To those who know me it's not a big surprice that I'm a big Avengers fan. I love the movies to pieces, Iron Man being my favorite, but I'm also quite fond of Captain America, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo version), Hawkeye, Black Widow and, not to forget, Thor.
I'm not alone with this.
So, when I got that crazy idea into my head to make an Avengers Quilt, I immediately knew where it would go to. And last Wednesday I finally could hand the quilt over.
It is an unique quilt, and I learned quite a bit making it.
I know it's now at its new home where it will be loved and appreciated (and hopefully been ued to snuggle up in to watch an Avengers marathon once in a while ...)

Currently, a couple of larger project are coming to fruitation. After the scrappy sockyarn blanket from last week, here's a table cloth I've made for my mom.
The diameter is roughly 180cm and about 3000m of cotton were used to knit it (Magic No. 8 by Zettl). In the end I had 2345 stitches on the needle, which made for very long rows.
I really enjoy knitting lace, but normally don't have much use for it. Luckily my mom has a nice round bistro table and with a neutral table cloth unterneath, I think it will look great.

After about half a year I finally finished my scrappy ZigZag sockyarn blanket/afghan.It ended up 180 x 150 cm and it extremely warm and heavy.
Primary colors were blue and green, with the occasional other color thrown in.I haven't weighted it yet, but I'd guess 2,5 kilos may have ended in there.
