Come Blog Along Pattern 02 Post 03


Knitting on the Road: Canada Canal du Midi • Conwy • Dalarna • Denmark • Friday Harbor • Hiiumaa • Huron Mountain • New England • The Road to Oslo • Santa Fe • Spey Valley • Christmas in Tallinn • Traveler's Stockings • Uinta Cabin • Unst • Whitby

Today it seems that my year of projects update is more of a lack-of-progress report than otherwise. This first Canal du Midi sock is a couple inches further along - not much to show.

I've got lots of excuses if you want to hear them: playing with silk mawatas on Tuesday, knitting Christmas bags obsessively on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, starting a CeCe cardigan ... pretty much doing everything but knit these socks.

The knitting outlook for today doesn't look any more promising. With the house all to myself, I'm going to spend the day quilting. Now that's something I haven't done for a while. I've gathered up all my batik fabric scraps and cut them down to uniform strips with the idea of making a braid quilt. Can't wait to get started!

Have fun quilting! The socks will still be there when you're ready for them.

Love the colour you are using there!

You and me both. I have not much of an update, a few rows added. I was busy with another project that wasn't on my list for a present.

The sock looks beautiful! Love the fabric.

Love quilts! If I had the time and room to leave my stuff set up, I would be all over it. Have a lovely day alone.

You need a break sometimes. I'm having one today as along the outside of my right thumb is painful. Hoping its not serious and I can get back to crochet/knitting soon.

Your excuses sound really interesting; I hope you will show them to us, your quilt too as it's going to be very pretty.

Go on - you can do it! Think how good it will feel to enjoy all the other prjects without the sock-neglect-guilt! (I speak from experience, but not of socks!)

Have a great week

It's always great to mix things up so think of this week as progress on using your other skills! Enjoy.

I wish my excuses were as pretty as yours. Mine usually involve throwing my spouse or my sister under the bus.
