FO: Big Log Cabin

Log cabin blocks are a forever favorite.

FO: Big Log Cabin

Really, I find them so comforting. And when I was asked to make a baby quilt in navy, grays and white, I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make one giant log cabin.

I used 2.5" strips (I had a roll of precut white strips, which jumpstarted the cutting process) in Kona Nightfall and miscellaneous neutral shades (all Kona).

The scrappy back is a mix of navy prints from the stash. The quilt is 43" x 44".

I have already started a new big log cabin this time with a Denyse Schmidt plaid and bright Kona solids.

Again, I am using 2.5" strips, and seriously, it is a super speedy quilt. And as always, the log cabin block feels limitless!

FOs: Lots of pouches

FO: Ice-dyed Petal Pouches

When a dear friend (who is your sister in sarcasm) gives you some ice-dyed fabric, you must try to do it justice.

I decided to make two Petal Pouches (one for me and one for a birthday gift) using this amazing fabric. This was my second time to make the pattern, and it produces such a nice pouch. The shape is fun, and using a metal zipper just feels fancy.

I also recently made a pile of open wide pouches.

I can't believe this was my first time to make these pouches. Anna's tutorial is nearly five years old, but for some reason, I never got around to it. I used fusible fleece on a second set (I will share those later), which helped them keep their shape.

And most recently, I made two gifty pouches using Jeni's Triplizip pattern. Somehow, I still have a million zippers, so I suspect there will be some more pouches in my immediate future.

FO: Pistachio and Gillyweed

Last year, I knit the Drachenfels shawl using some of my very favorite yarns. I used: Hedgehog Fibres Sock in Pistachio, a gift from Jeni, leftover MadelineTosh Sock in Big Sur (originally used in another green shawl, Daybreak), and Moonrover Wyld in Gillyweed (which I continue to proclaim is the bast green ever).

It was so nice to wear Drachenfels in Wisconsin this month.

The winter there has been fairly mild, but it felt nice and cold in comparison to Houston!

Every stitch of this shawl made me happy (and I have learned that shawl knitting is my favorite), although I didn't stick strictly to the pattern (partially human error, partially wanting a slightly smaller shawl).

And currently, I'm knitting the Find your Fade shawl, in a palette that Lisa Frank would appreciate!
