After a day or so of slow life...resting with the sinus or cold thing....I was back to "busy"!

These sweaters were finished and sent to the grandchildren, pink for the twin girls and orange for their older brother!

I am still enjoying working on my "Mitered Crosses" knitted blanket. [ I did discover that as often happens with my distractable mind, I made more work for myself by not completely reading how to knit the colorful mitered center could have been done with far fewer loose ends if I had followed her directions!LOL!] Also, I am practicing with my non-dominate hand and knitting the lavendar background in the "picking" rather than "throwing" method of there is an even greater irregularity here, the true "handmade" look!

These two art quilts have just been given labels, "Morning Mist--Springtime in the Ozarks", and "Wild Roses". Both have been donated to an art auction for the local women's shelter.


Now I fly to meet my new grandson, a month old....5 weeks! I can hardly wait and will be back with photos from Minnesota!

The sweaters are just precious - you must be a fast knitter. I admire you trying to change your knitting process - I've tried but given up.

Love the two quilts - how nice that you are donating them.
