… I spent it mainly sock knitting! Yes as predicted by many readers, the sock knitting was very addictive and once I started I wanted to get those socks finished! And I guess I did need a bit of a rest… so despite all my quilt-making plans, I spent a lot of time on the sofa, in front of the telly, with the wood burning stove on, knitting my socks – bliss!
As you can see, I managed the heel on the first sock. It all worked with the pattern and it fits me and feels lovely, but there’s something wrong with the heel. It doesn’t quite look like the photos. I must have done something wrong with the knit 1, slip 1, bit. I can’t work out what though! I will have to ask a grown-up. Anyway it’s still a knitted sock, made by me!
And I tidied my sewing room!
This was the state of my fabric storage after a few months of frantic activity and no time to tidy (well that’s my excuse, in reality I am just very messy!).
And here is the result of a day’s sorting and folding. I wonder how long it will stay like this?
I also played around with a new crochet/patchwork mash-up project I have had in mind for a bit. But the results aren’t quite working out the way I imagined at the moment. I will keep trying and you might get to see something of this soon.
So lots of new ‘starts’ but no new ‘finishes’. I think it’s time for a Finish-a-Long!
