But after all this deadline-quilting, I really REALLY needed a break from quilting, so apart from the occasional binding (well, and cutting pieces for a new quilt... with a deadline), I have not really been quilting.
Instead I've been going back to knitting! So indulge me on a brief post about something non-quilty!
I used to knit when I was younger, and a lot in undergrad, when everyone called me "Granny" and snorted. Now, apparently, knitting is the new fashion accessory, as in, if you knit in public, you're cool. Well. Ahead of my times, what can I say, ahem hahaha :)
I only ever did scarves and hats and aborted some started cloaks (it just took too long).
But recently, I came across Spud and Chloe's Blog who had just posted a free pattern for a tiny elf - they looked so cute, I thought I'd give it a try!
Here's my progress so far: three elves in various stages of growing arms and legs :)
I learned i-cord knitting in the process - otherwise they still be arm-less :)
