Sampler Quilt Blocks

Finally!! These quilt blocks have been hanging around my laundry room for a few years, and I finally decided to sew them together. I'm going to look for a darker fabric to put around the outside, and get it machine quilted soon. This is the year of finishing the unfinished projects!

Death by socks....

I've been killed...but what a way to go!! My Death-by-socks assassin, Elizabeth, got me with these socks today - and I love them! I've been wearing them since they came in the mail, and everyone I've showed loves them, too! This yahoo group is fun and what a great pattern.
Here's my unfinished sock that goes back to Elizabeth to finish for her next victim...

Snowing in NE Pennsylvania..finally....but not enough for me

I guess when you visit Pennsylvania in January, you expect it to snow, but it's still exciting when it happens....especially when you live in South GA and it NEVER snows. I'm spending time with my parents as they recover from hip replacement(dad) and spinal stinosis injections(mom) and this snow was just what I needed for MY therapy. Even though the wind chill was 3 degrees, and the actual temp. was 19 degrees, I took a 2 mile walk just to enjoy the snow and the deep
blue sky.

Chain Link socks finished

This pattern is fun! From the yahoo group six sox knitalong, we knit 6 patterns/year and have lots of fun. These are for my sister, whose favorite color is purple. I knit them on #1dpns using Trekking XXL yarn - one of my favorites.

5.17 miles of sock yarn

Just finished laying out my sock yarn stash and discovered I own MILES of sock yarn waiting to be knitted into socks....I signed up for Limenviolet's sock marathon and discovered how big my stash was....and it doesn't include partial skeins or alpaca I'm not sure what to do with yet...
Heading to PA in a few days to help take care of my dad while he has his hip replaced - hopefully I'll knit some of this into SOCKS!
