I told you all about our dyeing workshop we had late last year. One Of the girls who attended the workshop really wanted some socks out of her yarn but is only learning how to cast on so it will be a long while before she is up too sock herself. Some how I volunteered to knit them. I made them using the magic loop because I was unsure how many meters in the hank and she has a large foot.

I have wanted to try block of the month Quilts but they are very costly. Last month I found a hexagon one that runs for 8 months at $38 a month. I know its a lot but I just had to have it. The first month arrived on Monday and I have spent the last two days just looking at the fabric.

Quilt as you go is the method that Melva ( a lady at quilting ) uses to make all her quilts for both nursing home's in town. I am making a quilt for our youngest son's girl friend. I was given a stack of 5" square samples and was planing on making a pioneer braid quilt. Melva explained how to make it quilt as you go.

I have been a bit preoccupied this last month, We have had visitors and now we are getting ready for another trip to Cowell, (have a look)We are going with Wayne's brother and his wife and Wayne's parents. I finished a cardigan last year I don't know what I am going to take to do this year. I don't go out in the boat because they go all day and my back doesn't cope standing etc in the boat. I used to go fishing all the time with Wayne but that's just another thing I can't do now.
I gave one of my striped sock blanks to my friend Helen to knit up so I can see how it will work for socks . I think it looks amazing
