Socks in all stages

 I had started this post yesterday with the thought of doing it on the gardening. That has mainly what I’ve been up to these past couple weeks. 

But then I went into the studio because I was going to work on getting the snowman wallhanging finished (spoiler alert: didn’t) ……Well I got sidetracked. I had this organizing bug hit me and I started cleaning up the studio and came across a bunch of knitted WIP’s. So then I thought, I’m going to share my WIP’s because I believe a lot of us have the same issue. Which I definitely have. That is too start a project and not finish it by before I start a new one.  So I took a picture of the basket with all my sock WIP’s.

 Now mind you this is only my socks. I have many other whips that I am not including because I’m categorizing my projects. So here are the WIP’s I have in the basket. 


Now these WIP’s come in all stages. 

From the planning stage to being almost completed, like needing the toes sewn together.

This pair of socks is a good example of "why in the heck did I not finish the last step"

This pair was a Christmas gift from my eldest daughter, a year long sock of the month club. Been fun and long having a gift each month.

This next pair was from Christmas 2020. An advent skien which each day you knit a strip up until Christmas Day.  I was going through chemo at that time and didn't want to try making the heel, my concentration was fuzzy. 

My plan is to do an afterthought heel. Have never done one before and had put it off. Once I do these, they'll be done. 

I started this pair in June of 2020, the oldest WIP.

Just started the heel on the second sock. I think I'm starting to see a pattern, THE HEEL.....

I do have had issues with heels, not my favorite part. Keep trying different ways to make them. Can't say I have yet from a favorite one.

Not sure when I started these but I think it might of been last year..

Oh looky..... I stopped again at the heel on the second sock, go figure.

Will be such a pretty fall pair to wear.

I love this color and look for to wearing them. No pattern, my own making but base on a pattern I'd seen. Tried a different heel on this pair. Like it better than most styles I tried.

This pair is another one of the sock of the month club.

Colors are so bright and cheery. This is the first pair of shorties I have knitted.

So I just had to to start another pair of shorties....

This is one of Summer Lee's patterns. It is made from scraps leftover from other projects. I fun pair to knit.

This next two patterns I fell in love with.
they are done in color work. only barely started the first one and the others just prep and ready to start.


So that is my 9 sock WIP's.   

When I gather some of the other WIP's,  I'll be sharing those too.

Till next time 



  1. Hmmm, I think maybe you like knitting socks. Not so sure about finishing them though. LOL

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

Yarn Along 2/20/13 Spoon Pin Doily

It's snowing here and I know some of you are tired of snow but here we will take the moisture any way we can get it. Plus it just gives me a reason to stay in and work on some of my projects. In this picture I'm not sure if you can make it out but in the background there are some wild turkeys that hang around the house sometime, just  chilling This project I'm working on is Spool Pin Doilies.   I had never heard of them before until Bonnie Hunter had mentioned it on her blog . She a had a viewer send her one for her sewing machine along with a pattern. I did not like the pattern but loved the idea so I decided to make up my own version. I wanted a more simple, smaller and fuller doily. So I tried different thread sizes to get one that I like. (From left to right) I tried sock yarn, which I'll redo because I think I like that look. Heavy weight crochet thread, nope too big Bamboo yarn, I like it. Looks good on my Kenmore. Pearl cott

What's Up

Well that is a big question, what's up Seeing how I haven't posted since before the retreat I went to. So I will show what I did at the retreat and what I have been doing these past few days, which is this Log Cabin Christmas Tree  wall hanging I have the blocks completed and now it just a matter of getting them sewn together. I'll get to that tomorrow. While at the retreat I made this baby quilt top with the disappearing 4-patch block. I had a charm pack and used some "snow" fabric Kaufman snow is one of my favorite whites to use. It's white but not a stark, bright white, goes well with a majority of the fabric I've collected. I started late making my blocks for RCS14 First I wasn't sure what pattern I wanted to make and then with all that was going on the first part of the year, I didn't start until July. One quilt is using a quarter log cabin in solid colors. I made these at the retreat, have the other half t
