Yester-year Challenge Month #2

Quilt Monster in my ClosetI'm linking up again with Quilt Monster in My Closet for the Yester-Year Challenge.  Time to pull the projects out from the back of the closet, knock off the dust and be done with the project.

I finished another block from the 2008 Patchwork Party...

....not huge progress...but it is progress.  I'm good with this.

I've also been working on an old knitting project.  I'm not sure when I started it...but I do know that I started it before I started quilting for people....probably about the time my youngest started kindergarten...that is at least 10 years ago...he will be a Freshman in high school in the fall.


This knit throw measures about 35X50 and is knit with a micro fiber from Lion Brand Yarns.  It is deliciously soft and snugly.


The pattern was very easy to follow...maybe not 10 years ago when I was chasing little boys, but it was when I picked it up again...and created a funny wavy edge at the top and bottom.

That throw is gorgeous and I am seeing all sorts of possibilities with the block. I keep picturing it in my scrappy brights.

Your throw looks great. It must be very satisfying to finish something after such a long a time - I should have a sort through of knitting ufos as well!

They both look great! Any idea what the pattern name is for the throw. I am a "beginning" knitter and looking for some fun patterns now that I can knit & purl. I'm getting tired of so many scarves!
