Fettishes: Blocks and Socks!

 Two more scrappy blocks completed.

This first one was rather time-consuming
but it turned out pretty well.  I actually wish I'd
chosen some prettier fabrics because it turned
out so well!  But it's all about scraps here.

After that first one, this one flew together!  And
now, I'm caught up through November for the
Fat Quarter Scrappy Stars Quilt Along.

The sock class was great--easier than I expected.  
I'm already done with my homework and
may even jump ahead.  Socks!  I'm knitting socks!
Of course, these are very basic but I've already
picked up some sock yarn and have been thumbing
through patterns.

Maybe I get overly-excited about knitting?
I just love it, though, and I've signed up for the next
class which is for gloves--finger or fingerless. 

I'm hooked.  Completely.
The beret got put on hold while I "warmed up" 
for my class on another basic hat.
I had no idea the yarn would look
so cool when knitted up--but, I'll have to get a pic

Woohoo, more scraps off the pile! Think I'll leave you with the socks though, my wool allergy makes me feel mildly itchy just thinking about it lol

The first time I made a pair of socks I was so tickled. It made me feel so self-sufficient. If suddenly the retail world came crashing down, I could make my own socks!!!

Beautiful blocks! Look at you go on those socks. I started one a number of years ago and it still sitting on the needles.
