On the Side...

Sherri at The Loopy Ewe is having a First Quarter 2011 Cable Challenge.  The idea is to knit anything with a cable and finish it this quarter.  Yeah, by the end of March.  I decided to jump on in because Grace had asked me to make a scarf that matched the mitts I made her last year.  Easy enough!  I gave her a few options and she chose On the Side (Ravelry link) by Abby Tohline.  So far it's knitting up pretty quickly and is a simple seed stitch with a reversible cable down one side. I'm hoping I can finish it before the winter is over...I'd like her to be able to use it!  
 

I'm alternating working on this with hand quilting my nine patch quilt.  It was a Christmas present for Andrew's girlfriend Dayna and she's waiting patiently for it.  One of these days...

I also got back to my machine last weekend and hope to have a finished top by the end of this weekend...I'll post that when it's done!  I'll quilt this one on my Pfaff since my longarm is still in storage, which is where it will remain for the foreseeable future.  Someday it will see the light of day again...I hope!
