Hello Knitters,

I finally finished my lacy anklets!! I did the end of the edging this morning, and now they are off my needles. What a HUGE relief! I had no idea they were weighing on me so much, but now that they are done I feel tons better. It's not that I don't like them, I just for some reason lost interest in them when I was done the first one, but I wanted to stick to my goal of not knitting anything else until I was finished the pair, and that was a lot harder than I anticipated. I'm just so glad to have them done and can't wait to begin knitting something new.

I didn't get much sewing done while I was trying to complete the socks, but a couple of days ago I made the "Summer Nightie" from One-Yard Wonders. The fabric I used was from my Fabricland-sale-stash. It's very light and airy, and I've been enjoying wearing it these last few nights since It's been a bit warm. It was a super fast project and I finished it all in one day.

Yesterday afternoon I started working on a bag from the One-Yard Wonder's book, but I didn't get very far. I spent about an hour working on it though and I hope to get back to it today.

Well, I don't have much else to report, so I think I will go and start looking for my next project. Have a great afternoon everyone!

Happy Knitting!!


  1. I love those socks..... gorgeous colour too. I have several projects on the go that haven't grabbed me and I'm having trouble getting back at them to get them finished up. Seeing the result of your perserverence just might get me going again! That nightie looks perfect for this hot weather we're enjoying. I'd be tempted to wear it as a dress for the day.

  2. Those socks are so cute. I love your nightie! Super feminine and it look super comfy. I haven't gotten to that project out of OYW yet but can't wait to go fabric shopping for something just as cute as you've used!
