I also knit
I finished this sweater a while ago-started it December 2005, so not too bad. My sweetie's sister is a fantastic knitter-and did this sweater in a week for M- I was inspired and joined in the fun. I learned to knit very basic stuff back as a child from my grandma and my mom. They preferred crocheting-my grandma could do those huge lacy pineapple patterns, I have the bedspread she made for my mom's marraige to my dad. Anyway, it's been long days at work this week and no quilting done. I cleared the non-quilty stuff off the sewing table and found enough binding scraps to put together for the last donated top I quilted. Tomorrow is my charity group meeting day-I have to get it together by then! Lots of plans for the weekend-not all of them quilty. It's a glorious fall day-bright and cool-ish outside. Still plenty to do out in the garden now that the worker bees are all done. I am planning a dump run today of the leftover fencing etc stacked at the side of the house. Parking in the garage feels good!
I sure am looking forward to wearing this sweater as soon as it gets cold enough!
