I was really hoping, what with some cooler weather here, that my interest in some projects would re-kindle, and instead, rather the opposite is happening. Isn't it weird how we sometimes have the mojo, and at other times...well, bupkiss.
I purchased some wonderful Virtual Yarns re-issue of Bainen (Baw-neen), the ultimate yarn to show off cable definition. My intended project was Malin, which I knit a few years ago, and really liked, and I started it, and promptly put it aside. (How do you spell Meh?)
I turned my attention to finishing up a few things that have been on the list- and sewed some quilt blocks out of some fat quarters in my stash. Those basket handles are bias strips and were sewn on by hand. I now need to cut some squares, and triangles and sew together the top, and add a border. The idea here is to use up stuff that I already have.
Since I ditched my desktop computer (I share with FC now) I have a place for the sewing machine, so I'm quilting this throw that I've had sitting around.
Oh, and I finished this cute sampler from Little House Needleworks- I am really having fun doing cross-stitch.
I've been looking at this page from the September Group of Seven calendar, and sat down with my software and worked up a Fair Isle design using these shades. Hope to see that someday- after Minstrel.
So, if you're out and about, and see my knitting mojo floating around in the ether, send it home, will ya? I'd be most grateful.
