Ahhhhh Lenore!

This was one of the offerings from the Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Rockin Sock Club. When I received it in the mail last fall, I wasn't feeling well and just didn't feel like working on a dark color through Seattle's drizzly winter. Well, the other day, the sky was blue and my daffodils were blooming, so it was time to start Lenore! I really enjoyed this pattern and I even found it a little sexy (if a handknit sock can be sexy) The pattern was easy to follow and even though the yarn is a dark charcoal, the little hints of pink made it very fun to knit with. I will definitely wear these socks a great deal and will probably knit them in another color. Maybe red? Then they can be Red Hot Lenore!

Month 2 Quilt Club

Month two of Emilies Raspberry Truffle is finished. This is an online project using charm packs from Connecting Threads. It is an easy quilt so far and paced at two blocks of the same design for that month. It's fun to see it grow and see how different fabrics look in the same block. I look forward to seeing the finished project. It is a great project for a beginner who wants to give quilting a try.
