I have been happily and steadily working away on my beloved The Greekness quilt – a quilt made up of all 24 Greek letters. They are growing faster than I expected, which is a wonderful feeling. Since the quilt patterns for these Greek letters were already written a couple of years ago, all I am having to do now is just sew the blocks. I have been finishing two blocks together in one sitting. Working with only two colours helps a lot too. Less colour switching equals less mistakes.
Gamma, Delta, Eplison
Zeta, Eta, Theta
Only Zeta was a little harder than the rest in this bunch of six letters. The rest was quite easy. All the Greek Letter quilt patterns are individually available on my Craftsy shop. I also have the set available on Craftsy and Etsy.
Now that I have finished this set of six Greek letters, I started knitting a new sweater for my husband with this gorgeous bronze and brown variegated yarn on the left. I learned short row for this one, another skill in my toolbox. With all these shades of brown, a splash of colour was needed for balance. I didn’t knit at the time when Lorna’s Laces originally came out with the Live Long And Prosper yarn for the first time. They recently remade a limited batch of this yarn with the sad passing away of Mr. Leonard Nimoy. I received my pre-ordered yarn this week and can’t wait to start making a pair of mitts with this one.
