Blocks and Socks

Last night while listening to my basketball team play
their final game of the 2016/17 season,
I made blocks for a new quilt.

More mindless sewing.

I had another layer cake I wanted to use
and paired up the squares for the Hourglass blocks.

After playing around with the blocks on the design wall,
here is what I have.
I see more tweaking needs to be done!

Once the blocks are where they need to be,
I'll sew them together and have another quilt
to give to someone or donate.

Some knitting has been going on here, too, with the travels
I've taken lately.


This pair has actually been finished for a while.
The stripes almost match on these...
totally accidental!

This pair I finished while in Pittsburgh
watching basketball.

My mom found this sock yarn at Tuesday Morning
for $1.99/skein.
Pretty inexpensive pair of socks!

I'm linking to Patchwork Times today.
Take at look at the knitting people are doing.

Have a great weekend!
Happy Creating!

Fun socks and love those hourglass blocks. I really like the colors in those blocks. Will this be a baby quilt or is it larger?

We went to a WNIT game last night to watch our Jackrabbit women play Northern Illinois. It was a win, so now they host Colorado on Sunday afternoon and we have our tickets already. But our Jackrabbit men got stomped by Gonzaga yesterday afternoon. Watched that on TV. It's been a great basketball season.

Your socks turned out really nice. I like the colors and you hit the jackpot with the Tuesday morning find.

The last sock looks like it is Debbie Norville yarn? I think I have the very same one, hehe.
I love that first blue one, yummy!
