I am trying to get the angora rabbit lining finished on these mittens before the snow flies.
Looks great and oh so soft. We had snow yesterday but back to 70s today. I've been spinning for a SAL with a Fall theme. Also need to get back to my looms.
I love the pattern and angora lining....oh so soft..
Projects? Well I am quilting after sewing 10 skirts the past few weeks. I have 42 11" square blocks with 18 more to go. After next week, I need to get back on this lace cardigan I was working on.

Someday it is my working toward goal to get Grace frame to make my hand stitched quilts easier to work with. Now I use qulit hoops on frame. while this concept works, I like the concept of roll of battling,back grown fabric and top all on one wold be easier to control. Might also Strawberry tug proof too.

Fiberwise, I am "knitting" spiral scarves for the homeless for Christmas. I figure homeless women need a lift with something pretty that is also warm.
When Hancocks closed down last spring they put the skeins to make these down to 25 cents each the last day. I bought three dozen. They all have a bit of metallic in them that makes them look glittery.
I'll be making fleece neck gaiters for the men and those women who aren't "girly".
I made some sample blocks for my quilt commission, for her to see some real blocks/color etc. It isn't that fun to talk shop with someone who doesn't know the first thing about it... but... I did get some ideas, and then-- Wow the perfect one jumped out! It was on Craftsy, ON SALE!! Win win!!!!!!!
I can put the scripture fabric in the middle white squares. She is over the moon!! <3
My "fall" project (for the most part) is to wash and block/dry all the lap blankets, shawls and scarfs I've knitted this past year. I want them all done and looking as professional as possible before I take them down to the nursing homes and/or give some to the transportation vans (3 vans that carry elderly to medical appointments for free). Know I can wash them all on "warm" with light tumble; but plan to lay them out on towels to dry. This latter will take awhile due to the lack of "indoor" space for it.
May put some of these into the dryer set on a very soft/low setting never used before. Not sure as I don't want to ruin these items. (I'm new to knitting yet these have turned out pretty good.)
