On the Needles

I started a class on knitting socks toe up with an after-thought heel.  Sock knitting has never been on top of my knitting list.  But I found some yarn that "spoke" to me.
The yarn is Done Roving Yarns, Frolicking Feet in color way Pot of Gold.

On the Needles

I am making slow but steady progress on my first Custom Fit sweater.  The back and right front are done and I casted on the left front last night.
I have put all of my other knitting projects and challenges on hold until I finish this one.

Design Wall Monday

I can't remember ever participating in Design Wall Monday.  Most of my quilts are hand applique and I rarely have much progress to show. 
Our guild had a "petal" swap last year and we have until May 2015 to put it together.
This is the project so far.  I had lots of left over petals--enough for 2 more quilts.
They were put together in a very random fashion.  I haven't done this much machine piecing in a very long time.

Yarn Report Week 39

Last week a few friends and I went on our first yarn crawl!  It was so much fun.  I can't wait to do it again.  I only added 2 skeins of beautiful merino.  Each skein is 500 yards.
I totally surprised myself with my self control.

Yarn in this week:  2 skeins=1000 yards
Yarn out this week:  0 (but I have been working on my V-neck cardigan)
In YTD:  33 skeins=12963 yards
Out YTD:  21 skeins=4948 yards.
