Now for something completely different….
A break from Temple Court to tackle a different kind of UFO.
Begun more than a decade ago, here’s an example of “second sock syndrome”. Sock #1 was complete [but a little too big for me.] Sock #2 was half done. With cold damp weather upon us, I sat down on Tuesday to watch Mythbusters blow stuff up while I frogstitched and reknit the toe of sock 1 and finished off sock 2.
I mostly knit toe-up socks these days, so I had to rely on StitchDiva for help with Kitchener stitch grafting for the toes, but I’m done and ready to wear these to Curves Bootcamp tonight: I’ll be walking [running, jumping, hopping, squatting and stretching] on the wild side for sure!
Temple Court Update: Despite my best intentions to work only from stash, I decided to purchase fabric for setting triangles. The solid black originally planned proved to be a magnet for cat hair and lint. The black/grey print is washed and ready to iron, so I’m excited to start cutting triangles and assembling blocks into row tomorrow.
Meanwhile, my daughter-in-law tells me she’s planning a teddy bear theme for our Grandson due in February. I redesigned a pattern from Quilter’s Cache and am playing with fabric choices in EQ7. Here’s what we have so far: Bre-Anne likes the brown/blue version, so that’s what I’m hoping to have on the design wall before Christmas.
