What's in my hoop.

Years ago I found a very nice quilt in an antique shop in Austin TX. 
Lucky enough I took pictures of it because I couldn't get this beauty out of my mind.  I even found the perfect fabric for the sashings and for some blocks on the same trip. 
 Finally I'm ready to quilt it and I hope to finish it soon. 

The original quilt I love so much.

I love it when you cast on for a sock and you get to the point where you can actually start knitting.


Needles: 2,5 mm, carbon, knit pro
Yarn: Drops/fabel

(I took this picture in 'Oudekerk aan de Amstel' this summer on a boat trip)
