These are some of the projects I actually finished in 2006. Still missing in action are an old-cars T-shirt quilt, a scarf I knitted my for former mother-in-law, and three hats I knitted as Christmas presents.
Colleen’s Quilt, three years in the making and finished the weekend before the guild show. I had to register it before I finished it, and it changed categories at the Laundromat!
This motorcycle T-shirt quilt was done in about 12 hours the day before a motorcycle show, as a sample of my work for Quilts By Beth.
This quilt features T-shirts from the Stevens Point Area Catholic Schools (SPACS) system. I made it for the silent auction at Panacea, as a sample so people could bid on a custom-made T-shirt.
Hat One, modeled by Jack. It was intended to fit a grown-up. Jack has a pretty big head, but it didn’t quite make it.
Hat Two, a perfect little tissue-box cozy for the Packer fan who has everything (else).
Hat Three, Kevin’s Packers hat. Merry Christmas!
My first sweater, made from Guideposts magazine’s Knit For Kids classic pattern. Cast on in the hospital with my favorite [out of gauge] needles the day after Tommy was born.
Tommy’s Blanket was made with Lion Brand Homespun, in strips which I seamed together.
Jen’s Scarf was made with Plymouth Encore worsted in a pink heather. The pattern is the Yarn Harlot’s one-row handspun scarf.
