I’m waiting for an electrician to show up. While I wait for the doorbell, I decided to block a couple of things.
First off is my Camp Loopy project from The Loopy Ewe. Who doesn’t love cashmere??? I will have to admit it was boring to knit and took forever to block. It will be a nice accessory though.
If you look carefully at the top of the photo, you’ll see a laundry basket. That’s the basket I mentioned in the last post. I threw 13 projects in it. I’ve worked on all of them in the last month. I picked one of the projects on Sunday and took a break from quilting and sat around and knit and watched NASCAR. It was heavenly. What made it even better was that I was sitting outside in the shade with a nice breeze. It was so gorgeous, with all the alfalfa blooming.
The project I was knitting was my mystery shawl from Romi. It was supposed to be finished the end of March but I knew I was going to run out of yarn for the border. I’d used a skein of Socks That Rock that was a Rare Gem, which meant I couldn’t get more. I ordered a couple of different skeins and chose one that was similar and alternated the skeins. I don’t think it shows much at all. Anyway, I finished it yesterday morning; again while I waited for the electrician.
I’m really excited to see this one once it’s dry. I like it a lot!
Since the electrician still isn’t here, I think it’s time for a little power nap. And then I have to get back to the quilting machine. I added a Michael Buble’ album and a Chris Tomlin album to my listening repertoire. I put my headphones on and quilt away.
Since the frequency of my blogging has been severely lacking lately, I’d like to wish all of my American readers a happy July 4th! May your holiday include time to celebrate our country and time to knit or quilt!!!
God Bless America!
