April's News

This April has been full of weather surprises: some very warm days, and then a cold week with lots of new snow and traffic chaos. During the cold days it was still perfect weather for warm knitting, so I knitted two pairs of socks, one in light blue

and the other in yellow and teal:

Then I used the rest of the yellowish yarn with brown for a perfect pair of mittens to go with my warm winter coat.

I finally had the inspiration and energy to machine quilt this starry quilt, the only one I have been working on this year.

I quite like it. The stars are made with two different blue plaids each, and the red 16-patches have a random selection of various red shades. All these fabrics are recycled, mostly shirts from the men in my extended family, and some fabrics come from sewing projects never finished.
