The quilt top is a bit on the wrinkly side, but I am very happy with how it turned out. I got the back done, too, but not until after these pictures.
I particularly love this fabric combination.
And on the knitting front:
This is the beginning of the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig Knitbot. I really like her Whisper Cardigan in the Spring 2009 Interweave and was on the verge of casting it on when I came across this more structured version, which I think I will be happier with. It is a top down design, so I can control the size. This was a natural white silk-merino from Blackberry Ridge, it is now Dark Cherry and Grape Kool-Aid flavored. I love how the colors came out. My other dye experiment this weekend came out less well. I don't want to talk about it.
And this is the beginning of Soleil. Not very exciting yet, but if I don't screw it up, it should be a nice summer top. The yarn is DK weight cotton, of some variety I've never heard of (and of course I didn't manage to bring a ball band with me so I could tell you).
I have several other projects I'm poking at or desperate to start, which is great timing, since it's garden season. Only twenty some years to retirement, can't wait!
