I have been working away at my hexagon quilt slowly but surely. I found this video, by Jackie Wills, on how to hand piece hexagons very useful. Her little mantra, "the smaller your stitches the finer your work will be" keeps singing through my mind as I stitch away. It's good to have something to focus on because, as you can see in the basket, I have a long, long way to go.
I made my daughter a little tartan-ish tunic top from the Sweet Little Dress pattern. Cute, simple, only took a couple of hours, perfect for Fall and she loves it.
I also made up a few quick headbands from scraps. As you can see my daughter's hair is getting long and somewhat unruly. I used an old hand drawn pattern that I must have found online about when I started this blog. I can't find it again now but it is charming in all it's early-internet-hand-drawn-and-scanned-in-crafty-sharing of simple ideas. A quick google search did find this one though which is pretty much identical.
And lastly, a finished knit for Andy. This simple neck down v-neck from Knitting Pure and Simple. He only really likes stockinette stitch sweaters so these are perfect for knitting up while watching summer movies. It is knit in Malabrigo, type and colorway of yarn lost again!
