Slow progress is progress, right? That’s what slow stitching is all about..... taking time to enjoy the process rather than just rushing though. I’m working on knitting my franken-socks and my sweater. I have one sock finished. I thought I’d post a picture of the sock and the 3 yarns I’m using. Even if it isn’t the prettiest pair of socks I’ve ever made, they will still keep my feet warm and cozy. Way back when we first started our english paper piecing business that we have since sold, I bought a digital scale so we could weight our products for shipping. We kept the scale and it is sensitive enough to be able to weight yarn. I’m able to take my leftover yarns and weigh them and then divide them up to get accurate amounts for the 2 socks.
And finally, I have a UFO finish. This started its life in 2014 as a rainbow scrap challenge. It was intended then to be a full sized quilt. However it stalled out and sat in its zip lock bag for 7 years. In that time so much has changed, and the need and ability to make full sized quilts no longer exists. So it is finishing its life as a lap quilt that will be donated to the Prayers and Squares group. There are still 24 six inch bow ties left that need to become something. I just thought..... maybe a table topper. I never used to make those but now I’m finding I like them. Yep that’s it, that’s what I’ll do and then they are completely used up.
