Specifically, crazy quilts. I have wanted to make one, (the name alone fits my personality), and so I read the definition...
A warm bed covering made of padding enclosed between layers of fabric and kept in place by lines of stitching, typically applied in a decorative design.
Urf. I don't sew. I kept considering the fact that I wanted to make a quilt.
Then I considered a fact. Knitting, when finished, is a FABRIC.
If I make a quilt top of knitting... Hmmm.
And I have a backing which is a large sheet, the size I want the blanket to be. Hmmm, again.
I chatted with Mom about it, and mentioned my latest
And so I have started my quilt. I have some swatch squares, (I knew there was a use for those things), and I have some started project pieces that I decided were much too fiddly to ever complete, and then the actual, crazy, just go with the idea part...
The little red bow is to show the front. I know it looks ragged at the moment, but when I start adding it together, it will even out. But it will, indeed be a very loose, not planned, part of my knitting.
And I think it's going to be a blast. I am knitting it along with other projects, but in the back of my mind is the little hamster wheel spinning, 'what yarn will go with purple? Do I have any novelty yarn that I can add to the right side? Where will I put the knitted daisy I want to put on?'
And, because I like to crochet edgings, but usually don't have a place for them around the house... I now have lots of places to put "stitching"...
Onward to the madness!!!
And I know that it's a day late, but P is for Photo bomb. Ding did that quite well with the first picture... She walked in and started sniffing, right as I snapped the pic. She likes quilts, too, I take it!
