Passing Down Crazy

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

Ok, So I Can’t Just Sit!


I have a little problem with being able to just sit.  If I’m not knitting, my mind wanders.  The Genius is the same way.  She knit through some of high school and a lot in college.

As I said in yesterdays post, I was just going to sit in the sun and knit.  I couldn’t do it.  I started thinking about how I was going to put the trees on that ginormous quilt, and I had to just go do it!  I sat in the sun for maybe 45 minutes.

I got my stuff together and headed back to My Hero’s office.  I started working on the quilt at 1:30 and worked until 9:30.  Fortunately,  My Hero was willing to grab some takeout to feed the kids!

Here’s what I had at 9:30.

It looks a little desolate now, but imagine it covered with lots of leaves!  I think there will be a nest in the tree with birds in it.  It’s hard to see on the picture, but there are four colors of brown in the tree.  I may add more texture to the trunk, but the machine quilting will do a much better job of that as well.

This morning I feel like I got hit by a truck.  Half of that eight hour stint was spent crawling around on the floor and getting pieces in the right places.

Maybe today I’ll just sit…and knit!
