Stuck in the mud

I've been stuck on some socks. I'm generally a one at a time knitter (is that supposed to be 'an one' because that does not sound right!) but lately I'm not.

I messed with some sock yarn several times to finally get the fit I wanted. I'm halfway down the foot and not inspired at all to finish it. Using the same yarn in a different colorway I'm still having trouble. I like my socks to fit tightly, no slouch for me. But I'm quite sure that this sock is not going to be tight enough for my tastes.

So I stuffed them both in a box and have worked several other projects. Simple things that required little thought.

A hat

A tiny soaker

And now a slightly bigger soaker I just started tonight.

Knitting is supposed to be fun so that's what I'll make it. I'll either frog the socks later or give them to someone with big ankles.

I've been doing a lot of sewing

here are a few of my favorite items but no, by far, the entirety of what I've sewn in he last week.

A late mother's day present for my mom.

A matching zippered tote

3 wetbags for cloth diapers, the small one is to bring along prewet wipes

A medium diaper cover

3 medium diapers for G

A small diaper cover

This is all thanks to a friend that gave me so much fabric! Its a lot of work but its nice not to have to buy all these things since I can make them myself.
