Remember Works-in-progress Wednesdays? I barely do. What is it about this school year that has made it nearly impossible to free time up for quilting? Actual work on my sewing machine is at a complete standstill other than emergency mending jobs. My creative corner is a MESS! But as something of a consolation, I have been doing some handwork and knitting while watching TV some evenings. I'm binding the Log Cabin quilt -- I only have two partial sides and one corner to turn. And then a label.
I've been working on a test knit project -- using this handspun from a few years back. It will be another shawl for my 12 in 2012 challenge, but I can't take a picture of the finished product. Besides, it's only half done. The yarn is from a 4-ounce batt by Butterfly Girl Designs, called "Mardi Gras." It's always fun to work with handspun.
And I started a new shawl, a Citron in some red Knit Picks Shadow. I decided after the Camping shawl that I needed a break from the lace for the rest of the year! As for what I'm reading (for Ginny's yarn-along) I'm mostly finished with Mossflower and borrowing the Mark of Athena from a friend.
