Heather Bailey Pop Garden and Bijoux
I have finished the third week of the Old Red Barn Co. QAL. I have my blocks ready to piece together for a quilt top. I'm a little giddy. I haven't quilted anything, not really, for years. I sewed long before I knit. I had kids, knitting is portable. I'll still knit - but man, it has been fun to stalk for fabric, and to keep up with the QAL. It's been fun to mix it up.
I have finished my first Cotty sock - using Yarntini in a "Last Call" colorway. I love the solid parts of the back of the foot - I am really drawn that stockinette nestled between some pattern. The pattern is quick and wonderful. Sport weight makes me feel like I am cheating, and I still get a sock.
My husband and I went to see The Moth last night at Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee. It was nice to have an evening away from the kidlets, and to be entertained by my favorite podcast entourage. Andy Borowitz was particularly funny. Turner Hall was fabulous - eclectic, rustic, bohemian - love. I can't wait to come up with an excuse to go back. If this troupe comes near you, I recommend it. It's like sitting around with a couple hundred of your closest friends to share a story.
