A Sewing Day

Another Saturday spent sewing with a friend.  She made great progress on one of her tree skirts – half her blocks are done – and I finished the last rows and got the border on my Moda Challenge quilt – Diamond Formation.  I was going to get the backing stitched and maybe layer it tonight but  we shall see. I need a break from that sewing room chair and table.  But I hope to get this layered tomorrow if I don’t get back to it tonight.

I also dug out all the single socks from the SSB (single sock box) — don’t you have a SSB at your house?  The SSB still holds the yarn that is needed to complete these socks but the socks are hanging up on the wall to (1) remind me to finish them – you know how it goes “out of sight, out of mind” and (2) just cause I like looking at them even if some of the smaller ones never get finished.  A couple actually do have notes pinned to them as to needle size and one of the patterns I wasn’t sure of was actually stuck I the bottom of the SSB so there’s hope to get some of these finished off.

  1. They just need to have another red bow at the other end of the line and they will be a perfect bit of Christmas cheer! Think of it as decorated for Christmas early!

  2. Yup, Lovely socks. But, I am really impressed with the quilt top…When you first started wasn’t sure, mostly because I don’t go for those colors. But the finished top—Wow!

  3. OMG!! You DO have a few solo socks waiting for their forever mate. They look pretty hanging there. I would probably finish them in the order of my favorite colors first. lol

  4. All these beautiful socks need mates, even lf they have to be given to someone outside the family

    • Knitting is something I’m totally selfish about, other than one friend who does get knit socks from me, I don’t knit for anyone other than family.

  5. Oh, I just saw your header, that is so cute. And I do love your socks. So pretty hanging there. I don’t have any single socks as I read all about them when I first started and shortly thereafter I began doing two at a time.

    • I envy you your no single socks. I’ve tried many methods of two at a time and always end up going back to my double points. Perhaps I just need to cast on socks on two different sets of double points and switch back and forth between the two socks.
