I finished knitting the black, maroon, & white afghan for a nephew on Thursday night. Today, I started the slow process of weaving in all the ends while listening to 3 episodes of “Craftypod”. It is an old show & some of the episodes won’t load, but I have enjoyed listening to it while knitting. I may do a single crochet edging in black on the sides. I’ll just have to see after I finish weaving in the ends.
Last week, I started on a baby quilt for a niece who is expecting a boy in December. The top is done with the exception of the second border. I am heading upstairs to work on that now. I am using “Baby Makes 3″ pattern. You are supposed to use 3 fabrics. I picked 3 colors (blue, green, and white) and cut pieces from my stash. I found green 2 1/2” strips already cut and used them for the first border. The back will also be pieced. I think that the batting will be pieced, too. How’s that for working from my stash? Anything produced wholly from my stash makes my husband happy, too. I told him that if I die before he does, my sister gets first dibs on anything in my craft room. That includes the 4 (!) sewing machines and 2 quilt frames.
