Craft report 1

Although I had a two week’s break over Christmas I didn’t get much knitting and quilting done. I finished a pair of socks (Christmas present) for my father but I cut it a bit close to I almost had to wrap it up right after weaving in the ends. Which means… no pictures.

It’s the same with a pair of 6 ply socks for me – I finished them right at the start of our one- week-winter and had to wear them immediately because of my cold feet. I did take a WIP picture right at the start, though:

Before those socks I’ve never realized how much faster a 6 ply sock yarn on 3,5mm needles knits up and I’m thrilled! The weather is much warmer now (all the snow has melted away 😦 ) but hey – one can hope! So I cast on for another pair of those high speedies, using the Regia Design Line by Kaffee Fassett

I’m in love with those colours!
My crafty plans for 2009 contain the finishing of the red monster quilt, the Adamas Shawl and socks galore! I have enough yarn for a cardigan and I’m thinking about two new quilts this year.

Stay tuned for some progress pics of the Pinwheel quilt this week!
See U!

    I love your crafty endeavours!! I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but your socks are inspiring me to try my first knitted pair! I have a salsa class near a yarn shop next Tuesday, and I plan to buy some supplies.
