Which Bonnie Hunter pattern I'm sewing now??

Virginia Bound

My first Bonnie Hunter top ( from 4 !!! )
Is finished finally.
I just changed the setting of the blocks.
My way to be with my friend Carrie from Delaware, where Bonnie just teached during the last days.

Off to work on the next: My Blue Heaven.

Yippi - first posting from my smartphone

Yes, the last post was the first I sent from my phone. Worked like a charm

Knitting, crochet and results

Due to a quilter, who influenced me again with the yarn obsession I finished 2 projects.
The red one is named " frangiflutti " and was easy peasy

The blue/green/turquoise scarf was a self initiated nightmare. I did the single ( squarish ) flower in crochet with real joy. Than I decided that it needs a very wavy border. So I added 3 cables from the knitpros to my square thingies and started very enthusiastic with the number ~ 360. In the second row I doubled that ( ~ 720 ) ok here the fun part ended ....
2 rows later I doubled again ....
Can you imagine 1440 in ONE SINGLE ROW ?????
Ok it's done, don't ask how long I knitted to end this last row ...

But. I love the effect -
well worth the hard work

Happy Easter

to the quilting friends near and far


The good news is: my friend Monika and her husband are coming over
the bad: the weather isn't cooperating,
typically April weather, cold and wet

but I'll enjoy the Holiday anyway

Best wishes my friends
