caressing searching through my yarn stash for one more little bit of red to finish my raspberry beret I came upon a blanket that I started Y-E-A-R-S ago…… with some linen I had inherited, and I can live with the colors…. I just wasn’t enjoying the knitting on several dpns all lined up ….so I put it away…… as I pulled it out this time, I remembered that my mother had sent me a long set of circulars, probably about the right size and I would switch to circulars and get going on it. So, I did……
thanks mom for finding these things and also for sending them to me.
blanket in progress
back to my mother, she mentioned some applique she was doing and not turning under the edges….. I guess we can call it lazy applique… and that conversation turned on a little lightbulb in my brain and I went upstairs to the futon closet (where I store all my fabric and works in progress) and dug out a quilt top I had finished Y-E-A-R-S ago with denim hearts and stars
lazy appliqued all around…… so I rushed it down stairs with a nice fuzzy pink sheet…. hung out the futons in the sun (no room in the closet) and laid out that quilt for basting. (I baste my quilts on the floor….I can pin the edges directly to the tatami mat flooring….)
here it is being modelled by the couch –basted and ready to go!!!!!
so the question of the day…. (week, month, year)….is.
Which takes longer………sewing a blanket or knitting a blanket?????
which reminds me of something Gandhi said……
“there is more to life than increasing its speed…”
