It's time to publically proclaim my goals for this quarter and link up to Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap. Remember, if you missed linking up the first quarter, you can join in on this one!
I'm hoping for more finishes from this list in this quarter. Since I only finished one of the five I had on my list, those four are going on this quarter's list. I'd like to say it will be possible as my classes are wrapping up, but last year, once spring semester let out, I started working full time over the summer. That was due to extra help being needed thanks to the flooding in western North Dakota, which will not be happening this year, but we are busier than last year already, so who knows.
Enough shop talk, as my part time job isn't really that exciting. What is, is my WIPs. I was going to take current photos of these today, but the wind has been insane, so older photos will have to do. Honestly, some of these projects still look the same today as they did the last time you saw them.
1. Garter stitch scarf - this will definately be a challenge to finish. Knitting for winter when summer is approaching is not appealing to me at all. However, I started this scarf in the fall of 2010 as my first big knitting project. I have since then completed other knitted items and neglected this one. I have no excuse especially since I love the turquoise yarn (even though it is acrylic yarn, not wool). Fiber content is probably why this is still unfinished. I initially bought inexpensive yarns to learn with, as well as the cheap aluminum needles. I now like to use natural fibers and have a love for bamboo needles. Anyway, finish it I will.
5. Sparkle mini quilt - I finally decided on this one to be added to this list. I hate that it hasn't been finished and really, all because I made an error and have yet to take my seam ripper to the last block. Sad, but true.
