Unicorns and Knights.

I finally finished off the unicorn scarves for the girls and one knight’s helmet for Jake. As well, I can now post the Minion’s quilt with swag that I made for Jonathan’s birthday. In total I made four unicorn/pony scarves but forgot to take a photo of Alexis scarf but it’s much the same just a different colour mane. The knight’s helmet was totally cool to knit as I haven’t really knit a structured piece like that before. It came out a little small but that wasn’t unexpected as most of the Ravelry notes on the pattern said the helmet fit small. I didn’t have Jake’s head measurements so I’m glad that he could get it on his head.

Kenny’s rainbow pony scarf or as Charlie would have it baby unicorn scarf because baby unicorns don’t have horns.

Minions quilt – the second I’ve made. I did more quilting on this one. Same reaction as the first time I finished this quilt, a feeling of happiness just looking at it, maybe it’s all that orange.


Assorted loot that I picked up over the previous year while waiting to finish this quilt. None of the goodies was over $10 and the big stuffie I got for $10 marked down from last Valentines Day.

That’s it for knitting for now. Spring is coming up and so I’ve decided to try and finish some quilts that have been put on hold for a while. I have one quilt top that is finished and is waiting for me to clean off the dining room table so I can pin the layers together and then quilt it. I have another Civil war era quilt that is a block of the month in miniatures and I did start to blog about it quite a while back, that needs to be finished off as well especially since it’s going to be a king-sized quilt and I don’t have a king-size quilt for my bed.

Take care and Hoppy Easter.
