Not much quilting going on here… This is the block I finished last week. I few comments: it is way too long. It is supposed to be a 12 x 12 inch block, but with 70 rows plus the border rows, there was no way to keep it to that size. So, it will either end up as a pillow, or I will add to the blocks which I will join to it (the latter sounds fun, actually – mix some rectangles with the square blocks…).
I had trouble with the yarn overs. I would do them, them have to redo them when I was knitting the wrong side of the block. Oh, well, that is what practice is for, right? Also, I can see that my knitted stitches are loose, so I must knit a swatch (don’t even like thinking about it, but must get in the habit of doing it) before I start knitting the vest I want to make for myself.
I’ve started another block, which is done in the diagonal, but stopped half-way as I don’t thing the short rows for the border are correct. Will see if I can get some answers tomorrow, or Saturday.
In the meantime, I have just wrapped all the Christmas gifts that are going to my husband’s family in Maryland. Yes! I will mail them in a week or so and they can decide if they will open them right away or wait until Christmas. Next, I need to think of my boys and husband. I have no idea what they will get (Santa here is stumped). It was easier when the boys were younger (I just wrapped all the toys for my little grandson – it was so easy to figure out what to get him!).
I hope your day is being just as productive.
