Knitting UFO.

I always think of my Quilting as having UFO's but I guess one can have them in Knitting
as indeed I do.
It is August Bank holiday here in the UK and typical bank holiday weather. Peeing with rain !! and not very warm either. So the wood -burner was duly lit and not having any hand sewing to do, I thought I would sort out some of my knitting.

I started this while on holiday in Key West last year, and did intend to finish it as a Christmas present.

Well, Christmas came and went and we are now heading towards yet another Christmas. So I guess I should try and finish it.

I had forgotten how lovely this wool was. I was told about it by my lovely friend   
Deborah Kemball ( she of exquisite appliqué) who lives in Canada. The wool is by Brookland Tweed and is called Loft  it's so soft and as light as a feather. 

Think I just might finish it now.

Talking of finishes, we have had this large rock in our garden for over ten years, waiting for Mr M to make it into a water feature. Well our youngest son was here for a short stay and helped move it into position and yes, it's looking good.

Not a finish but a start. I have finally cut into my lovely Liberty Fabric and pieced a top.

I now need to visit my favourite quilt shop to purchase the wadding/batting and backing fabric, so watch this space. :0)

Back to my knitting now and a comfy chair by the fire..

Keep safe and keep stitching...........................Doti...
