I don't know where my 20's are going but they sure are flying. I remember that I couldn't wait to be 10 and in double digits and the wait to 16, 18 and 21 were annoying. Now 30 is knocking on my door and it's scary.
Then of course this is the first birthday without my mom. She would call me right at the minute that I was born every year to wish me a happy birthday. It makes me smile just thinking about it. My dad is taking me to dinner this weekend but it's hard without my mom.
Well then, enough of this melancholia it's WIP Wednesday and I have progress to show you!
LEGO Block Blanket
I made marked progress on the LEGO blanket. I only have 1.5 seams left and just couldn't get to it last night to finish it up for today. I want to get this done soon so it's not looming over my head, though I need to go back and swatch and test wash to make sure the colors don't run. I like to wash baby blankets one time before I gift them and I don't want to destroy the colors and white borders.
|Everything is really squaring up with the vertical seams|
Diagonal Lace Socks
For the most part, the sock part of the first sock is done. I am just working the pattern on the leg/cuff. I really think 2 more pattern repeats will be enough.
|The color got washed out in the picture.|
I do like that you can see that there is variation in the sock that isn't apparent on the image below.
|This is closer to the real color|
I picked these up again because I was a bit annoyed with the Diagonal Lace Socks and the heel. (I am not to proficient at wrap and turns) Anyway, I wanted to see how the edging looked on the squares and started to putz with the join method.
I think the edging looks great and I like the whip stitch through the back look of the edging to join them. What do you think.
|I also did most of the end weaving too.|
