IHSW check-in

I spent the weekend working on 2 cross stitch projects and one knitting project:

1.) Autumn Mandala by Ink Circles: starting on Friday I had about 200 stitches and this is my progress now.

2.) I Finished a Christmas ornament. It is the Summer House Stitche Works design from the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue.

One of my goals for 2014 was to learn how to knit socks. The picture below shows my first attempt.

 Hopefully the rest of the sock goes well.

The goal for this week is to finish the Mandala and with the weather trending towards the freezing, I think it is possible. I would also like to finish sewing the binding on the Table runner I am quilting for my mom.

Happy stitching everyone!

So brave to learn how to knit socks! There are so many gorgeous sock designs, but brr, I don't know how.
So good luck with that. Let us know how it goes, it might give me the courage to try myself. :)
Love the mandala and ornament.
