This morning I turned the heater on, is this a sign of Fall coming? Perhaps. Or perhaps it means we blast the air conditioning too much. But either way it's nice to feel the heat take off the chill in the morning. This morning I'm enjoying a cup of ginger tea (brewed by my sweet husband) and I thought I'd show you what I've been up to lately.Fireside sweater. I now only have the sleeves left before I seam it all together and add buttons and wear it! But for some reason I keep making mistakes on the first sleeve and end up having to rip it out. I'm hoping this time I've got it right.
I've also been playing around with texture patterns, I did this arrow one based on the Pow Wow quilt last night and I really like it. It's going to be a washcloth. But mostly it's just a test knit to see how the pattern looks. Maybe I'll work it into a pattern for something later.
I also sketched out plans to make myself Pow Wow quilt which I will hopefully be starting in October. I am doing a quilt along with my friend Sheralynn. I'm excited!
I've got a whole pile of projects I'm working on that need finishing up, but I'm mainly focusing on my sweater so I can get it done to wear as soon as the weather turns cold enough!
How was your weekend?
