Just Checking In...

How is it the last day of January already?! It is getting lighter and lighter here each day, so I suppose it must be true. It's been pretty quiet here on my blog of late. I haven't been doing much in the quilting department, but the sewing room is almost (re-) organized, so I hope to spend some time there as soon as tomorrow!

I have been finishing up a few Dec/Jan/Feb knitted birthday gifts, though.

I've purchased a few knitted things at local charity shops over the past month in order to try reusing the yarn (I've also picked up a bunch of vintage pillowcases - I'll have to take a photo of them soon). One attempt at rescuing the yarn was a disaster, but these two worked out pretty well:

See that cute brown fabric underneath the brown socks and the recycled yarn? I have a plan for it...

Oh good. You are there. I thought I'd have to prod you again.

I think in this day and aage, recycling is the name of the game.

Lovely knitted items. I wish I knew how to knit. I only crochet. Someday I will learn.:-)
