Ohhh my, could you call it a form of substance abuse?? Well, I'm certainly abusing the 'ole bank account, I'm gripped by sock addiction. See these two vintage pattern books I 'acquired' with a little help from Ebay. In my defence, I really like the little turn down ladies socks on the older of the two patterns, and who could resist all those tiny kids socks there??
All this, and I've yet to finish ONE sock! It will happen, I promise you that. I swear it has nothing to do with toe terror, life has just gotten in the way. Honestly! Ohhh yes ... and today that definitely was not me in Angus and Robertson ordering a copy of the Yarn Harlot's latest book. Truly, you can't prove anything ... unless you have access to A&R's computer ...
On to another addiction, my DJ blocks. Here are two I completed last night. On the left, H1 Peek-a-Boo. On the right, F4 Old Windmill. I used freezer paper templates again to make these two, I can't even imagine how much faster I would have made the original quilt if I'd tried this technique earlier!
Even though you haven't asked, I thought I'd share that I've mapped out a trip around the world colourway with 30's prints for this version of the quilt, so even though it seems I'm just making random coloured blocks, I actually have a plan!
