Beautiful Wall Brick Quilt

This small quilt was made for the Border Wall Quilt Project (https://www.leamccomas.com/border-wall-quilt-project/).  It is 8 in X 16 in.

My inspiration was by President Trump’s tweet on December 18, 2018 that the border wall would not be made of concrete but of “artistically designed steel slats, so that you can see through it ….It will be beautiful and, at the same time, give our Country the security that our citizens deserve.” 

I added green leafy vines up the steel slates to add help “beautify” the wall.

Three More Knitted Hats

The first hat was knit using the pattern Jason’s Cashmere Hat by Melissa Thomson.  The yarn is Malabrigo Yarn Rios in colorway Diana (#886).  I think I may keep this one.

The second one was knit at my husband’s request.  I used the Regular Guy Beanie by Chuck Wright.  The yarn is Cascade Superwash 220 in black.  

I then used the leftover yarn from the above two hats to knit the third one seen below. I used the pattern Gingerbread Hat by Angela Whisnant.

Two Gingerbread Hats

Recently knit these two hats using the pattern Gingerbread Hat by Angela Whisnant.  I bought Super Traveler yarn by Dragonfly Fibers at my local yarn shop (Yarn Kandy) in colorway Turning Leaves.  They only had one skein but I thought I’d have enough to make a hat.  I was wrong so I went online to order more and ordered Traveler rather than Super Traveler.  Only needed one skein of traveler weight but needed about 1.3+ skeins of the super traveler.  The hat knit with traveler weight is on the left in the photo.  Added Big Bad Wool fur pompoms to the hats (bought at Yarn Kandy)

I have been knitting hats lately.  Here are three that I’ve finished.  The first one is knit using the pattern Bankhead by Susie Gourlay.  The yarn is Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted (186 Lagoon colorway).

These two are knit using the pattern Regular Guy Beanie by Chuck Wright (only I used a K1P1 ribbing rather than K2P2). The yarn is Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted (105 Cocoa Bean and 186 Lagoon colorway).

Blue Wisp Scarf

I actually finished this scarf a few weeks ago.  It was knit using the pattern Wisp by Cheryl Niamath (have used it many times in the past).  I used one strand of two yarns knit together — Blue Ridge Yarns Silk Shimmer Lace (in Waterfall) and Malabrigo Yarn Silkpaca (in Azules).  It is about 10 in X 64 in after blocking.
