Trimmings

Fun things have been going on lately.  I've done a little spinning and a lot of sewing.  I will post a few more pics in the next couple days of the Material Girl Quilts QAL.  Yesterday was a lot of prep work!

Boating season is about to start, crafting may start to slow because of it....hope not!

Let's hope I can take some better pictures to really show off the beautiful quilting. Best money I ever spent! In LOVE!

It's been quite a while, but....

...but there has been some knitting, and some quilting, and definitely lots of boating.
There has been knitting, but mostly for utility and friends.
There has been quilting, not as much as I'd like, but still plenty:








 There's been some crafting too:


AND...there has been lots and lots of boating...

Lovin' the Lucky Socks

I absolutely love knitting socks.  Sometimes I forget how much I love knitting them.  Before last month, I hadn't knit a sock in over two years.  I picked up one or two that I've had on the needles for a while, but just didn't feel the love.

Part of me feels like it's the yarn.  And let me tell you--I absolutely love this yarn.  Unfortunately it is only available locally (although I'm trying to get her on etsy).  Part of it is the pattern.  I have always written my own patterns.  Sometimes they work out....sometimes they don't.  That's the thing I love about socks.  It's kind of hard to mess them up.  You could hate a pattern; but the socks are still wearable.  If the socks are not wearable for you, they may fit someone else.  And if you don't even like to wear hand knit socks, there is nothing more satisfying than finishing beautiful socks.

These aren't finished yet...but they will be soon.  I started them this evening and I don't think I'll be able to put them down until they are on my feet.

Pattern will be available soon!
