I have made a new beginning on the sock project. I HATE MAGIC LOOP. I ended up with long ladders in between the two sets of stitches. Literally huge ones. I attempted to save the stitches from one of the projects, and I got rid of the ladders immediately as soon as the sock was on double pointed needles, but after the first round on the new needles I realized that one stitch had been dropped, probably very early on because I could not locate it at all. I started over and dumped the stitches for the second sock as well.
The yarn is closer in color to the bottom photo but neither is a really good photo. These might have been easier to handle on a set of 5 needles, but all I have right now is the old fashioned sets of 4. I did most of the knitting watching the Grammys last night.
The hexagon project is also a do while watching TV hand project. Almost all of the lightest hexagons have been used. I think I've got only one more. I've already started on some of the next set which is a medium range.
I've chosen the quilting pattern for the square in square blocks. I've drawn them out, but I haven't sewn even one of the sample blocks.
What is going to be interesting with this kind of post, which I think I'll be doing pretty regularly, is that it makes me think about which projects could use some attention. This week, I think I need to make some time for both of the FMQ projects or they will become real UFOs instead of WIP.
Take care all.
