I love knitting but am rather laborious about it: I have to concentrate all the time. I envy people who can chat, watch TV or even knit with their eyes shut - I can't open my mouth or look up as I carefully execute each stitch - sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe! But once I get into the zone I could easily knit all day. When I went to the Shropshire flower show I bought a beautiful blanket which I wrapped up in while we watched the firework display.
The seeds were sewn - I am determined to knit a blanket - and I'm going to knit it the modular way. It will be in stripes of all the colours of Autumn and I plan on it being single bed size. I have a way to go.....
Taking the picture above I thought I should take a picture of a quilt I bought off Vera
Ros also joined us in the morning to baste her beautiful Kaffe Fasett quilt
Earlier in the week I received an email from Julie, who was on our last Beginner's quilt. She said:
I finished it!!! You wouldn't believe how thrilled I am to have made it to the end. It doesn't bear too close a scrutiny but "it is my first quilt" and I'm rather proud! Thank you both so much for all your help and encouragement; I have loved every bit of it - alright, maybe the hand quilting went on a bit, but apart from that!
And here are her pictures:

Before I go and get on with my knitting, this is what I saw out of the window on Tuesday
It was actually a double rainbow but by the time I got my camera it was fading. It was still beautiful though and I looked to see where the end was
Perhaps instead of knitting I should go down to the barn and start digging!
