This is only the first part of step #5 done. There are still some half blocks that need to be made....which I'm hoping to get done today. I was so excited over how my 20 album blocks turned out that I just couldn't wait to share. :) I wasn't real crazy about the colors and fabrics I chose, but I'm thinking that this will turn out to be a rather pretty quilt when it's all said and done.
Even though my sweater is still in the beginning stages of construction, I still wanted to share pictures of it. This is the bottom 4" or so of the sweater back. After way too many "duh" moments, I finally got things figured out. I just wish the lace pattern showed up a bit better in the photo. The sweater is being knit using a Shetland lamb/kid mohair blend yarn that I spun up years ago. I was saving it for that special project.....which I finally found in the book "A Fine Fleece". Now I hope I am able to do the pattern and the yarn justice.
