It's been a week since I have posted anything.
Unfortunately I had to have my shoulder injected again
and was in a sling for a few days.
It's difficult to sew or knit with that on your arm,
so I'm glad to have something to post.
I was actually gone last week and was able to get some
knitting done while traveling back and forth.
(My basketball team won their conference Championship!!)
One pair of socks is finished!
I made a mistake and made the first sock too short,
so had to rip out the toe and add some length to it.
The colors in this yarn make me smile.
Another pair of socks was started on my trip.
This yarn is "Sausalito" and is wonderful to knit!
This heel was made with the "Short Row Heel" method.
This was my first time knitting a "Short Row" anything
and I like how it turned out. There was no picking up
stitches with this method.
I started the Elephant baby quilt for my niece's baby yesterday.
The trunk may not stay as it is...
I think it's dark compared to the rest of the elephant.
The pieces are all cut and placed on my design wall.
Libby in TN had an excellent idea last week
regarding the piecing of this elephant.
Instead of making this with individual pieces,
I sewed the fabrics crazy quilt style and then cut out each section.
There won't be nearly as much applique stitching to do now!
This is the pattern I'm using to make "Ellie."
The background is ready to be sewn and then I will begin
adding the elephant pieces to it.
