Slow Stitching Sunday

I want to thank everyone for reading and commenting over the holidays. I scheduled most of my posts ahead because I knew I would not have time with all the festivities. I’ve kept up with reading comments, but not responding. I’ll try to get to the questions soon.

I thought I would baste a quilt for hand quilting over the holidays. Instead, I’ve been knitting. My attempts at knitting a hat were failures. So I moved on to scarves.

Daughter #1 is my beautiful model. The darker scarf was made for her, the lighter one was gifted to Daughter #3. Daughter #2 lives in Arizona so a bulky scarf is not needed. I did send her a hand knitted dishcloth! I’ve also started another dishcloth and hope to finish that today.

Have a good one!

    Your stitches are beautiful (and so is your daughter). I don’t knit but I used to crochet and scarves were one of my favorite (quick) projects. I still have the almost pristine zig zag baby quilt I made for my firstborn in 1963. We lived in Chicago at the time and it was definitely needed in his carriage. I’d love to see the dishcloths you make.

    Hi Katy, if you are enjoying making the scarves, Operation Gratitude requests them for their care packages for military personnel. No parameters except approximately 6″ wide and 48″ long. Just knit them up and mail them off. I usually wait until I have half a dozen or so ready, then send them. I crochet mine and made 32 this year. If you would like more information, let me know.
