Design Wall Monday

I managed to finish the top I posted about last week. 
We are looking forward to another snowy day here in MA.  It should be a nice day to spend with my sewing machine.

Stash Report February 7 2016

I love the feeling of finishing things.

My Ambiguous Cowl is ready to wear.  I love the pattern and the yarn--Hikoo Sueno.
Yarn Stash Report:
Yarn in this week:  0 yards
Yarn out this week;  510yards
Yarn in YTD: 0 yards (this will soon change!)
Yarn out YTD:  610 yards

It seems like forever since I finished a quilt.  I started this quilt a year or two ago--can't remember exactly.  There were a few completed blocks in the bin.  This quilt required 48 10 inch blocks. 
One of our guild members presented a workshop on this quilted tote.  

Fabric in this week:  0 yards
Fabric out this week:  17.5 yards
Fabric in YTD: 4 yards
Fabric out YTD:  17.5 yards

On the Needles

Working on ESK February KAL--Starfighter Hat.  I repurposed the yarn from the cowl for January.  I am using Dream in Color Everlasting in Bluefish.  I cast on the Spiral Cowl 4 times and gave up.  It is not a difficult pattern.  I finally figured I didn't like the yarn for the cowl but it will be perfect for the hat.
I am off to Judy's for some inspiration.

Design Wall Monday

Every year my LQS has a Machine Embroidery BOM club.  This year the shop owner designed and digitized a project she called Revolutionary Flare.  The embroidery and some of the piecing is done. I hope to finish piecing the top this week.

On the Needles Friday

An almost finish--Ambiguous Cowl.  The only step left is to graft the edges and weave in the loose ends.
