Last week I started knitting a pair of toe-up socks with Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel. I didn't make these zebra socks shown on the pattern book, but definitely something that is calling me (I just Pinned it - the obsession continues).
|Aren't these AWESOME?|
I just picked up some gorgeous, cheap, sport weight wool yesterday and #2 circulars for my next big project, the Double Heelix socks:
This pattern has daunted me for years and the other day I looked it up and, to my surprise, it made some sense. My heelix socks will be periwinkle/yellow and black/lime green. I think I'm gonna make a pair for Penelope, too. I hope the nature spun sport yarn works well and knits up soft for our tootsies.
I have been obsessing about quilts and haven't done much sewing other than some bee blocks in the last month. I really want to make:
- A log cabin quilt
- a flying geese quilt
- a snail's trail quilt
- a storm at sea quilt
- a drunkard's path quilt
- a monkey wrench quilt
- a quilt with a leaf motif
- a plus quilt
- a union jack quilt
- and the list goes on...
So many quilts, so little time.
I have also just taken on a ton of new work at my job. One of the event coordinators has left and I've inherited all of her conferences. October - November weekends will be completely insane. I will probably get some knitting accomplished but I can't take my sewing machine with me (too bad). I suppose this will be the year of knitted gifts.
Make something today!
