I've been with friends, eating too much (though not that much drinking other than a sip of champange to greet the new year).
For Chistmas I had made two pairs of socks, which I both forgot to take pictures off before I gave them away. My parents also got potholders (the last one I've made show a little bit of use and a few burn marks, so it was time for a new set)
Speaking of left over yarn. I decided to knit a scrappy blanket using the sock yarn left overs.
The plan is to knit 8 to 10 stripes on the diagonal with different width. I'm holding the yarn double and switch out one color every 6 to 10 rows. Primary I'm going to use blues and greens and some neutrals, with a few dashes of other colors now and then.
If you happen to have some sock yarn in those colors left over, I'm more than happy to take those off your hands.
I'm also back on the sewing machine. For one thing I finally basted the scrappy quilt top I made months ago and which has been sitting in my craft room looking at me accusingly every time I came in. I'm planning on doing the actual quilting this weekend.
I also had a quick sew for a kindle stand.
Basically a kind of sack sewn to give it a triangular shape, then stuffed with fabric sraps and a cup of dry beans (for weight). It's not perfect - to begin with, I stuffed it too tight first time round - but it does it's intented job.
