So Chookyblue called a short notice zoom session for Sunday.
As she does!
It was a quieter than usual session. But still very good. Our hostess Chooky was on a binding mission, keep an eye on her blog for a great show and tell on all of that.
No pressure Chooky!
(What am I saying? Yes there is. I want to see pictures on your blog, lots of pictures of beautifully bound and finished quilts).
I dithered, unsure of what to do. First I tidied up all the thread ends in the Frankenmats.
Next I pulled out a much larger needle and tucked away the yarn ends on this knitted washcloth. Which I had knitted over Friday and Saturday.
It is square honest!
I seem to have pulled one corner out when smoothing it for the photo shoot.
There is Lucy of course and I did add one block onto the top, but stopped there, my fingers were itching to hold my knitting needles. So I cast on another dishcloth.
But I somehow managed to break one of my beautiful knitting needles!
(Here is a closer look at the lovely colours on the larger needles).
I had to quickly pull out my interchangeable needles and after selecting the smallest set in the box, I was able to continue knitting.
The knitters in the group, (I was not the only one) gained the spotlight twice during the session as we discussed needle styles and educated the non knitters. LOL
If you would like to know more about my lovely, lovely knitting needles, look here where you will see that they are made in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.
Tony did try to repair the broken one, but sadly the repair did not last and it very quickly broke again in the same place. I'll be off out to the shop soon to look for a replacement set.
I had to absent myself from zoom for a few hours in order to go to work. But I re-joined during my meal break and later once I got home when I added a few more rows of knitting to the days tally.
Chooky, thank you once again for a fun day. Lots of laughs, lots of chatter, lots of stories, lots of inspiration and most of all, lots of blogger love.
We all enjoy these sessions that you organise for us.
In other news....
The scrappy Fig Tree HST's that I have been fiddling with have made it this far.
I've pulled out an opened Fig Tree Jelly roll that had a few slices used in another project and I have started to play about with border ideas.
I'll keep you updated on any progress that is made.
And for those who are interested, an update on the jigsaw puzzle.
The majority of the detail has been found and placed. Progress has slowed considerably, but I still spend a little (or a lot of) time with it each day.
I'm enjoying the process.
I have two days off work, but they are looking pretty busy, I do hope I find time to sew.
Time to get out of the house and do some town chores.
Flu shot at work at 1.05pm, if the Doctor consents to do it as I still sound weird.
Then hopefully a restful afternoon, maybe with Lucy, maybe with my knitting needles.
But definitely in my armchair.
