I can never decide. Our quilt group renamed ourselves The QuiKnitters, after part of our group defected to knitting. I love both, and don’t ask me to choose between them.
Anyway, the QuiKnitters got together on Friday, and I got a little further on my very fun quilt.
Hopefully, I’ll get the scrappy borders put on it tonight. Or not! We’ll see. There’s a new book called Material Obsession. Kathy and Sarah own a quilt shop in Sydney, Australia. I love their stuff. If you’ve ever quilted in your life, go buy that book. It’s amazing!!! If you haven’t quilted, buy the book anyway. It will make you want to start!
I spent a ton of time knitting this weekend. The cold I never quite shook decided to return. It wasn’t bad enough that I though I was going to die. It was just bad enough that all I felt like doing was sitting on my rear knitting! Darn!
The first half of Cluaranach is finished and on a spare needle.
I’ve cast on for the second half and I’m almost through one of the three repeats of the first chart.
I’m really enjoying this project, but it may have been derailed by not one, but two major projects. Yes, that’s right folks. I started two moron projects this weekend. I’m keeping one under wraps for the moment, but I can show you the yarn for the other one.
Do you see a problem with a stranded project that uses 7 skeins of sock yarn on size 1 needles? What is wrong with me???
What’s up this week?
~I’m having my gray hair covered. How can that take so long? And only last 5 weeks?
~Super Blonde is starting Drivers Ed. Please pray for extra guardian angels for her! I told her it’s impossible to drive and spaz at the same time.
~I’m making pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes with chipotle cream sauce for dinner.
~I aso got a yummy recipe at QuiKnitting for a Sausage Tortellini soup. I’m going to make that some night.
~I have get to make 4 poodle skirts for an upcoming pops concert at Super Blonde’s school.
~I’m going to try a recipe for granola bars for Frankie to take to school. There’s a little boy in his class with a peanut allergy. Most granola bars have peanut flour in them.
~And of course there’s the usual home schooling, laundry, and demolition control that is the highlight of my week!!!
I’ll be back soon with more moron projects!
