Quilting again ...

In one of the groups I am involved in (I find the the most precious friends in that group) we are running an UFO project. We picked an UnFinished Object and commited ourselves to work on that object until it is finished. We post an update every 10th of every month. Of course, sometimes life gets in the way, but we all try to have an update each month.

I am working on my big quilt, the one that is going to be on my bed, once... You already might know I am talking about Baltimore Bliss. There are 25 blocks and today I finished block 17. Eight to go. It might be a finish next year!

As you can see, every block is repeated in a white block.
And of course I have been knitting. My newest shawl is now like this. This picture doesn't show its colour, it's more blue instead of grey.

Lazy blogger?

Have I been a lazy blogger last weeks? I don't think so, at least, I wasn't lazy. But yes, I did post irregular. I used to post once a week, Mostly in weekends, but there has been a lot on my mind, so I simply forgot!
But now I am catching up. I have been spinning on my spinning wheel and a lovely skein is a fact. Not enough to start a knitting project yet, so I have to spin another skein this winter. Meet Running Mouse:
My Border a Week project is almost done. Only eight, nine weeks until Christmas? Okay, I admit, I am two weeks behind, but I'll catch up this week (I hope).
A new shawl is finished too. The Stroll That Stole My Heart, a lovely pattern of Sweaterbabe.
Now there is a finish again, you won't be surprised that other projects are started today. There was a lovely blue skein that screamed for attention, so I casted on New York Lullaby, pattern is Nurmulintu by Heidi Alander.
And a combination of two skeins were calling out my name when I visited a wool event last weekend. I think I will cast on tonight :)

Never enough ;)

As you all said, a woman can have never enough shawls. So I am just knitting on ;-)
I finished Ruffled Feathers this week. It is now washed and blocking, so more pictures next week. But ahead of those here are some pictures of the unblocked shawl.
There is another one I didn't show. It's was a gift for a friend, so I couldn't show before. here is Långstrump.
To compensate all the  knitting I did some blue stitching. My borders from Randje per Week are almost up to date. I am a week behind, but I'll catch up during my vacation that starts end of the week. Yeah!!

How many shawls can a woman wear?

The answer is of course, only one at the time (or two perhaps, maybe even three). But the fun is't only about wearing, the fun is also about knitting them. so I knit me another one.... and another ... and another ...

I made some progress on No woman No Cry. Round 119 is done now. Unfortunately I can't show a recent picture, because it is too big to show. All stitches are wrapped on the needles and no pattern can be seen.

I am also doing well on Ruffled Feathers. A green no brainer (Melissa will have fun reading this). almost half way done now.

The Stroll That Stole My Heart is doing great. I've done two reports now and I will try to add a picture by Monday (edited: done!).
My latest finish is Green Hearts, a testknit. A really quick one!

It's been a while ...

Almost two weeks since I posted! I have been knitting though, ans I have a finish again. In fact I have two finishes, but one of them I can't show, because it is going to be a gift to a friend.
I started and finished a lovely shawl again. Red Death Ball. Look and judge for yourself ;)
I also startes some new ones. A ruffled shawl, a bit of a no brainer and a shawl with cables and lace motifs. Picetures next week.
This week I have been quilting again on my bed quilt. And for this I also promise to show some pictures next week.
Nothing else for now. Take care!

Getting used to work

As always after a (long) vacation I need some time to get used to work again. I think I am a pretty average woman LOL
So I took some time to knit and stitch after work and forgot to post a new blogpost.
That leaves me with a pair of finished socks.
Blue Socks Again.
My borders are reaching a length that doesn't fit on a picture. So I decided to make a little video to show all borders. I am not sure if I can put the video here, but I'll give it a try.
