Ever closer

I only have ten blocks left for the center of the Pennants quilt! That means 70 down and a boat load of borders to go. I think I need more light yellows........maybe in the closet.....

One of my favorite blocks. This check material just glows. Kaffe, I love a purely platonic way, of course.

I scored this little guy at an estate sale this morning. I plan to reupholster it in some odd fashion, but I will leave the turquoise intact underneath in case I ever decide to sell it later. Nothing like a little "mid century" investment. I am still kicking myself for a chair I left on the curb when we moved a couple of years ago. I knew I would regret that one. UGH! And that is why I am a pack rat....and should most likely stay away from estate sales.

Now, since this IS a knitting blog...I have been diligently finishing my old Elizabeth I this summer. Remember her? I will have pics up soon. I am finished with the front and back and am now working both arms at the same time on one Knit Picks circular needle. It is A LOT of plain knitting and very tiny needles, so it is taking a very long time. Does anyone else get sleepy when they have to knit copious amounts of plain knitting?

That stool is awesome. The turquoise would actually go quite well in my room now....

Almost done with the quilt! It's looking good.

You're almost done w/your Eliz? I'd actually forgotten about mine.

And yes. Especially when it's copious amounts of knitting the same sleeve on size 2 needles over and over and over again.

I must be cursed! I knit MaryT with Carrie & she still hasn't finished. I knitted Na Craga with Gale and hers' is still a WIP. Hmm, Luskentyre ... It's a good thing I'm not knitting Elizabeth with you ;-)
