Stitching Hiatus is now Over

It's been ages since I wrote a stitching post.  Not that I haven't been doing any stitching, I've just taken a break from writing about it.  I have missed the encouragement that that I get from my online friends and readers.  You are my conscience that kept projects from wallowing, always urging me along.

So, what have I been doing,

Crochet:  I've been working on a Cabled Hooded Cowl .  Pattern from Red Heart LM6196  I had some worsted weight yarn on hand and decided to use that as I wasn't sure that I would use the finished item much.  At this point, I have two repeats of the pattern  to complete and then I'll be ready to assemble the pieces.

Knitting: Not much in this area lately, though I have almost finished two pairs of socks that I knit on straight needles, two of them, not the usual four or five.

Quilting: Lately I have been working on a couple of wall hangings.  They all now have the binding stitched on by machine.  Next step is to turn the binding to the back and hand stitch it down.

Finally, I received this box of yarn from the kind people at Yarn Canada.  They have sent me some samples of a new yarn they are carrying.  I'll be sharing this with you in a future post. For now, I'll keep you in suspense.

In the past, I published my needlework posts on the same day each week, and I found that wasn't really working for me anymore.  My work schedule didn't always allow for that.  Going forward, I plan to post when I have something I want to share, whether it is once a week, or every couple of days.  So until next time, happy stitching.

Good to see you back. That cowl looks an interesting pattern - how on earth do you knit socks on two needles! xx

Loving those wall hangings. That orange would look so good in our orange and linen dining room.
