I have all of the rows done now for my Woodland Trails quilt using the pattern Northern Lights by Jaybird Quilts, except for one row which has gone mysteriously missing. I am so happy with this quilt, and that what I have created is better than I had envisioned. I am excited to get this sewn together, and then the scary part will come when I have to cut along the sides to make it rectangular.

I got my sock problem figured out. I went back to the store where I got my sock yarn and the woman who works there told me that yes, socks can take more than one ball to make.
I bought another ball, and then couldn't resist buying another 3 balls of the same yarn in a very pretty colourway. I am back to knitting again and it will be perfect to do while watching the Olympics!

So far, my Drop and Give me Twenty has been going quite well. It is keeping me focused on my quilting. I have been surprised at how much can get done in a small time period. It is wonderful to see this quilt come together. Once I started, I realized that I have enough hexagons and fabric left over to make a second one, though it will be slightly different.

The project I am going to be working on is a quilt that I hope to have done for June. The fabric is cut and ready to go. I am really looking forward to seeing how well 20 minutes works. I may need to use it for other facets of my life.

I made two pencil cases over the weekend. The first one was declared to not be wide enough, so a second one was quickly made. I noticed that the first pencil case would be perfect for my sock knitting, but they are hers and hers. Eventually, I will get around to making one for myself. I love how little fabric it takes make such a personalized item.

I have had a bit of a cold lately, so I decided to relax and doing some knitting for my Friday Night Sew In. I decided to branch out with my socks and try one with a cable. I got the pattern from Raverly. I love the look and how quickly it has gone. I only have one issue though I am near the end of the sock and I am positive that I am going to end up short of yarn. The pattern did not specifically say how much yarn was needed to make these socks. Has anyone ever had this issue before? Suggestions would be appreciated.
