Shades of Blue

I worked until 1pm today so I had some time in the afternoon to get a few things done. I'm just about done knitting this shawl. It is called Cinder. It's from Jen Lucas' book called Sock-Yarn Shawls II. I actually skipped a few rows at the end. I thought I had enough yarn but it looked like I wasn't going to be able to finish it. I'm so happy that I don't have to rip out any rows. It's so hard to rip out rows and know exactly where you are when knitting lace rows. Skipping a few rows was a much better solution. I'll post pictures once this shawl is blocked.

I pieced the backing for one of my quilt tops. I had originally bought this fabric for another project. I think it will look great on the back of this quilt.

I think any backing would look good with this scrap quilt. There are so many different fabrics that make up this top. I finally figured out how to quilt it. This step always seems to take me so long!! I'll post pictures when I have some of the quilting done!

    1. Trying to find a little time whenever I can! I'm glad you like the backing. I bought it with you at Fabric Extravaganza a few years ago.
