Finally finished

In two weeks I will be going to Quilting by the Lake near Syracuse, NY to take two classes from Gail Garber.  I decided to send two quilts for inclusion in the quilt show that accompanies the session.  The quilts are not judged, which is fine with me.  But it's fun to see quilts that the attendees have sent, as well as quilts from the instructors.  Thus, I had an impetus to finish them.

The first one was made using lessons from the class I took at QBL last year from Sue Benner.  The class was fantastic and she's a wonderful teacher.  I love the brightness of this quilt.

The second is the result of a mini-workshop with a friend.  I mentioned this in an earlier post--we both worked on our own pieces.  

Actually the photos are reversed and I have no idea how to switch them.  But there they are...

Plisse is no more

My Plisse was the wrong size for me out of my error - I should have shortened the waist when I was knitting it.
I decided to do something constructive about it, instead of not wearing it. So, I tried to frog it to start again. The yarn, which had pilled badly, despite very few wearings, clung together and broke in many places. In disgust, I tossed the whole thing.

New Moderator Needed

I just had a baby and need someone to take over the knitalong. Preferably someone who is familiar with blogger, but it's pretty simply if you aren't. Please email me at becky at beckyanddaniel dot com with the subject of Hannealong Moderator. Thanks!


Has anyone knitted Brick a new man's sweater. If so, how difficult is it. I have knitted Ballerina and wonder in comparison how difficult it is. Thanks.
