Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

My Blog Readers Are The Best!


You know the contest I told you about on Friday?  I won!  Well, I got second, but it was enough to win a layer cake from Fat Quarter Shop!  I know I won because of all my great blog readers, because I completely forgot to tell My Hero and the kids about it.  So they didn’t vote!

I’m getting this layer cake!

It’s Luna Notte by Three Sisters for Moda.  I’m a frequent buyer at Fat Quarter Shop.  They have all the newest Moda fabrics and they ship really quickly!  You can also check the “coming soon” section to get a sneak peek of all the latest and greatest fabric lines coming out from all the major fabric companies!!!

In other news, I’m still knitting Cloud Chaser.  I made a rookie mistake this weekend!

I twisted a cable “backsway”.  (That’s a Ms In Charge toddler word!)  I ripped it down about 10 rows and it was easily fixed.  It’s a good thing I messed up the easy cable instead of the harder one!  Duh!

I’m working my way around the collar.  I’ve finished the left side and the back and now I’m working across the right side.  Then I just need to do the ribbing on the armholes.

This week is pretty quiet.  Dreamboy is doing the driving part of his drivers training.  Frankie went on vacation with a friend’s family.  Ms In Charge is lobbying to go buy makeup.  That’s a 6th grade thing.  And Superblonde is just hanging out.  I think she needs to cook for us this week!  Maybe I should tackle a couple of projects that have been waiting forever.  Or…I could knit or work on a quilt.

I may just take a 20 minute power nap and then decide what to do!

  1. Hooray! Congratulations!

  2. Way to go Maria! There were some really nice designs on that site also, and I saw you had some stiff competition. What a nice feeling to win something really nice doing what you love.

    Great fix-it job also. It looks very intimidating going back that far – glad you got it to work out.

  3. The color of that is absolutely gorgeous!

  4. Firts, congratulations, you won! 😀
    Second… what lovely work you have in your needles!!!

    • Congrats on the win! You deserved it, your quilt was fantastic. It was a pleasure to support you by voting.

      Knit or quilt? Why not both? After a nap of course! Enjoy your week.

  5. Congratulations on your win! and I’m loving your Cloud Chaser….

  6. Congratulations! That makes me happy I voted. Yours was the best quilt!

  7. Congratulations! Lovely prize! Since knitting took over, the fabric stash doesn’t get added to as much. I love that shop though! Phew, glad you could fix the cable, you know it wasn’t down further!

  8. I got Luna Notte at a wonderful price on Ebay- the fat 8th pack. I have my pattern and background picked out. Are you ready? When’s the next retreat? We can do luna notte. Let the quilting begin!!!

  9. congrats on your win!!!! Your quilts are always so beautiful – no surprise there! The concept of a Power Nap intrigues me … I’m not sure that I know how to sleep in the middle of the day. I AM sure that it is a good thing to try to learn!
