Knitting and a Little Stitching

Hi Everyone!  I'm so sorry it's been so long since I posted.  As I said before, I have been mainly hanging out on Instagram.  It's such a quick and easy way to share what I'm up to.

I have been knitting a lot lately and teaching myself new techniques.  Like making a sock from the toe-up and trying out a new heel - Fish lips Kiss Heel.  It's been a challenge!  I was not happy with the first sock I made.  The yarn was all wrong, so I started over yesterday and I'm loving it!

Cast on a new pair of socks. I wasn't not happy with that other pair. I'm loving this one! #knitting #sockknitting #toeupsock #sweetgeorgiayarns

I'm loving the funky colors in the sock! It's so much fun. I have had this yarn in my stash for several years, I bought when Sweet Georgia just started out on Etsy. #sockknitting #knitting #sweetgeorgiayarns

I'm so thankful to have great bosses that allow me to knit when it's not busy at work.  I couldn't have asked for a better job!  

To see my knitting finishes for this year click here.  I have been stitching a little bit too.  I have been mainly working on Charlotte Clayton. I'm really close to a finish.  

And here is the whole sampler so far. Not too much more to go! #charlotteclayton #reproductionsampler #crossstitch

I do plan to get back to it very soon!  I'd love to get it finished and framed this year!
