550+ yards later on Day Two…it measures to 12″ by 53″
Today, while struggled a bit with itchy eyes/throat, running nose, and uncontrollable sneezing, I effectively resisted the temptation to visit this month’s gallery exhibit and reception at Quiltworks–featuring Kapitoil Novel Quilts, one of the most exciting quilt exhibits ever! Nineteen amazing avid quilters have embraced the Deschutes County Library’s 2011 Novel Idea with each making a quilt based on their interpretation of author Teddy Wayne’s first novel Kapitiol, a relatively quick read. Here you may see my dear friend Kristin’s stunning slow-cloth, hand quilt.
For rest of first Friday, I stayed in…watched The Mentalist with the family and getting over a shock from some blind knitting earlier in the day
The piece didn’t look right but my needles kept on trucking away. Tonight, I finally realize I HAVE RE-DESIGNED THE LACE!!!! See them?
Nay? I know…unless you are me! Within minutes, I dropped 34 stitches, 50 rows back of left/right lace panels
A picture speaks a thousand words
Ripping back is not an option…nearly 300 stitches on each row…NO WAY. NO HOW! I fear not the ripping back. There are just more enticing things I’d rather do…like knitting another new project LOL How did you spend your Friday?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
