I haven't seen any of the Olympics since watching the 4 hour opening ceremonies on Friday night. We all sat down together but my husband wandered off halfway through the parade of nations. I worked on my sock but only got the cuff done and ended up on the computer shopping the 35% off sale at Fabric Depot. I got myself some Kona solids to make a quilt that I fell in love with from the latest American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. My kids stuck it out the entire time until just before the torch was lit at midnight when they both fell asleep. So sad. Luckily I recorded it on my Tivo so I replayed it for them the next morning.
Saturday I went to Madrona with my friends Lou and Ginny. We walked and shopped the market there. So much gorgeous yarn it was hard to resist. In the end I only bought a sweater pattern. I am so proud of myself! I ended up talking to a woman there who was what I would call a fair isle expert. She gave me great advice on knitting fair isle and I have already used some of her tips when knitting my sock.
My plan today is to work on my DQS#8 quilt. The deadline is fast approaching and I have finally decided what to make for my partner.
