Keepin' busy

3 quilts basted and ready for quilting. Top quilt is my Fat Quarter Stars QAL top, middle is a colour challenge quilt for our guild's quilt show (on April 14th and 15th) and the big one at the bottom is my Oh My Stars QAL top. I know how I want to quilt the colour challenge one but the other two I am completely stumped. The Oh My Stars quilt is my March UFO so I would like to finish it this week. 

After two weeks of rainy, snowy, cold weather, the sun finally shone yesterday afternoon and I was able to do a little knitting outside. This is a cardigan for my dad. This picture shows the true colour of the yarn - a dark navy blue.

Here it is inside. Yarn is incredibly frustrating to take pictures of.  This is the body of the cardigan until the bottom of the armholes. I placed it on a piece of waste yarn and after I finish making the sleeves, I'll be adding them to the body and then knitting them all together until the end. I may have to end my yarn diet for this cardigan as I think I will need a skein or two to finish it.

No knitting outside today. The rain is back and it brought its friend hail.
