I finally finished the Toe-Up Panda Sup Twist sock!! The yarn is rom Crystal Palace and the color name is "Mint Print." Despite the broken size 1 bamboo circs. It's all blocked. Now I need to finish writing up the pattern! :)

I've been playing with the "antique" quilting stitches on my Pfaff 2058. This is the wrong (non-public) side of a pocket on a tote bag I'm making. The stitches show up really well here since the backing is not pieced and is a dark color with light thread. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

WOW! I can't believe I haven't posted anything since JUNE! You know what they say - time flies when you're having fun, and I've been having a blast! LOVE being retired. Just too busy, though!

I've been playing with the new Panda Superwash from Crystal Palace. Love that, too! The yarn is soft and easy to work with. I'm so excited they came out with a superwash sock yarn!! I started this sock with a lacy rib leg, but it was way too loose, so I frogged the leg (it's a toe-up pattern) and am trying a small cable. Here's what I have so far! (It's too soon to tell if the cabling will be tight enough.)
