Projects? Just a Few.......

Let's see now, Dick's upstairs watching the UW/Notre Dame game; our son's in Indiana watching the game in person; our younger daughter is somewhere in India for work; my sister called from JOANN's in Hibbing on the way to their cabin; our older daughter is probably enjoying naptime on Sylvan Lake; and me? I'm sitting here trying to figure out what I've been doing lately.

Well, first there's this project:
Can you guess what this is?
Actually, I'm beyond this stage now, and it would be easy to tell, but I'll let you wonder for a while.

I just couldn't resist this mystery sock on Through the Loops blog and am about up-to-date on BOTH socks. Of course it's only the first week. This pattern would probably look better in a solid color, but I am loving my yarn choice. (Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett)
Sock Number One

That's all you say? Well, I've also been trying to put away some of the fabric I bought on our trip. This piece tickled me:

Especially after seeing this recent photo taken somewhere in the Southwest.

Who'd have thought this little critter would have its own fabric line?

Yesterday I did a tiny bit of work on the fourth Christmas BOM and got a "block assignment" from our quilt group. Best get to work! Ciao!

Dear Judy
Your first project is a beautiful color ..
I do not know really what it should be - perhaps a " Bolero "?
The Kaffe Fassett yarn, that looks good .. and the pattern looks enormous!
The Geko fabric is so nice - I like these little runners happy :-)
have a nice sunday.

I LOVE your socks so far. I think it will work great in that color.

Hmmmmmmmmm...a baby sweater for that first project pic?

The red looks like sleeves to a baby sweater, but why would you knit the sleeves separately? Hmm, the mystery continues.

Your sock yarn is yummy. It reminds me of candy.

I guess maybe socks, but I'm truly clueless. I need to learn to knit. DH wants to go places and at least I can take knitting with me.

You're right that fabric is cute - what will you do with it (other than admire it). Looked at your daughter's blog - fascinating! Thanks for sharing that - I love "seeing" other parts of the world - especially from one person's perspective - even if it's virtually.

Hi Judy,
Thanks for visiting. The retreat was WONDERFUL and a much needed break. LOL.

I love your new banner - what a darling little guy you've captured there.

I read through your trip post - wow - how fun. You were actually quite close to us at one point.

I've been to most of the places you listed and they are just beautiful. I don't think I've ever been to the Watchtower.

Great photos and I'm so glad you had so much fun. Nice to see you again. Take care.

Your sock is just so pretty!

Jane said...

I give up ?? Me thinks Barb C may be right about the sweater arms? I love the colors in those socks your doing... looks like they'll make for some Happy Feet LOL

Cat said...

Oh yes, I get to be a "football widow" too! I can get a lot of stitchin' done while my sweetie watches the games!

Love the multicolor socks!

And cute lizzard too...
