The Wurm Project and other unravelings…

Update on the Wurm Project, a hat knitted in Noro variegated wool.  After knitting 12 rows, purling one row, then knitting 13 rows, you turn the cuff to the inside and pick up and knit the cast on stitches along with continuing to knit.  This is really a cool way to make a double cuff.  Go to Ravelry for this pattern by Katharina Nopp.  If you don’t belong to Ravelry, it is free to join.

I placed the needle through the cast-on stitches in the photo above to help it lay flat.

Got Circular Needles?

Got Circular Needles?

I keep dropping stitches and can’t pull the stitches tight between needles so I really need to get some circular needles.  I hope I can get them locally.

Update on the Paton’s Lace Sequin Cowl.  I was going to just rip the green and decrease stitches but ended up ripping the entire project.  I really need something to keep my neck warm in raw weather so I’m going to use up the leftovers to make a scarf.  I still have another small ball of sparkly green–remember to use your pets to hold your yarn if necessary.  Haha.

Hi—I’m Candy P. I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and write this blog about quilting. I love the entire process of quilting from design to piecing and appliqué, to free-motion quilting on my Janome. I have been sewing since I was five and started quilting in 1991 with a group in NE Minnesota. We used cardboard templates and scissors and did everything by hand. I have since made traditional quilts, donation quilts and Quilts of Valor; I’ve done paper piecing and foundation quilting but now really enjoy improvisational piecing using scraps from my stash or my hand dyed fabrics and making art quilts. I am also currently trying to finish any and all unfinished projects. I am so far behind I can never die. I have always been a maker, a sewist and needleworker, running the gamut from hand embroidery to macramé, knitting, crocheting, crafts, book binding and mixed media projects. I have taught a lot of handicraft classes including fabric painting, origami, and calligraphy, Dancercise (who remembers that) and my own exercise classes. When I’m not in the garage dyeing fabric or in my studio, I’m at Zumba or walking on local trails and photographing art or whatever catches my eye. I currently belong to Crystal Bridges, AQS, The Quilt Show, NWA Modern Quilt Guild and the Van Go-Go Girls (a local art quilt group). I occasionally make it to the piano and the golf course and enjoy cooking with my husband and generally wreaking some kind of havoc with my daughter. You can read my previous blog at Kandykwilts.blogspot.com but you cannot read my blog as northwind at The Quilt Show, apparently lost forever. I write about my current projects, mistakes and all, and often tell you what products I use (with no compensation). I am open to suggestions about blog posts and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about my projects or posts. Comment or email me. Feedback is most welcome—just be kind.
