At the beginning of the year I came across a design for a temperature tracker quilt that I really liked. I’ve been tempted by the concept for quite some time, but haven’t liked any of the variations of designs enough to actually do one. This design is found on the blog Canuck Quilter designs in her post Temperature Tracker Quilt. After I saw that I went shopping for fabrics and found a wonderful Kona Fat Quarter bundle at Mad About Patchwork called Aviatrix in Summer which had enough colours in it to be able to get a gradation for the temperature quilt. I started the quilt last week and have the first three weeks of January done. I’m planning on doing the rest of this first month of the year today.
My slow stitching has been knitting on a sweater. It’s a pattern called Flat White by Casapinka. There are so many of her designs that I really like. All that’s left to do is the sleeves and they will go fast since it is made using one of my favourite yarns, worsted weight Malabrigo Rios. The purple is the colour Sabuduria and the colour work part is Sand. If I keep going on this sweater without getting distracted by something else it will be my second knitting finish of the year. I finished a long cowl earlier in January but don’t have pictures of it yet.
