My only slow stitching is the knitting I’m doing on the scarf using up my leftover fingering weight yarns. It now measures about 35 inches long. The pattern calls for the finished scarf to be 90 inches long, so I’ve a ways to go yet. My husband has expressed an interest in this scarf so it will go to him when done. That will also dictate further colour choices. I’ll avoid obvious pinks since he isn’t fond of those. Some of the yarns did a fun self swirl type colour pooling pattern. I have more of those that I can try to evenly dive down the length of the scarf.
I finished a quilt this past week. There has been a break in the rain and the wind so I was able to get out and get a few pictures. Here’s the finished quilt. And here’s a close up of a corner showing the diagonally printed striped binding. I still have all kinds of diagonally striped fabrics in my stash, enough to finish the rest of the quilts that are hanging around here needing finishing.
Some friends and I are doing a UFO challenge starting in October. I hope it gives some incentive to get some things finished that have been hanging around for a long time now.
I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.
