Getting there...

A few posts ago I showed you the little socks that I was knitting. They are only for decoration and I am making 25 altogether so that they can be used as an advent calendar this year for my little grandsons.

Here's my progress so far. There are 14 completed. All are made with different coloured worsted weight yarns.

Here's numbers 15 and 16 on needles right now. 

On the quilt front, I have the first border put on.

The outer borders have been cut and once they are sewn on, I will be sewing the backing together and putting the quilt on the frame.

It's Wednesday and so I am linking up with The Needle and Thread Network and also with Esther's blog. There's lots to see at both sites so if you are in the mood for some inspiration, pop on over.

This weekend, the leaves were once again in their glory.

I love this contrast of green and red leaves. I'm glad that the grass is still green too.

I take photos from the car so sometimes things get a bit blurry.

Have a great rest of the week.


  1. You are making great progress on the little socks , they will be ready to hang for advent I am sure . Your quilt is great too!

  2. Your sock cache is growing. I love your quilt, and the copse of trees. That color of pinkish red that they turn is one of my favorites.

  3. The boys are going to love those little socks! I'm pretty sure you won't be making the fabric sort of advent calendar - they're going to want to use these.

  4. Those little socks are soooooo cute! Your little grands are going to love them. Beautiful fall colours too. And your quilt looks great.

  5. I am so happy that you have grandchildren and they are so lucky to have you as a granny! Thanks for being a role model for yet to be granny!

    Bye the way, I'm so glad to have you aboard! Thanks for following me, love to hear your opinion on anything I write.

  6. The socks will be an adorable Advent calendar. The quilt is lovely. It's always nice to see the fall colors.

  7. The leave are so pretty....and your tiny sockies are so cute....

  8. Love all your little socks. I had such trouble making just one.

  9. Hi Dolores,
    I just love the idea of knitting up all those little socks to use as a advent!!! Great way to use up any left over yarn. They look very cool!!
    Cheers, Anita.
