It's very satisfying work trimming the triangles down but I still have a good number to stitch together. I didn't realise just how many triangles were involved in making the swoon quilt. I do have a mini quilt in my sights for this month to use them up.
In trimming down my scraps I trimmed some of the wool fabric I had left after making my skirt for the 'Crazy about Wool' blog hop.
This fabric is a very soft grey wool with a check in it. I am having a 'wooly' give away. I have 16, 5 inch charm squares to give away to one winner and 20, 3 inch squares for the second winner.I will ship anywhere in the world. The give away will remain open until midnight Sunday 27th October (GMT) All you have to do is leave a comment saying whether you would like the 5 inch or 3 inch squares
Here in the UK in late October, early November Innocent smoothies who make delicious fruit smoothies dress their bottles with little hats and for each smoothie sold wearing a hat 25p is donated to AgeUK. All the hats are knitted by knitters across the country and donated to the cause. Each year I take part and I'm running a little behind on hat production.
This is what I have made so far this year and I really wanted to donate 50 so I need to get busy and get another 25 hats made in the next week. The hats knit up quickly but the pom poms take slightly longer to make.
I'm going to do a little knitting whilst reading The Crow Trap by Anne Cleeves. This is a murder mystery set in the north of England. It's the first of her books that I've read and I'm really enjoying it.
I hope you've had a good Friday
