Last night while watching the movie Soul Surfer (a truly inspiring movie), I worked on hand-quilting my Christmas Mouse wall hanging. Quilting with #8 Perle Cotton is really making the quilting stand out; giving it almost a Trapunto effect.
I’m also doing a bit of knitting when I need a break from getting the Hexie Turtle pattern ready for testing.
Shortly after I posted about the Hexie Turtle’s Snow Adventure, long time reader, Stephanie D e-mailed me a pattern for Tiny Christmas Socks that her mother made for her and her siblings and then their children each year for Christmas. The pattern calls for knitting them flat and then sewing the side seam but I’m converting it to knitting in the round so that once I’m finished all I need to do is weave in the ends.
I couldn’t find the angora trim that her mother used for the cuff of the socks so I’m using Vanna’s Glamour Diamond from Lion Brand. For the body of the socks, I’m using the Lion Brand Bonbon Metallic scraps leftover from making the Elven Winter Wear.
What are you working on today?
