Hard to believe that I have now knit two pair of socks. These are the ones that came from my sock class and before I could finish the second one I had to go back and ask for a review of the toe decreases.
I had a fun email from DS#3 today. We are going to be visiting him, DIL#3, and DGD#2 next week and they live north of us where the temps have been about 10-15 degrees colder than here. As an inducement to stay a little longer he told me that they have wool socks I can wear. Do you think he has been reading my blog lately? Me neither.
I did get all the fabric cut for the last of the blocks for Deck-Ade The Halls from The Fat Quarter Shop. All of the very little pieces are labeled and ready to go but I haven’t gotten any of it sewn together. I’m not in much of a hurry because I am planning to set them somewhat differently from the original and do not yet have everything I want to use.
When we get back from our short vacation I do have two new quilts I plan to start and, of course, the Weave quilt is still waiting on the HQ. I think that now that I have 2 pair of socks under my belt, it will be easier to share my knitting and quilting time. Now I just have to re-find some reading time.
I have mentioned the chickens who populate our yard almost every day (they live next door, I think). As we were leaving for lunch yesterday we were greeted by this one. She didn’t seem afraid of us but that could be because I do occasionally feed them with bread crusts and/or fruit. I wonder if they will ever be tame enough to touch.
And lastly, we were one of those areas that had rain on Saturday. This was what I saw on WeatherBug when I got up.
I dressed quickly and got the dogs ready to go out. Opened the door to this. Needless to say we all waited until that first bit passed, ran outside for what was needed to be done, and quickly got back in. It was suggested that it looked like a good knitting day and that is how I got my green socks done. We had a great weekend.
I will be linking up with Patchwork Times: please go there and see all the quilting creativity going on.
