And a follow up on “this and that”…

Although I didn’t take a photo  of it – the sock I posted yesterday that I was ready to turn the heel on ….. the heel is turned, the decreases all done, and I’m on what I consider the “straightaway”  the main part of the foot which just plain old knitting  until I get to the toe decreases.  I love it when I get to that point, you know you in the home stretch.

I should easily get this pair finished before the end of the month but tonight (well actually tomorrow at 12:01 a.m.) is the official start of Camp Loopy and we can start on our first project.  You KNOW I will be up knitting at that time and probably straight on through the late late late movie and into the morning news! 🙂  I usually stay up till midnight on week nights but on the weekends – and especially since I’m on vacation – I stay up much later. I’m really anxious to see how the yarn I got works for the wedges in the Spectra scarf.

The Pinwheel Posey quilt I posted a photo of yesterday …. that two has made great progress.  The quilting is finished, the binding is attached and I’ve got it probably half hand stitched down this afternoon.  So I’ll get that finished off tonight I think.  Here it is with the binding pinned on and just kind of stuck to the design wall — the weight of it meant I had to snap a quick photo before it decided to fall off the wall.

  Tomorrow I’ll decide what will get layered to quilt next.  Plenty to choose from.

  1. I’m using DIC Smooshy in Cocoa Kiss, and Blue Lagoon. Not much change in the
    blue wedge, I like yours much better. But, that’s ok, mine is coming out quite nice.

  2. You are truly a Wonder Woman! So busy, so many projects getting checked off your list. My plan for this weekend is to finish several tops (just last borders to put on), post my material choices for the next weekend’s Mystery Quilt for advice and cut them out. That should keep me busy today and Monday, but not half as busy and productive as you.

    • Oh Kate, what mystery quilt is that? I am a mq junkie.

      I too, am knitting Spectra for CL. This is my first time, just cast on, and am on row 2.

      • Donna – I have another Spectra in the works that I started on earlier but this one for Camp Loopy I’m going to like even better – the way the colors change is so pretty with the yarn I’m using. What kind of yarn are you using?

  3. That turned out really nice, Denise. I will look forward to seeing the scarf knit up, also.
