Twist and Shout
I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like knitting something in the round takes forever. Its nice to know that I'm not alone with that particular brand of crazy.
I also got a little non-knitting fibery thing done yesterday. A long time ago, before I did very much knitting, I quilted. I actually worked at a quilt store - Quilt 'N Stitch. My quilting fabric stash is actually bigger than my knitting and spinning stash. I haven't done much quilting since Caleb was born because knitting is more portable and its easier to keep up with him that way. I do have some quilts that are WIP's, but they aren't ready to be quilted yet, and I'm going to be trying to get somewhere with them over the next few months. This top is one of them. I made this quilt top ages ago, but hadn't put borders on it. I had the border fabric. I also had backing fabric, and binding - I just had to put it all together. Last night I got my act together and finished getting it ready to quilt. I'm going to send it off to Quilt 'N Stitch and have them quilt it for me, so I can bind it and get it on Caleb's bed later this fall. Just in case you're curious, the block pattern is Goose in the Pond and I've done it with scraps of blues, greens and browns, on various white and cream backgrounds.
