Here's What Has Been Keeping Me Busy

Working on another candidate for our quilt guild potholder swap.

The pieced strip is a leftover from something or other.

Enough for these four potholders -
plus the piece I'm holding
that is
just the size for

Mug Rug

Think I'll make a few more pot holders then cut the binding strips.
Yes, I'll be cutting those strips with the GO! cutter and die.

I'll machine sew the first side of the binding to the potholders
then finish by hand stitching
while I sit in the evening.


Hang Ten
at the point where the gusset is finished.

This is the first time I've knit the heel in this manner.
These sox are worked from the cuff down.
The cuff is resting at the bottom of these pics.

The photo below shows
The center of the heel is located at my thumb

with the gusset increases between my thumb and index finger.

Just one row short of being ready to begin the
heel portion that curves around my heel and becomes the sole

I hope to make fast progress and finish these by next weekend.

  1. Looks like you had a fun afternoon on the 25th....

  2. The "pot holders" are a joy to see.

    The nail polish may compliment them.

  3. I like the blue granite nail polish!
    and are we sick of doom and gloom with this rain or what?

  4. You'd never know it was raining Gerry - it's too cheerful in your house! LOVE those pot holders and the mug rug - fantastic colour combo!

    I always admire people who can knit, it's one of those skills that I just can't seem to pick up, I have a mental block. Love the socks!!!!

    Hugs sweetie!
    Vikki :-)

  7. Gerry - love the blue glitter polish. So very you!!! I have a new bottle of black onyx I want to try - but I'm too lazy right now.

    Love the 'mug rug/pot holders'. Aren't they fun to make.

  8. Blue polish? I would have figured you for a pink girl! Ha, ha.
    Love the socks..oh they are just great. I am getting ready to try socks with two needles. We'll see how it goes.

    PS: More veggies this week..promise.

  9. Love the potholders!!!! So bright and springy. You are something else, girlfriend!

  10. Love your socks! Can't wait to see them in real life. The blue nail polish is a nice highlight in the pics!

  11. The potholders are great. The socks look even greater. There is a lot of work in them. You will be wearing them the next time I see you I bet.

    Love your blue nails with sparkles ;-)

  13. Those potholders and mug mats are really cute, and of course I love the sox! And I love your fingernail polish. I love to see it on others, but never polish my own. However, I ALWAYS polish my toenails! :o)
