WIP Wednesday - Two at a Time Toe Up Socks

I have always wanted to be a sock knitter, and I think I have arrived.  Knitting two at a time from the toe up is glorious!  Thanks for the inspiration to try and a great book recommendation goes to Mrs. McPorkchop
This glorious yarn was purchased at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC.  It's Alegria from Manos Del Uruguay in Carnaval colorway.

Ugly Fabric Challenge

At a recent quilt class I was given the challenge of using an "ugly fabric" picked out of a grab bag.  It's the floral pattern on the far left.  I pieced together an assortment of fabrics and then turned it into a pouch using this tutorial: Noodle Head Blog

Color Inspiration - Electric Turquoise & Mauve

I used this lovely website to create a palette from my photo, Palette Builder.

Modern Kaleidoscope Quilt

This quilt was made using a technique found in the book Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts by Reynolds, available here at Amazon. The hexagons are made up entirely of this fabric by Amy Butler.
