It's an Anne Hanson design.
I love it ! !
It has turned out just the way I dreamed it would.
Came off the needle last night.
Just had to wear it today even if the temp is 87°F.
It was a long time in the making with lots of down time and by the time it was completed used just a smidge over 1300 yards ! ! !
Now comes a pullover, Henley-style sweater that was cast on early 2012.
Intagliata designed by Connie Chang Chinchio
Worked in the round from the hem up
it is already knit to an inch or so from the split for armholes.
So it is well on it's way.
I hope to finish this sweater before Fall - fingers crossed.
Well, that's all for today
Other than wishing you all a lovely rest of August.
It's FINISHED. ! !
All 1,250 yards of it.
A fab crocheted afghan.
Hostess of her own knitting podcast
On You Tube.
Last Suumer/Autumn she began AND finished!
a Gorgeous afghan
in sooo loverly feminine colors.
I HAD to have one!
Nicole could not be convinenced to part with her's
she graciously pointed me in the direction of the pattern she used.
I am tickled to have mine finished well ahead of any chill in the air arrives.
Our Summer has been the coolest in as long as we've lived here.
Not as much rain as we'd like, or need,
but moderate temps and no humidity until today
when it reached 93%.
I hope you your's has been as nice.

Lots of terrific quilting/sewing tips,
And friendly chatter,
And, of course, lots of sewing
To keep ya company while
At your own machine.
WHEW !! I've completed just over 100 of the triangle blocks!!
I'm working from scraps gifted me from my long-arm quilter friend several years ago.
Daughter Debbie and I have been using these
pre-cut stripes (~ 1.5" - 2.5" x 4-5")
as leaders and ender while working on other projects. They've been used in several projects over the years.
It's time to finish them off!
I'll be making triangle blocks 'til the scraps run out.
In the end
They'll turn into a quilt somewhat similar to this example
That was on InstaGram
Just finished a gift for the holidays ! !
One of only a very few.
Merino wool, Mulberry Silk and Tencel.
Lovely, soft, with a wonderful drape to it.
All 849 yards of it.
Happy to get off the needles.
RAIN, boy, oh, boy, did we have rain.
We were out driving in it.
Lots of water on the streets.
And, the windshield IS clean now.
Temp is down in the 70's, about to in the 50's overnite.
Lots of room to spread out.
Our goal was to complete four blocks by end of class.
Deb and Bev discussing the fun of paper-piecing.
(Deb and I have a blast taking classes together.)
Checking the placement of the next piece.
My four complete blocks
By the stroke of high noon.
Okay, it might have be just o a few
Minutes after the last stoke.
Not certain how I'll finish this
By Quilt Guild Tuesday evening.
How is this summer treating ya?
Yesterday's high of 91°F
Wasn't bad at all.
But today's 91°F
Sure enough heated the car up
To the extreme by the time class ended at noon-ish.
Must remember to crack a couple of windows while I'm parked next time.
Must put on my creative cap
For a finish to my paper-piecing
'til next time
