Year of Projects: One Down

I finally got one UFO off the needles! I finished Allegoro on Sat and I'm fairly happy with the fit. The neck rolls a bit and the yarn was verrry splitty so I hope the ends stay woven end. . . I started this project in May 2010 so it feels good to have it done!

I decided Vodka Gimlet had been on hiatus long enough, so I picked up the stitches for the collar. I have ~3 inches of 2 x 2 ribbing so I'm trying to do a row or two a day. This is my second and hopefully last attempt at the collar. . .

I also worked some on my Housewarming Quilt:

Here is the center block:

The tulip block is cut out:


  1. Oh wow! Allegoro turned out beautifully! Kudos to you for working on the Gimlet twice to get it how you want it...and 3 I love your blocks, great fabric choices all! I hope you have a great week, and can't wait to see how your Gimlet and quilt projects turn out, as lovely as the first, I am sure!

  2. Allegoro is gorgeous, I love your colour choices and it looks perfect on you. And the vodka gimlet is looking great too!
