Socks!

I am the luckiest girl!  Carolyn made me a pair of socks!  I guess I kinda whined about it. . .being the only girl at the store without a pair. . .but she made me a pair of socks!  They are so pretty and smooshy and comfy and pretty!  Here are a few pictures to get your envy on.

Made from Dream in Color’s Smooshy, I’m not sure what the colorway is, but blissful blues and greens surround my happy feet.  THANK YOU CAROLYN!  She put a simple cable down the side which gives these socks a bit of punch!  She has also chosen to do the heel flap which I really enjoy!

Almost have one sock!

So I’ve been working on my sock, and I am working down the instep towards the toe.  I’m getting closer to finishing the first one.  I can’t wait to finish this one and start the second.

And my friend got a new puppy.  A black lab mix named Timber.  He’s so sweet!

Slow Goin’

It’s been slow goin’ lately.  Haven’t really done anything productive.  I’ve been working on the quilt on the gammill every now and again.  I was stuck for a while because I wasn’t sure what to put in the orange triangles.  But after looking through some patterns, I free handed this design.

I have gotten past the Gussett on my sock as well!

And I finished the Goomba Hat from Ravelry.com

I also went to the beach over the weekend, but I’ll post pictures of that later on.  Time to head off to work now.

Nappy Bag

 So, here’s what’s been goin’ on with me.  I have been spending a lot of time working on my sewing projects lately.  I made myself the Amy Butler High Street Messenger Bag.  It was a little tedious to put together, but I quickly got the hang of it, and it turned out quite nice if I do say so myself.  My friend has also been begging me to get her late bday bag done, so I finally finished that up the other day.  It’s the Nappy Bag from Amy Butler.

I also casted onto my brand new circular sock needles with my Noro sock yarn.  It’s turning out sooo yummy. . .

I started with a checkerboard rib and then went into St st.  The colors are turning out so beautifully.
