I dug into my silk scraps this week to work on a little pojagi. This piece is about 12″ square, and I will put on a 2″ border, so it’s not too big. In Korea, this size would be common for putting over dishes as a table. I won’t use it for that, but it will be nice as a little table mat. I love the colours with the grey.
Even though the pojagi project is small, it is not very portable. The technique, small sizes and fine needle and thread don’t lend themselves to carrying. This knitting project is great to work on during ball games, or while waiting to pick up kids. Even though it looks complicated, the pattern is very simple, so I had it memorized by the third row. Using the double pointed needle makes it easy to take along. This will be a summer cardigan. It works up from the bottom, and I’m almost at the place to add in the sleeves, so I will need to refer to the pattern soon.
I finished up this little baby quilt this week. It’s a gift for a special baby born to a couple at my church.
Have a good week!
