Cluck, Cluck, It’s Quilted
The quilting is complete on my Funky Chickens. I had a blast revisiting each one of them as I worked my way down the quilt.
These are the top six. If you click on the picture you can see the quilting better, even the bobbles of which there are many.
The bottom is a little folded because I didn’t have anyone to hold it and I just had to get pictures right after it came off the frame.
I had planned to sew the binding today but time got a way from me so it is on the top of my list for tomorrow.
I have almost finished my first tube sock and have about 10 rows done on the second. So I decided it was time to start my next sock.
This is the pattern I am going to try/make. It will be my first try at doing a heel, something I do not know anything about. So after casting on the stitches and knitting the first row, I sat down and read and reread the heel directions.
The yarn has sparkles in it: I see these being my Christmas socks. Think I can have them done by then?
School for DH has started again and then he will be off judging two Jr. Miss programs over the weekend. This does sound like a good time to uncover the cutting table, again, and get some of those BOMs completed for August before the end of the month shows up. And, of course, to make headway on my socks. The fun never ends around here!
