Ready for Fall Sweater

I'm ready for fall.  Finished blocking this today.  The yarn is Malabrigo Rio. The color is Volcan.  The pattern is by Diane Sousy of Knitting Pure & Simple.  The name of the pattern is Top Down Trapeze Pullover.  Super easy and well written pattern.  Her patterns are the best.  It's a very long tunic with 3/4 sleeves.  The increases are at the sides and the sides are longer than the front and back. It is knit from the top down.  No seaming when you are done.  A really good pattern for beginner sweater knitter.

Neon Christmas

This quilt is going to have to come with sunglasses :)  For the grand-kids.  Stash busting my neons.  Neon green backing.  Top quilting thread in neon variegated.  Bobbin thread is neon green.  Will provide pattern information when I dig it up.  I know it was in a quit magazine and not a book but I can't remember the name.
