Crafting On - Getting Close

Linking up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams and her Crafting On blog hop!!

I've been a bit quiet on the blog lately, but no worries, I've been keeping my hands busy behind the screen:)

I've mostly been working away at the John Deere baby blanket AND....
Yep, I've learned to turn the heal on my sock!!! The above picture captured the color of the blanket pretty well, but made the sock look purple. The picture below is almost dead on with coloring:)
 All that is left is the foot and toe, and after looking at the instructions for both, I don't think I'll have any problems with it. I'm so excited to have gotten past the heal turn, and after watching a video or two, it really wasn't all that hard!! I can't wait to get this one done and start all over again:)

Hopefully by next week I'll have cast on the next sock and have the baby blanket done and ready to go to the expectant parents!!  Then I'll have to see what I'll work on next;)


  1. Good for you on mastering "turning the heel", Shannon! The blanket is looking good. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love how the baby blanket is looking! the colors go well together. Its funny how purple the sock looks in the first photo! I like the colors in the sock you are knitting. That's good you found a video that showed you how to turn the heel! when I was learning to knit socks people told me it was addicting, and it is very addicting you will get hooked in no time! sounds like you already are. Have a good weekend!

  3. Congratulations! You know how to make a heel now ... I still would love to learn how to knit socks ... maybe one day. The yarn is very pretty, enjoy!
