The flower blocks are very easy to piece and come together quickly. The large size, about 16 inches, are great for making a quick baby quilt.I'm defiantly making more of these blocks. But, probably not use this border again -- at least not for awhile
When I'm not piecing quilts, knitting fills my need to be doing something productive. Whenever I leave the house I take my big L.L. Bean canvas tote, with several knitting projects inside. It's great to fill otherwise wasted minutes -- waiting at the doctor's office, at the DMV, in line at the bank, etc...
In the past few days I've been knitting baby/children's hats.
I love this pattern!
As you can see here I've made several in the last day or so, and now have the time spent knitting one down to a little over a hour!
My model is about the size of a year old baby --
at least I think so!
These hats will be going to the Etsy show later this year, in Brown County Indiana.
I will be taking mostly quilts to the show, but thought I could add knitted baby items as well.
This patterns is quite fun to knit. I love watching the flower shape emerge from the needles!
It really doesn't take much to keep me amused --
just a ball of yarn and needles
and I'm happy for a long time!
