Here’s my morning:
*Got up just in time to say good-bye to my kids. (Yes, they get themselves up and ready for school.)
*Brought my mom to the airport.
*Took a kid to her doctor appointment and got her to school.
*Brought a bunch of kids clothes to the local thrift store.
*Picked up a blended mocha. Yum!
*Started a sewing project. You’ll see in a minute.
*Had a hot flash. (You wanted to know that, didn’t you?)
*Found a fan.
*Made an oilcloth bag.
All of this by noon!!! And I’m not a morning person.
This will be a wonderful bag for outdoor knitting. It will just wipe off and it’s waterproof. Think pool or oceanside knitting!!! It would also haul a ton of groceries, if I ever remember to take it along when I grocery shop.
My mom, her sister and I visited the Eagle Creek Quilt Shop last week. Let’s just say I almost melted by credit card. I have oilcloth to make two more bags. One of them is a bit more fancy! I also bought a quilt kit that will show up on the blog eventually.
I needed to do a flower shot too. I have the sneaking suspicion that fall is creeping up on us rather quickly!
I’ve been knitting a ton! Mom and I spent a lot of time on the couch in the family room, yacking and knitting. Mom is working on the Mondo Cable Cardi. She’s using a rusty orange Malabrigo. It’s amazingly soft. Did I remember to take a photo? Nope!
As you saw in the last post, I’m working on the Rendezvous Jacket. I don’t remember the last time I worked on a sweater that I’ve enjoyed more. I love the pattern and the yarn is amazing.
The yarn is Twisted by Blue Moon Fiber Arts. I think I have a new favorite yarn. I need to order more!!! I actually considered knitting only with BMFA until Christmas. They have so many amazing yarns, even without considering Socks That Rock. It would be kind of fun. Anyone want to participate in a BMFA Kal???
Here’s a closer shot.
And…I have the fronts almost finished as well.
Hmmm. Maybe I’ll skip the nap and finish the fronts of the sweater. This sweater has 3/4 sleeves, and I’m still debating that. I need to make a decision soon!
I should make a list of all the sorting and organizing I need to do in the next couple of weeks, but I think that would make me cry. Knitting is so much more gratifying!
I think I’ll take a 20 minute power nap and then get busy!
