Getting Creative in Montreal – Need your help!

This December, I am spending two weeks in Montreal, cat-sitting for a friend.

I swear this is grumpy cat, upside down!

I’m very excited about the cat-sitting part…not having pets at home has been hard, so borrowing someone else’s works for me :)….and I’m also looking forward to two weeks of practicing my French.

But I also want to work on a new project over those two weeks.  A knit or crochet item that would lend itself to dividing up over 14 days would be ideal…I’m thinking some type of blanket or throw that is made up of numerous smaller pieces….

Like the Beekeeper’s Quilt

…but perhaps that’s a tad too ambitious?

Would love some suggestions!  If I can decide on something soon, I can plan out the yarn and have everything ready for my departure mid-December 🙂


So far, in addition to the Beekeeper’s Quilt, I have had these projects suggested….perhaps these would be handy for some of you who may also be looking ahead to a trip.  Many of these would be good to use up leftover stash…

Crochet Pattern: Vintage Daisy Motif

Due to the fact that I have come back and looked at this Daisy blanket over and over again, I have decided to reblog the entry and share it with my readers.
There is some thing so beautiful and simple about this pattern! Definitely on my list of To Do One Day!
