Big Projects


I might be working on too many Big Projects all at once.  It feels like it’s been a really long time since I finished something.  Maybe it’s time for a set of coasters or a dishcloth or two.  I’ve got this blanket going now, too, just a plain 12-stitch/18 row basketweave thing, knitted in my old standby, Paton’s Classic Wool, color “winter white”.  I just buy one skein of this yarn at a time, and I just kind of work on it occasionally.  I try to change skeins where the stitch pattern is delineated, just in case the different dye lots are really different, but otherwise, this is a boring little project of no worries, keeping me quietly entertained in between sock yarn squares and quilt top hand-stitching and the sweater I began over the weekend in black worsted weight yarn because that’s what I already had in the cupboard. 

Also, I went on a cleaning rampage in the Snake Palace (my garage attic) and found this:


That’s fourteen “Drunkard’s Path” blocks, hand-pieced by me in 2001.   I know, right?  So many quilts happening right now.
