Knitting socks

I'm knitting these blue mock-cable socks.

Because there's a football game, and knitting and football go well together. :-)

Orange UFO ...

A long time ago, I posted about playing with orange fabric ...
Much of that fabric is still partly-assembled ... Orange sheet fabric, and solid, striped, and plaid shirt fabric.

So, the other day, I used the orange Un-Finished Object to test my "new" sewing machine. I assembled more triangles that were already cut out, and I developed a layout for the pieces I have.

I got a great deal on the sewing machine at my favorite thrift store, and it runs well. Even though I have multiple sewing machines, I like them all for different reasons. And since sometimes I'm not the only one sewing, it makes sense to have a collection of reliable machines!

I only occasionally find myself sewing these days, but I'm always impressed at how much progress can be made in little bits of time.

I'm linking this post to this week's UFO Challenge at Jo's Country Junction. What Jo said in her post makes sense to me - a regular Wednesday UFO post is motivation to get "just a little more" done!

Socks, again

I've been making occasional progress on this pair of socks. Blue, with mock cables.
I'm knitting both socks at once, and the hard part of the heel is done on each, so I think I'm on the home stretch!
