A Bit of This, A Bit of That
Another week seems to have come and gone without me quite getting a handle on it. I'm blaming it on spring fever. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I began sewing the little four blocks to the setting squares on Sunday night. As I said before, this is the quickest I have ever had a quilt go together. The diagonal strips are done and I'm about half-way through piecing the strips together. The blue and pink is part of the same same fabric collection which I ordered on-line and intend to use for the border.
Somehow I seem to have caught a sock bug this winter. I blame it on the fact that I discovered a really nice yarn shop close by. The owner gave me a very simple, very generic sock pattern a few skeins ago and I find it very nice to have another little craft to tuck into those moments when I get stalled out with quilting. Or when I need something a little mindless and soothing to do.
This is the cuff of a sock I've been working on for a while. I actually had the whole sock done (from a published pattern), but I didn't like the heel, or the toe, for that matter, so I pulled it all back and now I'm back to my regular, generic pattern. The yarn is from Mountain Colors and is very easy to knit with. The color is Sierra. It reminds me of a sunset over a mountain.
I have been blog-hopping and I noticed that several have mentioned that they are not always receiving e-mail notification when comments are posted on their blogs. This is also happening to me. So...if you have commented and I haven't replied, please know that I will get back to you. I appreciate all the comments that I get. I still find it incredible that I am communicating with a community that is world-wide.
