This pile is for making the back for this quilt. These colors match the flea market fancy fabric (and others) in the quilt top really nicely. From left to right, they are Kona charcoal, coal, melon, ice frappe, and lime. The binding's going to be lime, too. I'm still not sure how I will quilt it, but I'm excited to get going again on this quilt.
I've also been working on my knitting; I try to do a little bit every day so my cowl will be done soon.
My purling has improved a ton since I've been working on this project. Here's the link to the pattern if you want to know more. I cast on 10 fewer stitches than the pattern called for, to make it a little shorter.
I am still working on some gifts and my circle quilt. I have the blocks for 5 rows (out of 8) completed now. I also found out the other day that my new home, the greater Seattle area, is home to the top 15 cities with the least sunlight in the US. So even though I'm now in a house with big windows and more light, this is the time of year when there's less and less light and I'm in one of the darkest parts of the country. So that's my excuse for all the dark pictures lately. I'm doing my best to learn a little bit more about photography and see how I can improve my photos. Please be patient. :)
