Infinity Scarf

I promised Big R an infinity scarf with the yarn left over from my pink and orange socks. The scarf's length would be either as long as she wanted it or until I ran out of yarn. Luck would have it there was only enough yarn for the length she wanted.

My new rink side knitting project for the Spring hockey season is the Miette sweater. This one is knitted top down. I plan on making full length sleeves and adding 3 inches to the body so it comes to my waist and is not cropped.

February Quilt Squares

Here are my next installment of squares for the Monday Monday Quilt. This round is olive, turquoise and purple. I did purchase a 6-1/2 inch square grid. I still haven't figured out all the different grid lines in each quadrant.
Block 8 - Pinwheel
Pinwheel was rather simple.

Block 9 - String Block
String block was fun. I paper pieced it to a 6-1/2 inch square to eliminate the guess work and wasting scraps by cutting them too big.

Block 10 - Snowball Variation
This was another straight forward pattern.

Block 11 - Bow Tie
Some how my purple "squares" ended up more like triangles.

Block 12 - Winged Square
I did not like this one. Too many 1 inch squares. My greens are too similar. Kinda of boring. Some how it ended up too small and crooked. I needed to add buffer strips to make it the correct size.

Block 13 - 9-Patch
This 9-Patch was fun.

 Here is a possible place mat setup. I think this set has too much solid green.
