On and Off the Needles + Sue Update

Among the things that are on my needles this week are this scarf which is a one-row pattern using a Trendsetter yarn called Bohemia  (The beads are already on the yarn.) and



the infamous Knitters Brewing Company sock KAL.  I am a little behind thanks to our vacation trip, but I hope to have one sock finished by the end of next week.  It's a fun pattern but requires concentration! (I had to rip out most of what I did while watching the final episode of Downton Abbey. If you saw it, you'll know why!)


These booties were finished and mailed off before I posted them. If you're looking for a quick and cute baby gift I'd recommend Saartje's booties.  The pattern is on Ravelry. Mocha, at least found them quite interesting but was probably wondering how come there were only two.



Two pair of socks came off the needles, this one in Florida.  Both, however, got the finishing touches this week.  


I really found knitting the gusset on this pair very interesting as I'd never seen a pattern that did it this way before. The pattern is called "Weeping Angels" and is also on Ravelry.



Sunbonnet Sue finally got her borders yesterday.  I am going to have a quilting friend quilt her since I spent so much time on the TAST embroidery stitches. 



Now if it were only sunny instead of rainy and windy, I'd go prune the roses. I'm sure there's something else waiting though!

Your sunbonnet Sue quilt came out so cute. You'll have to post again when it's all quilted.

Lovely socks. Sounds like you are still having sock weather. We are well into summer --- 86 today!

Glad you like the shawl! :-) I'm happy it will get worn.

As always your knitting is beautiful. Your color selections are always gorgeous. I love The Sunbonnet Sue quilt. It really is one of the sweetest quilts I've seen.

It was nice to hear from you. Yes it has been a long time. I see from looking through your blog you have been very busy with your gorgeous knitting and sewing. A fun trip to Florida too. I must say that I have not been sewing for about a year now. I shall probably get back to it soon but I am having so much fun with my watercolors. I was an oil painter until I developed an allergy to it. Now that I have found watercolor and its challenges
I am hooked. PS I can hardly wait for season 4 of Downton Abbey to start.

You have been a busy girl! I sure wish I could knit more than just a basic washcloth!:)

Linda said...

I'm still in awe of your talent Judy! I know socks are the most difficult things to knit, but you seem to have mastered the skill.
Your quilt is adorable too....
