On My Needles

Well, I'm a bit late posting this blog but this was my first opportunity to get some pictures of my projects.

I finished yoga socks for my daughter.  They were a surprise so I couldn't post a picture earlier as she follows Judy's blog. She really likes them - so does her yoga instructor. The pattern is a freeby from  Patons Kroy Socks and uses their sock yarn.  They go really quickly since you don't have to turn a heel or finish a toe!! 

I also accepted a Pay It Forward from a friend on Facebook so now I am going to make five gifts for people who sign up for mine.  I have started the first project - a potato chip scarf.  The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight.

Finally I am taking a Fair Isle class with a friend next weekend and there was some pre-work for the class.  We grabbed a quick lunch on Friday and then came back here to knit.  The pattern is the Snowflake Cowl from the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2012 magazine.  The yarn is Cascade Pacific chunky and it is so soft!!

I am also including a picture of my first quilting finish for 2013 as I got it done last night. It is one of my January projects.

That's it for now.  I have to get serious about putting away the Christmas decorations.  Since I fell at the end of November and tore a bunch of ligaments in my foot my activities have been a bit restricted (try three weeks in a non-weight bearing cast over Christmas and New Year's!) but I am now in a boot so have to play catch up.  It's a cold, rainy day - no real reason to do much else so I'm off to undecorate.
