Yet ANOTHER New Project!
I guess I must be "hyper" or something! At night I seem to have a hard time settling down and getting to sleep, usually I end up playing with my Nintendo DS, so I thought, why not knit. You might have read that I started knitting socks a while ago. I like the idea of knitting, but because I am self-taught, I knit VERY S-L-O-W-L-Y, and often tire of the project (I guess I need immediate gratification). Anyway, I knitted "a" sock for my granddaughter, years ago (she is now 16) when she was a baby. Knitted two pairs of socks last year (one pair had a sock that was really big, the other really small--one pair was okay but the yarn was ugly), and had started on another which has a mistake I can't fix and so will have to take down and start over. I decided to start on yet another pair using a thinner yarn and making them for myself. I will probably only knit at night. I had to start this pair at least 4 times since for me, the beginning is always the hardest and I always make a mistake or drop a stitch! Now, although it is a bit wobbly, I am on my way!!!!!
Well, I am working at home again today. I am teaching an on-line nutrition class this semester and have to put the test on-line. It is very involved and time-consuming, but I am almost done with the first one.
I worked on my Peaches/Berries and Cream Quilt (since I have some blue, red and peach color in it) and will put some of the big blocks together this week-end. I don't know how Judy L. quilts so fast!!!! I am trying to figure out a process that will allow me to move along more quickly. I am anxious to put a quilt on my "finish" list. I also plan to work on the "you know what" quilt --I figure if I mention it everyday I will not put it to the back burner. It is really slow going because I have to match a LOT of points but it too is coming along. One thing I have come to realize---I will NOT be making a Dear Jane Quilt---:D
