Swoon in Heirloom - The Beginnings

It's been a wonderful, busy summer with the boys so I can't really complain.  I just wish there were either more hours in the day, or that I slept less.  I might try working on the second one.  Hopefully with one boy back to school, and the other soon to be (next week), I will have more time for sewing and updating this blog. 

In the meantime, I have been doing a little sewing.  I don't think I need to say much.  "Swoon" is everywhere, and I couldn't resist.  I was waiting for Ruby to come to my LQS, but Heirloom (purchased here) was calling to me.  For me, it's lived up to all the hype.  The blocks are HUGE.  Each block gets a little bit easier, a little more precise.  I love it.

I've also been doing a little knitting.  I just finished a cardi, which is in the blocking stage right now so I'll post later on this week.  Next up, another quick cardi using this:

The biggest ball of yarn ever.
