Sock Madness is coming up right around the corner and I’m signed up again. I made it into Round 6 last year. So in anticipation, I’ve sorted out some yarn options for the Madness and spent a portion of the other day turning hanks into balls.
This year I also decided to put together a few prizes for the Madness, so I put together some notion bags and fabric boxes with working button holes so you can use them like a yarn bowl if that’s your jam.
I bought my zippers and buttons at Pacific Fabrics and picked up the rest of their Row by Row kits to make a nice PNW quilt. (Can there be more hours in the day?) That’s what it will eventually look like there on the left.
Sometimes I feel like the quilting side of things tends to fall behind… and if I want to get my goal of seven quilts this year I’m going to have to kick over into quilt-ville after the Madness. Today I put in the first six days of February of my 365 day challenge.
And before I forget…. I did finish my KAL shawl! Its the latest in my bird themed ones. This one is based on the local Stellar’s Jays with their blue and black.
