For most of February we (like most of you!) have had cold, snowy or rainy weather. For the last three weekends there have even been some travel advisories in our area. Partially because of this Rob and I have spent a little more time than normal pursuing some fiber-related hobbies.
I have been working on my little on-line quilt-along project that I mentioned in my post called Winter activities. I strayed a little bit from the posted directions, but not too far. The blocks went together quickly and the piecing was fun. I decided to go with black for the sashing because of all the other colors that were involved. I am now working on the machine quilting and am using a variegated thread called antique Christmas and am doing some outline quilting and hope to do a little bit of free motion quilting as well. I've been doing a lot of reading and some practicing in preparation for this step.
Rob has been working on a very cute knitting project. Shortly before Christmas we found this self-striping yarn. He just finished this adorable little baby sweater. I think it is pretty amazing how the yarn forms stripes all on its own. We found the sweater pattern as a free leaflet near the yarn in the store. Here is a link to a .pdf of the pattern.
How about you - have you been doing any crafting during the month of February?
