I Couldn’t Do It!

I just couldn’t do it!  Today was our guild’s “Quilt Till You Wilt” Saturday, and I just could NOT make myself load up all the stuff I needed to sew.  It was too hot, and I decided I was NOT schlepping the machine, fabric, notions, iron, ironing pad, etc. 

I also could NOT make myself take fabric to cut.  The project I am working on required lots of little pieces and it is scrappy.  Each block is a different pattern so it is very tedious cutting… I tried cutting these types of things at QTW before and I make many mistakes… too many distractions for TR (thinking required) Cutting.

The blog readers selected “Tree Fort” yarn for me to work with next.  I cast one sock on this morning before I left for QTW, and I got the toe completed.  I spent most of the day working on it and HERE is what it looks like now!!


I will finish the heel and then open the instep to make the leg tonight.  I had no idea I could get this much done in one day!!  This is July’s pair of socks so I am way ahead of the game.  Next weekend we will travel so again I will have lots of knitting time.  It would be wonderful if I could finish July’s socks before July even gets here.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.



  1. Wow, great knitting progress. Would you share the sock pattern link with me, if there is one?

  2. I must learn to knit socks...yours looks great. Was glad you stopped by Apron Strings so I could follow you back and catch up with your doings. You are so right...It is too hot for much of anything but trying to keep cool. oxo

  3. I know what you mean. Some weeks I load my car to go sew with the girls and end up not getting anything done. There are times when I've just taken my machine out of the house for some fresh air and didn't sew a stitch! Now when I'm not in the mood to lug all my supplies, I try to bring a project that is in the binding stage to work on while I socialize. Some weeks it's the outing I need more than the sewing time. I'm much more productive (and accurate) at home.

    Love the Tree Fort color. It's really making "snazzy" looking socks!

  4. it's too hot to do ANYthing! Thank the Lord for AC! Socks look great. I still haven't tried Cat's method. Maybe when it cools off!

  5. Sorry I haven't checked in sooner. I love that yarn! And ahead of the game? What's with that!

    I understand exactly what you mean about not wanting to pack up and go....and distractions! Oh I know about distractions. ;)

  6. Checking back in again...was hoping to see more of what you are up to. It's so hot it's hard to get and keep motivated. Was very glad you stopped by Apron Strings. Praising the Lord with you! oxo
