Twinkle Throw

It's been quite awhile since my last post. The holidays were kinda crazy. Didn't help any that I spent a good part of the holiday season fighting cold after cold. This continued all the way through January. Started off February with the flu. Decided to start a new knit project. The Twinkle Blanket caught my attention. I chose to make it larger by using an Aran weight yarn with size 9 needles. I had 15 skeins of a lovely Knitpicks yarn in my stash that was absolutely perfect for this project.

I've been quilting whenever I have felt well enough. My latest quilt is a winter quilt. The center is a panel that I purchased some time ago. I decided to frame it in red and then do a border of appliqu├ęd snowflakes. I still need to put on the last border before it will be ready to be sandwiched and quilted.
