There's Life Outside of Knitting...
As if Stitches wasn't enough, I had the pleasure of attending my first ever Quilt Show with some muggle friends last Sunday.
Professional auctioneers Pete and "Sleepy" work the crowd to bid higher.
My friend's Mom in front of one of her quilts. She specializes in Asian inspired quilts and has fabrics in her stash from a name well known by knitters, Kaffe Fasset!
I even bid on and won a quilt pieced with vintage fabrics and a some modern. It was so much fun bidding and watching others bid! (I couldn't get a good lighting for a photo the colors IRL are much prettier )
Here's a very lucky kitty named Skippy who found a home at my friend's Mom's cozy house!
On the knitting side, I don't have much to show for WIP Wednesday but I did cast on a shawl using one of my Stitches acquisitions from Brooks Farm:
The colorway is darker blue than it looks in the first photo and looks more like dark denim.
I'm making the Magic Shawl that was hanging in the Brooks Farm booth, in the medium size. The pattern calls for 2 skeins of Acero, superwash wool 60%, silk 20%, viscose 20%.
