Look what Flo is making--the Palette Fair Isle Cardigan from Knit Picks. Is this not a project to die for? All that glorious color... Her tension is perfect and this is shaping up to be a huge success. She is about to dive into the world of steeks and when the time comes may need a good deal of moral support, mood-enhancing drugs, and/or liquor to empower her to actually cut into that gorgeousness.
I was there as a Highly Motivated Sewer. I brought my traveling machine--my Featherweight, a pile of newly minted Mile-a-Minute blocks, a box of cut sashing strips and corner blocks, and set to work.
One minor but annoying setback: I fully intended to make the blocks to finish to 6 inches. But I must have packed the wrong ruler when I went to the Glen--my 6 inch square rather than my 6.5 inch square. So my blocks will finsh to 5.5 inches. That cuts several inches from the size of the little quilt. I may end up needing more blocks. I don't know why I keep doing these idiot things and sabotaging my own work. So annoying and brainless...
But I got all the block strips sewn and half the cornerblock strips. Decent progress.
In other news, the Mumbo Gumbos go on and on and on. At least three more were underway tonight. Will I get sucked into this whirling vortex of group dynamics and shared fabric strips?? Time will tell.
Drove home through patchy ground fog and a million sparkly stars overhead as I got close to home.
