Hello Friends! 11 days ago I tore the meniscus in my knee, so I have not been able to do much. I see a orthopedic surgeon on May 1, so fingers crossed he can fix it. So, while sitting, I have been able to do a few finishes. First, I finished my Diamond Painting.
Sorry about the fuzzy photo. I was trying to stand on my one leg and capture the sparkly of the tiles. This was a wonderful, thoughtful gift from a dear friend. It is a photo I took right outside my front door a few years ago. It is a favorite of mine. I love how it sparkles and can’t wait to frame it. I have recently started a Diamond Dotz, which is the same concept, but the dots are circles rather than the square tiles in the Diamond Painting. I definitely think that the Painting gives a better coverage than the Dotz, but both are beautiful and sparkly. I am addicted 🙂
Next up is a scarf I knitted on the way to and from a mini vacation hubby and I took before I hurt my knee.
I love knitting this type of scarf in the car. It’s a no brainer. One more to add to my stash for gift giving 🙂 And one more skein of yarn out of my stash.
I also finished knitting this cowl:
I LOVE this one! The pattern was a bit tricky to follow as far as what rows to do, so I had to be careful where I was. In fact, in the beginning, I do think I left out a full 4 rows of a pattern, but it is not really noticeable. And when I wear it doubled up around my neck, no one will no for sure. It is knit with one ball of Ella Rae Season. Very soft and squishy and very easy to knit.
And lastly, I finally started the 2018 Mystery Sampler from Linen and Threads.
My fabric is a OOAK from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics and is more of a peach color with hints of gray. I am stitching with DMC 53 and Black and I absolutely love how the stitching looks on this fabric. It is weird how the lighter rows appear to be lines. I am not too sure about the black border yet, but that design really didn’t look well with the variegated thread. I tried it several different ways, but it just didn’t look right, so I decided to go with black. I probably should have went with a dark gray, but I am not ripping out now. I will add more black sections and hope to balance it out.
I have a couple of other projects I had worked on, but it is too difficult to get to them right now for photographing. So they will have to wait until they come back out. So, what are you stitching on today?
