I have not posted on much other than knitting socks lately. We had been in the RV for a few months and not much sewing was getting done.
Yesterday I finished putting the borders on this mystery quilt that is a QOV. I thought I had enough BIG pieces of fabric to make the backing but no such luck-darn a trip to the LQS is necessary. This is the latest mystery-Star Path from Mystery 4 Military Yahoo group. This is the second mystery I have done with them and really enjoy the process.
Today I am back to working on my blue Irish chain. I started it several months ago as an 80th birthday present for our friend Bill. I did not get it done and he got another gift. Now his wife is having her 80th and I know she really, really wants a quilt. I am making the quilt larger by adding partial blocks around the edges. So far so good-
Earlier today I also spent an hour knitting socks. This is the first time I have used malabrigo sock yarn. I feels so nice and it is a great mix of blues and greens. It is a gift for a friend who loves all things green. I am in a hurry to finish this one sock up so I can get started on Socktober Fest. Two different balls of Opal yarn arrived yesterday and there are 2 more out there somewhere hopefully to arrive in my mailbox today or tomorrow.
