Southern California Quilter's Run

I'm in San Diego for a few weeks for work. Imagine my surprise when I discover there's a shop hop scheduled the same time. So my weekend was spent shop hopping or quilter's running as they call it.

I hopped the Area 4 Shops. I visited 4 on Saturday and 5 on Sunday. 

Day 1

Day 2

Passport turned in at last shop. It would be nice to win one of the prizes.

Here is my loot. I already mailed it back home. We'll see if it arrives before I do.

Camp Loop 2013: Project One

Camp Loopy has begun for this year. The requirement for Project one was to knit or crochet a project of at least 375 yards with a lace or fingering weight yarn that you had not used before. 

I loved the pattern but wasn't all that crazy about the yarn. I found it a bit splitty to knit with and it pilled a bit. However I liked the finished project.

Pattern: Summer Wind
Yarn: Breathless by Shalimar Yarns
Needles: Size 4 US
