I have a few things on the sewing table, but for the moment I'm just going to share this one:
It's a beginner's quilt - super simple. I waffled on the fabric choice because chevrons are beyond trendy right now - until I remembered that it's just as silly to avoid something because it's trendy as it is to do it only because it is. Hopefully this little quilt will last long after the world has forgotten that Pinterest told us all that we Must. Love. Chevrons.
I'm making the quilt for a class that I'm auditing in order to prepare to teach it later in the year. Super excited about that! I'm thinking this wee quilt will be the first item I stow away for our future children. I hestiated to write that - it seems like nowadays people think that's either A) bad luck B) crazy or C) too risky in case anything goes sideways in the family planning department. But critics be damned, I'm starting a for-future-baby-box. (Which can always become a ready-made-gifts-box if need be.)
The textured shawl is coming along just fine as well:
I am absolutely IN LOVE with this yarn (Aslan Trends King Baby Llama and Mulberry Silk). In fact, I'm in love with this yarn company. I have a few skeins of their Royal Alpaca waiting in the wings and I cannot WAIT to make something with it.
But for now, I'm just enjoying this knit.
