Moving Right Along

I know it's 80 degrees outside right now, but I'm on a role with this sock!  Monday I learned to turn the heal and now off I go until I decide how long I would like it to be.  And although my dear daughter rolls her eyes every time she sees me working on this...I'm sure she will want a pair!  Now let's hope I can make at least one more!  I love it!

Something new....well, sort of

Something new....well, sort of


I have begun another type of project while I wait for my machine to receive some needed TLC.  Until I can figure out the tension issue my machine quilting is on hiatus.

So, my friend Nancy and I found this dear little knitting shop not far from home where sisters Elizabeth and Sarah are so patiently working with us to learn to make socks from the toe up.  Although this is not my first adventure in knitting, I felt like I had five thumbs trying to get this started.  And Nancy....I didn't realize she hadn't even been introduced to a knitting needle before this class!  She and I left after the first class laughing thinking about Elizabeth and Sarah and what they must have thought of us.

Here's my beginning after starting over several times.....

I've missed you

I've missed you......

This is the first time I have spent any time with my machine in several months.  I've missed the time we spend together!  But alas I think she needs some TLC...do any of you ever have these issues?
This is what the back looks like when I am attempting to meander.  See the stitching on the curves?  I have adjusted the tension (both the machine's and mine).  Even the straight lines are kinda rough and bumpy on the back.  Front looks fine. 
So...although I was hoping for an afternoon of progress, the only progress I made was un-sewing.
