The Quill Must Go On~ Guest Blogger Andee





I am on the final edge of my Quill.  Are you applauding? I am giving myself a pat on the back. I am further along than the pictures above, but these are the last pictures I took of it. I was lucky to be able to go camping for a week and have lots of knitting time.  I worked on my Chesterfield Sweater until I ran out of yarn and then devoted the rest of the trip to my Quill. I am so close to finishing! Hopefully I can keep my focus and get it done soon.
 
I loved sitting on the beautiful porch swing at our friends cabin in the Adirondacks knitting and enjoying that beautiful view. I also spent many morning over the campfire at our campsite working on it.  We had chilly mornings and it was so warm and cozy as it was draped over me as I knitted. This project has been like a good friend. I'll miss knitting it when it is done, but I will enjoy using it!

  7. Wow... very nice. You chose the perfect colors, and it looks cozy; something you will cherish for years to come. That said -- are those donuts on the table in the cabin.
