Four and Twenty Blackbirds

Facebook makes blogging somewhat OBE, but still...

I suppose that I made things more hectic than they needed to be, taking on a quilting project in the middle of Tour de Fleece. However, I bought a quilt while I was on our trip to Branson, and I got the bug to do some patchwork. I pulled some airplane fabric out of stash (been there over 15 years), and I found a couple more pieces to go with the group of six fabrics I already had, and then made a quilt top for Mitchell. I have had my last few quilt tops machine quilted, but the lady that did them retired, so I'm going to have to find someone else...

Dubonnet

I made Thea Colman's "Dubonnet," using Elsebeth Lavold's "Silky Wool." This was a fun little cardigan that I knitted in the car on our recent trip to Branson.

Ropes and Picots

I made an older pattern from Interweave Knits Magazine, the "Ropes and Picots Cardigan" from the Winter 2008 issue. The pattern is available to download, though. I used the recommended yarn, Rowan Scottish Tweed, but in a different color.
