Doodle-head Stitches Episode 11

Thanks for watching!

Show Notes

Knitting: I finished my Sea Dragon Shawl except for weaving in the ends. Ends are my nemesis it seems... I have to force myself to weave them in so that I can actually wear my beautiful shawl!

I also shared my progress on my Hitchhiker shawl and Monkey socks.

I started not just one, but two new knitting projects! A new sweater called Hiro, and Zuzu's Petals, which is a cowl / shawlette hybrid and uses a pretty gradient sport weight yarn.

Quilting: The Jungle Baby quilt top is pieced. Now to figure out what I'm going to do for the backing.

The borders of the blue Over the Rainbow hexagon blocks are finished, and I'm on to piecing the first green hexie block.

I also finished piecing in the background diamonds for block 14 of 16 of Eldon.

Crochet: No crochet progress this week.

Cross Stitch: I'm still working on Part 4 of Chatelaine's Desert Landscapes Mandala. I stitched some of the beaded snake and I love how it looks.

Miscellany: We are slowly introducing into the household a new kitty, Pepé - she's an indoor / outdoor cat, and she belongs to a neighbor but spends a lot of time at our house. It's a challenge with the existing girls, but I'm hoping we can work it out. :) And CC and I are spending time playing a new-to-us game called Borderlands. It's one that we can play local co-op, and I'm getting used to the first-person-shooter gameplay. It's another good stress-reliever.

Happy crafting!
