Finished Vacation Projects

I've finished three projects since the first of the month. The first two projects are quilts I made for DS #2 and his GF. I started these quilts 18 months ago for Christmas 2008. I started stitching the binding them while we were driving to NYC and then took one more night to finish them.

This is my son's quilt . . .
And this is his GF's quilt . . .
And here is the happy couple with their quilts.
I won't tell you that it was 98 degrees outside when we took this photo.
But I will tell you we were sitting in a well air conditioned hotel room.
Yesterday I showed Cascade Soft Spun yarn I bought at Purl.
I crocheted an Urban Shells scarf for my DIL with it.
I started the scarf on July 3 and finished it on July 11.
Here's a close-up view of the scarf.
The coolest part of this pattern is the scallops on the ends and the edging are crocheted along with the scarf. When you're done stitching the rows, you're done with the scarf. How cool is that?
I'm happy to have a few finished projects. I'm working hard to get a few more done. My list of WIPs is getting a little long.

Next time I'll show a few of my class projects from the Knit and Crochet Show.

Sweet P

Doesn't it feel good to finish things....the quilts are great. The couple looks nice and cozy even if it was hot out. I can't believe you made that scarf in such a short time....WOW!
Take care.
