Time flies

P1040758The knitted bolero is done and the knitting needles are put away.
I am not sure how well the cotton wool blend will keep with wear, but at least the bolero is nice to wear as long as it lasts.
My arms and neck is happy I am done with the knitting bug for now!

P1040761This nearly done Dear Jane top is made by one of my students and I had the pleasure of seeing it on Tuesday.
She is so clever with fabrics and is piecing and painting fabrics to match the original Dear Jane quilt as close as possible.
Her quilt top is a feast for the eye - lovely work indeed!

P1040764I am currently working on a quilt with a lot of triangles. Since we are coming into the secrecy season, I can not show you or tell you more right now.

P1040770The finished blocks go into this box :-)

P1040767This blouse looks quite good on the hanger, but not so good on me!
I decided to cut it up, as it is 100 % cotton and suitable for "recycling" into something else.

P1040768It was quite fun to cut the blouse to usable plain pieces, throwing out the rest.
I will use the fabric for a specific project shortly :-)

  1. We are perhaps more contend with stitching than knitting. Good luck on your secret project :)

  2. What a lovely finish..... Just the thing to fight the chill of a draft..
    Was the crochet edge your idea? It is the perfect finish........

  3. You are a very good teacher Hanne. Your student's Dear Jane is just beautiful. I also love your knitting - just beautiful.

  4. Flott bolero du har strikket.
    Spennende å se hva du lager ut av skjorta:-)

  5. How fun to cut the blouse to use elsewhere. When I last cleaned my closet I found two skirts that I have never worn. I realized it was the fabric that attracted me to them, not the style. I with fabric they went.

    It's always fun to see your projects progress.
