I have been putting in some stitches on my next Life is Beautiful block but mostly I have been working on an old treasure that I excavated this week when cleaning a closet.
I found a half finished baby sweater! This is a great old knitting pattern called "Leaf and Lace" and in my pre-quilting life I made it many times for baby gifts. You can read more about this pattern here.
I was happy to find this treasure and motivated to finish it. I have spent a lot of time this week locating the mistake that resulted in it's exile, pulling out stitches, and trying to figure out how to resume the pattern. It's a really nice change of pace for me and I remember now how much I enjoyed knitting before quilting took me over.
There are so many interesting things to learn in life and so little time to fully pursue them all!
What are you working on today? Remember that we only want to see your hand stitching ... there are lots of other link ups in blogland for machine made projects and the weekly Slow Sunday Stitching link up is for hand stitching only.
