Remember when I said that I only quilt for an hour at a time? Well, I broke that yesterday and quilted for over 2 hours. I was listening to a good book and I was on a roll so I kept going and now I'm halfway through the DWR quilt! I'm expecting to have this wrapped up this weekend.
I was going to work on vulture borders in the evening but I was kind of tired and decided to sit and crochet instead.
I've been working on the shawl and afghan. I'm at a holding spot with the dark blue duster. I'm finding that the yarn color that I picked is difficult to work with in the required stitches so I'm in search of another pattern for that yarn. This shawl will likely be wrapped up pretty soon. I'm going to keep going until I run out of yarn. I think it will be a good wheelchair shawl. The single crochet section at the top increases over the shoulders and will have a 2 button closure. The patterns section goes straight down. I like how this will look but I'm not inclined to make it again. That collar section took forever in back loop single crochet. I might do some math and figure out if I can do it in half double crochet instead or I'll just try another pattern. I really prefer double crochet for donation items.
The super bulky afghan is half done. This one is going fast. It's folded over here so it's twice this wide. I like how the pattern is looking. This is my first blanket in super bulky and I will probably not be inclined to use that weight much. I find it a little fatiguing on my hands. But the up side is that it works up really fast.
These, and the vulture quilt, are my projects for the rest of the week. But today is dyeing day so I'm not sure I'll get much of anything done today.
