Heather at A Passionate Quilter had a contest on her blog. I wasn't the winner but was the runner up and the winner never contacted her. Look at this lovely Chocolate Lollipop fabric by Anna Maria that she sent me! Stop by and give her a hello.Here is my next block on for the $5 Quilt. For the first time, I was sewing at midnight the night before our meeting. Bad move. The block isn't sized as nicely as it should be. I'm going to live with it though. In the words of Tim Gunn "make it work" is what I'm going to do!
When I was packing at the last minute for my trip to Dallas I decided to pack an old friend. My Per Terras big knitting project. I actually knit 12 or 14 rows on it while I was gone and a few since I've gotten back.
I think I started this project a year ago. When I started it, I thought I'd never get the hang of it. I knit and frogged, knit and frogged, frogged some more. Then it got better but it wasn't intuitive. When I picked this back up after having it sit for over 6 months I realized how much I've grown with my pattern reading and reading my knitting. It's SO much easier. Dare I say it is EASY now? This project is going to be special in that it's going to tell the story of my growth as a knitter. Don't you just love those kinds of projects?
