Progress Update

Sewwitty's Plain Sock

Sewwitty’s Plain Sock

My copy of Downton Abbey series 5 arrived, which meant there was a lot of sitting on the sofa time knitting. I just love the costumes …

I have turned the heel, picked up stitches and now I am decreasing back to the original number. I always feel that I am almost finished when I get to this point.

I’ve also finished three of the above blocks! I’ve worked out that it is better to do a little bit, go off and do something else, a little bit more etc.

Languishing Project

Log Cabin Quilt Block

Log Cabin Quilt Block

This project is holding me back (my Sampler quilt) – I have to make myself work on it. I have finished two of these blocks, so only two more to go and then I have another 4 full sized blocks to make; Pineapple, Pinwheel, Snail Trail and Wedding Ring.

Each full sized block takes about 4 hours to make, so fiddly, and I no longer like my fabric choice. But I feel I should push on because I have already spent so much time on it.
