Socks Done! And I've been moving piles...

My spiral socks are done. You may recall that I began with this:

And now I have these - Dorothy's Slip Stitch Spiral Knit Socks!

If you want to see the kind of yarn, link for pattern, and more, check out my page here. This may not be my favorite sock pattern but the technique is fantastic and will work on any circular knit. I will definitely use it again! There is a little orange left so it will show up in another pair of socks. 


I have another quilting retreat coming up. Yes, I just went on retreat, I know! But when you get the chance... I was looking through my studio for UFOs and found a few things to take and a few to just finish. Truthfully, I didn't have to look too hard!

This twin sized quilt needed quilting and binding. It was already pinned. Now it needs the hand work on the binding.

This totem pole wall hanging now has borders and is ready to pin and quilt.

This QOV quilt is finally sewn together. Seems like it took a few years - not sure why. It's now ready to pin and quilt.

I found a bag with 2 1/2" strips of different lengths. I think I was going to make a jelly roll race quilt - so I did! Now it is  ready to pin and quilt.

So ... I moved one quilt from the quilt pile to the binding pile a very short pile.  And I moved 3 quilts from the finish piecing pile to the pin and quilt pile a very tall pile. One of these days I'll move some quilts to the finished pile! Isn't the pile moving game fun?!


  1. Hey, as long as the quilts are moving, you're making progress! ;-) Lucky you for getting to another retreat. I am signed up for a retreat in November, and there's one in October that I would like to go to if there's no swim meet that weekend and if they're not sold out by the time I find out if I can go. Enjoy your time at retreat!

  2. Great socks! Lots done. Have fun at retreat. I need to go on a retreat one day.
