls! So I started one. Here’s the start.

I have also gotten to work on my Disappearing Pinwheel quilt. I got the rest of the pinwheels made and have started to make the blocks. Of course, I only have one made so far. And I accidentally destroyed one. Sigh.

And that is the current state of things. My plans for today include some Valentine placemats. And maybe more DPWs. And knitting. We will see.

Quilt on!

  1. No need to apologize! We can only do one thing at a time. As along as you are sewing or something, that is a good thing. I do think you could have stretched this post into three posts, though. When did the Disappearing Pinwheel crop up. Did I miss something?

    I think you organized yourself around the learning to knit lace well. I am glad you just didn’t give up.

  2. Disappearing Pinwheel has been around since January of 2014. Really.

    The knitting lace thing has become a real challenge. I don’t think I’m a knitter by nature though. I don’t really enjoy it much. The last time I knit anything was my oldest nephew’s Christmas stocking which my mother suckered me into because she was dying and couldn’t do it and there is a family pattern. That was 34 or 5 years ago. So not a high priority at all.

I love comments! Please share yours!
