June Wedding

It’s hard for me to really believe it, but my baby girl got married last week. She was such a beautiful bride and I really wish her and Geoff all the happiness in the world. The wedding was wonderful. She arranged for parents, siblings and grandparents to spend the week together camping/cabining at a resort in Northern Minnesota. Everyone got along and it couldn’t have gone any better.
Of course there was a wedding quilt. This is the Shakespeare in the Park pattern by Judy Martin. The pattern was not terribly difficult, but there were A LOT of flying geese! It took quite a long time for me to get all the blocks done and then assembling the rows was a challenge. It is set on a point and I didn’t really have a space large enough for the entire quilt, so I had to be super careful to keep things in the correct order. Of course I did goof a few times, but thank goodness I caught it all in time.

We had a very long car ride from Connecticut to Minnesota, so I got a lot of knitting time in. I finished my Night Circus socks. The pattern is actually Hermione’s Everyday socks, but the colors of the yarn reminded me of a book I was reading when I bought the yarn. The book was Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and in it there is a circus where everything is black and white and some fans of the circus always wear red. I know the yarn is black, red and gray, not white, but as soon as I saw it that is where my mind went. The book was a great read, I highly recommend it.
I finally started the sockhead hat. This pattern has been in my queue for a long time!
I started another pair of socks, I simply cannot not have socks on the needles!
I worked on my sweater. I really thought I would get a lot done on the sweater in the car and I might have if I had remembered the yarn! I only brought the yarn that was currently being worked, when that skein ran out I did not have another with me – darn it.
On the quilting front, I want to finish up some of my Christmas WIPS in time for Christmas this year. I have a really cute quilt I made from charm squares that just needs to be quilted, it would look great on the table. I sew in the basement and it gets a little stuffy feeling down there when it is warm and humid, but hopefully I can get motivated to get some more projects finished up.
