Knitting and Gray Quilt Square #1

One day (actually, two days) last week I had a headache. After work, I wasn't up to anything but stockinette, so I picked up a sock that I'd started and then abandoned.

I showed it to my mom on Saturday, and she said my niece would love it. I didn't believe here, so I texted my niece a picture. It is "totally cute." I think I'll give them to her for her birthday in October, which means I'd better knit the second one while I have some momentum.

Yesterday, I wanted to check my math and see if the fabric I cut into quilt pieces were actually the right size. It worked!

One down, 55 more to go. Now that I know the pieces are the right size, I have no anxiety about the quilt. I'll get around to it whenever I get around to it.

I also went back to the Fire Opal. I measured the circumference of my upper arm, measured the width of one full stitch pattern, and figured out I'd need 5 full stitch patterns for the sleeve. I made a lot of progress on sleeve #1, but I had to take a break yesterday when Nocturne found the yarn and decided it was her pillow.

She fell asleep with her head on the ball of yarn immediately after this picture was taken. I decided I'd do something else so as not to disturb the queen.

This weekend also included chocolate chip pancakes, a playground, a surprise visit from a friend, and lots of baseball. I don't think it could have been any better!


  1. That all sounds delightful! :)
    When you get around to it, check out the movie, Chef. I think you'd like it. :)

  2. Crazy! I'm quilting again, and how did my cat (named Bonnie) get in your photo? LOL
