Works in Progress

I have lots of projects going right now. I get tired of working on the same thing all the time so Ichange it up.

I’ve finished two dishcloths and started on a third (you can never have enough of these on hand for quick gifts, or for personal use). I’m almost done with the first slipper of a pair of slippers (thanks to my cousin, Shanna, for the pattern). And I’m working on a quilted table runner. My mother-in-law gave me these Christmas squares years ago and I had no idea what to do with them. I “found” them again last summer and decided a table runner was the ideal project for these squares (of course since I quilt by hand it takes me longer than if I was running this up on the sewing machine)! And finally I started knitting on my socks again. Since it’s been so long since I worked on them, I need to go back to this post ( and watch the youtube videos on how to make the heel!

The picture below is the first slipper in the pair. It’s not quite long enough yet to fit my foot. It’s the first time I’ve used the Fair Isle 2 yarn technique. What would we ever do without youtube videos to help us out?!

 After a quick trip to the grocery store, and since it’s raining outside, it will be a good afternoon to continue working on my WIP’s! The decision will be what to work on: socks, slippers, table runner?????

Red & Green – no, not Christmas!

I started my third pair of socks last week and just finished the first sock yesterday. I decided to go with a short cuff this time! And now I can finally do the Magic Loop cast-on, heel and Russian bind-off WITHOUT pulling up the you-tube videos!  Yay for me!
