Trunk Full Of Quilts – 2015

Online Quilt Trunk Show | Whims And Fancies

 

Hello and Welcome to Trunk Full Of Quilts here at Whims And Fancies!

 

A couple of week ago I got this idea of hosting an online quilt trunk show and you are all invited to join me.  We get to showcase our work on a blog post, link it up here and let others ooohhh and aaahhhh over it.  It’s getting cooler, most of us are probably cuddling under quilts already.  Lets have a great time with the trunk show before we get busy with the holidays!

I believe in collaboration over competition, so there will be no judges.  This event is for pure show and tell fun.  You will be entered in the giveaway just for participating in the event.

Knitting Snapshots

Knitting WIPs | Whims And Fancies

 

Last week did not afford me any opportunity to sit at the sewing table for any length of time required to work on any project.  We live in a much cooler place now and I need to make a few more quilts.  I am working on them, just not at the moment.  I need to keep my hands busy, and knitting needles are perfect for filling in those small waiting moments.  With cooler weather approaching, I have been seeing a lot of knitting projects around, which has been motivating me to knit.  So I decided to indulge my craving by working on three knitting projects simultaneously.

 

Whisky Barrel Pullover | Whims And Fancies

Gamekeeper Pullover

This is a pullover I am making for my husband.  The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn but I am making it with dk.  I had to do A LOT of swatching.  After some trial and error, I got the sizing right.  I am almost at the point where I separate out the sleeves.

 

Live Long And Prosper Mitts | Whims And Fancies

Slipstream Mitts

Knitting round and round is kind of boring, specially on a large size pullover.  Enter mitts.  This is the Live Long And Prosper yarn from Lorna’s Laces.  This yarn is quite busy and it took me a long time to find a pattern that would actually show it well.  Unlike the pullover, this one needs all my attention.  So watching TV while knitting this pair is not an option for me.

 

Harvest Mitts | Whims And Fancies

Harvest Date Mitts

Since I have one mind-numbingly boring project and the other one is an attention-seeker, I needed a third one that would be somewhere in between.  I made this pair of mitts before in an orange yarn.  It’s a really fun and quick pattern and I love this yellow yarn.

 

Yarns | Whims And Fancies

 

My husband went out to get a hair cut last Saturday and stopped by the yarn store.  This is what he brought back home!  Lucky me!  More handmade knits!

 

Charlie Cat | Whims And Fancies

 

In midst of all the crazyness, I got a new camera.  I am very fond of Canon cameras.  This is another Canon, so I found all the settings very quickly.  Now it’s time to play and test out different settings.  Charlie, of course, gets to be my model!  Here he is waiting for us to finish breakfast so he can have a few drops of milk.  Staring down does work by the way!

Trunk Full Of Quilts – An Online Quilt Trunk Show

Read The Introductory Post

I am also all set for the online trunk show next week.  Since posting about it last week, I have heard back from Fat Quarter Shop and they are also sponsoring the event, so that means more prizes to give away!  If you haven’t heard about the Trunk Full Of Quilts event, it’s an online quilt trunk show hosted here at Whims And Fancies starting next week.  Hope you will join me!

Until then,
-Soma
