I am at the Georgia Mountain Fair again today. I am missing the Green Bean Festival in town but it is no doubt too hot to walk around and look at other people's crafts.
Still knitting away and doing some quilting, too. At the Fair Wednesday, I worked on my Grandmother's Flower Garden miniature quilt. My hexagons are 3/4 of an inch and I will probably have 12 or so flowers. It is an entirely hand worked project and extremely portable. I worked on it last time we went to Florida and back. It travels well and is easy to do unless we are on the mountain roads. Then I can rely on "dummy" knitting--you know, round and round on size 8s.

That picture is a snippet of the Arachno Shawl by Jennifer Dassau. See a better photo of it at THIS BLOGGER'S SITE. I bought the pattern electronically and I have used some yarn that has tried several times to be socks but just does not want to cooperate. It should have been very nice socks. It is two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in a color that makes me think of summer ice cream on my grandmother's porch. 


Here is another blogger who made the Arachno Shawl. If you explore what she has on her site, you will see she may have a little bit of a shawl obsession...just sayin'...

3/4" hexies? Wow. I made a regular sized quilt in flower garden but nowhere near that tiny of hexies. Please do post a photo.
