SEWING ROOM RE-DO and Moebius progress

The sewing room re-do is finally under way! Yippee. The trundle twin bed set has been donated to someone who needs two beds. Removing those beds opened up a ton of room in here! Love it. Shelves to go up soon, but it's a start.

The "board" leaning up against the back of my sewing machine cabinet needs mounting on its hinges. I'm saving that task for one of the guys in the family. *g*. It will be wonderful to use this flip up space when I am FMQ a large quilt.

Moebius cowl in process - knitting
Some progress has been made on the Moebius scarf/cowl. It is about 1/2 complete. Can you see the needles in the pic above? These are from KnitPicks and come with different length cables. I really like how they feel in my hands and especially the fine tips -- so helpful when working with fingering weight yarn. Oh the yarn in from KP also: 100% Merino wool. So so soft!  The really fun part that I am looking forward to is the I-Cord bind-off. I love the way it looks and it is fun to do.

That's all for today. Sew, until next time. . . I am off to the Road2California Quilt Show to learn more about EQ7 and PPing. What are YOU up to?

Quilty Hugs,

Great going in your sewing room! Do be careful you don't do yourself a mischief though ;)
Love your moebius it is growing really fast!! Your needles are super!!! I'm starting to realize that if I plan to knit I now need to buy some new better needles. LOL.. crucial when trying to learn the continental :)) Love and hugs Elly, ps hope you're having a super time in R2C.

You'll love having that extra table space behind the machine. I leave mine up all the time. It does become a little cluttered, but all I have to do is clean it off when quilting a quilt.

Your knitting looks super too.

Have fun and the Road and take lots of pics.
