another monday morning
I also got my mystery hat packed up and ready to mail. This is a swap I did on Ravelry. I haven't done a swap in a long time but a hat seemed very do-able. We were given a short list of color, style, and yarn preferences and then asked to knit a hat without knowing the name of the recipient. I chose a pattern on her list and some new to me yarn. The pattern was just enough of a stretch for me that I felt I was sharpening my skills as I knit. Hope to get to the post office this afternoon.
I got my quilt about 1/3 quilted on Saturday evening. I took a break yesterday - forgot how hard machine quilting can be on the shoulders and neck. I hope to get a bit done in the evenings this week and ready for some binding by next weekend.
Question - Are you part of a knitting or quilting group? Tell me what you love about your group. My quilting friends are scattered and busy and we rarely meet but I feel like I need a bit of community for the journey.
