This week my sweater is not as far as I wish it was. Saturday I had the opportunity to go to Des Moines for the AQS Quilt Show. We left at 6 in the morning and didn't get back until 11 at night. Not much knitting time, but the inspiration I got from all of the quilts was worth it. Sunday I curled up with Round Robin by Jennifer Chiaverini. I intended to just read a chapter or two, but it was so good I ended up reading the whole book. I have a quilt I need to get ready for a workshop I'm taking at the end of this month so I'm not making promises as to how much knitting will get done this week either. (This is the real reason that I start knitting for Christmas in September. I have time to get distracted by other projects and still stand a decent chance of having presents finished by the 25th.)


  1. I hope you took pictures of the Quilt Show and are going to share. There is a small show here in November (cancelled by Superstorm Sandy last year) and I can't wait to go. Isn't wonderful to have so many WIPs.

  2. I haven't tried quilts but I love them. Sweaters are such a commitment but I love it when they come off the needles. Love your color!
