About Time for Another Post, Don't You Think?

Where does time go?  Lately the days seem to disappear extra quickly, even when we gained an extra hour.  Sigh.  It's been busy here: lots of singing, some travel, and believe it or not, some finishes!

Our youngest granddaughter talked her mom into buying this kit, thinking she could make it and then wear it. (She's 5.) Not. She finally gave it to me to take home, and I, no lover of crochet, made it for her.  It's too big for her baby doll and way too small for GD.  Sophia sewed on the black buttons though which made it special. (I have no idea as to this hat's destiny however!)

I saw this free pattern in a knit shop, loved the stitch, and just had to try it. This is a keeper!  (I used 1 skein of Rios and even had some left.)

It took a while, but I finally finished this pair of socks.  The pattern is Gladys and is also free.

In response to the Squirrel Hill tragedy, I completed these two squares for the Yarns by Design knit shop. This shop is in the town next to Verona where DH grew up, and we've shopped there several times although not recently.

Yep, it's that time of year.  Here are my two contributions to the local Ronald McDonald House stocking project that our quilt group supports.

This stocking is different on the other side.

On this one both sides are the same.

Have a great week and a very Happy Thanksgiving!  (Our family is celebrating this weekend since daughter #2 and family as well as our son will be out of town. DD#1 and family live in IL.)
