Catch-up


Daughter #1 flew into St Louis yesterday !
Looking forward to all the activities that we hope to pack in during her stay.

Yes, I am conquering Pointelle in Goldenrod.
Using lots and lots of quite concentration.
I'm beginning the foot portion on both sox
as I am knitting 2-at-a-time.
This is the easy part since only the instep requires following the pattern chart.
The sole is just the knit stitch.

Do you remember when I won  Ariane's Crafts giveaway
of sixty 3.5" PINK tumbler blocks?
I finally got on the stick and 
ordered AccuQuilt's 3.5" tumbler die cutter 
and
a few yards of Kaffee Fassett's  shot cotton
for the alternate blocks.

AND 
to use with the Moda SunKissed FQs.


Hugs

  1. Gerry, so glad you got to visit with #1 daughter. How many do you have? I only have one daughter [my oldest] and four sons.
    Your socks are fantastic! I hope one day to knit more detailed socks. I am getting ready to start my second pair. I promised my mother in law a pair and guess what color she picked? Yes, Pink!
    Warmly,
    Tracey

  3. I'm glad to see your commitment to the Goldenrod yarn. You may make it yet. They are looking much, much better (are you sure this is really the same yarn)?
