Still knitting away on my cowl. I am on my third ball of wool and am now using the 4.0 mm needles. I have about 15 rows of pattern to complete, then a few rows of garter stitch and then it's the picot bind off on both ends.
This was a great week for machine quilting. I put on my glass gloves and away I go. Glass gloves are almost the same as those fancy gloves you buy at the quilting store, with the exception that they cost a lot less. I bought mine at Marks Work Warehouse. I managed to get a bit of quilting in each day. I tried to minimize stitch-in-the-ditch, but there were times when it was definitely needed. I used to tissue paper trick in a few spots and lots of free motion in the background areas.
