Knitting a shawl isn't new, neither is finishing a shawl. I'm usually pretty good about finishing my knitting starts. Having a little leftover yarn isn't new.
what I did with the leftover yarn IS new - for me.
on this quilt
A couple of years ago, Starlyn (who now lives in Australia and I miss ... a lot), and I made Bargello quilts. Well - I made mine, I don't know if she ever made hers. The colors on the quilt were much like the yarn in the shawl and I really wanted to try couching on my Handiquilter. I had the capability for a couple years. I did not have the courage, until today.
In order to couch on a quilt ... you need a quilt.
I have a quilt.
and it now has a few couched-yarn-flowers.
It took more yarn than I expected. I would have like to make more flowers but - for now ... couching is complete.
