My knitting needles have been busy.
I made three helmet liners for this year’s Operation: Warm and Fuzzy campaign.
My regular readers will remember this, an activity my former co-workers and I would do each year for the soldiers. Even though I am no longer working with them, I’m still helping out this year as they lost quite a few knitters.
This is block number 1 from the Building Blocks book that I told you about here.
Block 1 teaches simple knit and purl stitches.
This is the beginning of block number 2 which offers a lesson in reading charts.
I’m enjoying the book and will spend more time on this project now that I finished the helmet liners. As a matter of fact, I am working on this today for my Slow Sunday Stitching project. Check out Kathy’s link here to see what everyone else is up to.
Do you know Selina? She blogs at Selina Quilts and just recently offered a giveaway to celebrate her 300th post. I was the lucky winner of these…
Two cuts of some adorable red fabric, a pin cushion and zippered bag that Selina made. You have to check out Selina’s post on how she made the bag…genious!
In my next post I will share the projects I made while attending the American Embroidery Conference last month.
Enjoy the remainder of your Sunday!
