I have been doing more knitting than quilting of late.  This is the scarf I am working on now.  It is called "Stiller", I got the pattern from Raverly.  Easy to knit and I like what I see so far.  I did a provisional cast on  as I will join the ends to make a cowl when done knitting.  I am using Sublime chunky merino tweed.  The photo looks a bit on the blue side but the yarn is gray, must have blue undertones.

 This cowl is almost complete.  I have the I-cord to knit along the top and bottom of the cowl.  I found this pattern on, fun to knit and easy.  The yarn is sock weight.  I purchased it from Knit Picks at a sale they had.  There was no wrapper on the yarn so I can not give you a description but the colors are brighter than appear in the photo, reminds me of a box of crayola crayons.

I am working on a quilt also but have decided to wait to show a picture.  I best get back to my machine.  Happy knitting and sewing to all.

May god bless you and our country

That's an interesting way to make the cowl.... gives you the ability to have your pattern run longways :*) It will be lovely! Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I cannot knit; well I did once, in 1980 (it didn't end well), and am in awe of those who can. The yarns you've chosen are wonderful!
