I think you are so talented with needles of any kind, but this knitting leaves me speechless........and that doesn't often happen-lol-I think we all could get more work done without so much technology...phones computers, tv's, etc..
I tried to work on a prayer quilt today and hubby worked outside. I answered two calls for him and felt I had to answer my daughters call, in case it was Avery. It was Gus this time. Poor little fellow fell and chipped a tooth. He is pulling up, but too scared to try to walk. He will be a year on the 20th. She was nervous and wanted me to come. I told her it really wasn't anything I could do and I have 2 quilts that have to be finished for Sunday. I have one down and one to go. I may not sleep this week-end-lol- Somethings mamma just can't fix....
How right you are - some things mamma can't fix!
I hope you can finish your quilts AND get some sleep. I so admire how much you achieve, all those bags and purses and these quilts.
Thank you. Knitting prevents a guilty conscience when watching TV, relaxing with my feet up and so on. As long as I don't forget to count during the patterned parts it is a no-brainer.
I did get the quilts done and I slept last night and hope to tonight, as well. Tomorrow is Sunday. One quilt goes to a 4 year old boy, Jase, facing another heart surgery and the other to a dear friends husband, Rob. He has been battling cancer/leukemia for 7 years doing homeopathic therapy, I think its called. He says he still feels 'ok' but his blood count is very high and now he can't get it down like before. He has decided to do chemo......
Simply gorgeous Martine, I envy people who can do all that beautiful Fair isle knitting.
Which reminds me I haven't seen much of Sigrun from Iceland on here. I saw it was her birthday the other day. I hope she is o.k.
You are right, her last post was in September.
She is a wonderful knitter. I find it hard to get the tension of the not-in-use colour not too tight and not too loose; gets better after a while, but when it has been a long time since doing Fair Isle knitting it is not easy. And Sigrun has such beautiful projects!!
Love them both!
Thank you. Next one will be a smaller size - three untouched balls of pink plus some white and marine odd balls. Cardigan this time, and maybe raglan sleeves.
Fantastic knitting. Isn't it funny how a photograph details so much more.
I thnk it's the flash on the slightly different texture of the yarns, one is just that bit smoother than the other.
Great work created when no computer
Thanks. It reduces my stash and increases the content of my charity box.
I like the effect of the aquas! Enjoy!
Very nice, I like to do a bit of knitting now and then, Jean xx
Thank you. Now and then applies to me to.
wow, you did a great job, great use of your time without the laptop :)
Thank you. I seem to have become rather dependent on a computer :)
