WIP Wednesday

This started out as Design Wall Monday...but it is now Wednesday so it is my work in progress.  :)  I spent some time in the car again this weekend and more time waiting which allowed me to do some basting again.

I now have 375 dime-sized hexies basted and I've run out of the paper hexagons so I have to order them.  I'm not quite sure which pattern I'm going to use which will make me wait until I have the papers here to start working on them.  They are so bright and cheery to work with, especially with the dreary weather we have been having.

I also got the knitting needles out and started on a new summery scarf.  I'm using a linen yarn called Sparrow from Quince & Co. and I love it.  It is kind of like knitting with DMC thread, which makes me slow down, but the further I get into it, the more I want to knit.  It is a free pattern that can be found here.  It seems I never have a shortage of things to work on, but they all seem to keep me out of trouble.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

Good Morning Kristen, I'm not sure how small a dime is, but it certainly looks tiny....what an amazing project.
I love the lacy knit scarf and thank you for letting us know about the free download. I am going to pop over to the site and download the pattern as soon as I have finished writing to you.
Have a lovely day. I hope you do not have to wait too long for the papers to arrive.
Best Wishes

Your itty bitty hexies are so cute! I just finished assembling a top (small sized) with diamonds that size and it turned out great. Can't wait to see what you put together with all those, 375 is a bunch!
