White Socks finished

Over the last few days I sewed the 10 blocks that I had decided I needed to add when I first laid out the 70 existing blocks and sewed the top together. The pattern is Jewel Box and you can see that I once again chose to have two color scrappy quilt. This is one of my favorite types of quilt. I am thinking about adding a border, but the quilt already is 160x200 cm and I think just a red binding might be enoug.





I finished my white socks that were originally intended for the knit the classics for January. Though I had planned to use a simple eylet pattern, I could not resist when I found Gothic Lattice in one of Barbara Walker's Treasuries. After all Woman in White is a gothic novel. I am not sure if I would do the toe part like this again, but it's not bad enough for me to redo it. The socks are Regia Silk in white and very soft.

Your socks AND red/white quilt top are beautiful!!
I love finding a knitter/quilter! I do both, but have been pulled into the knitting hole and can't get out! I have a beautiful scrappy quilt that just needs to be quilted and bound....maybe I need to make a path to the sewing machine....
You do very nice work!

What a beautiful quilt. I get the blocks done and then never put them together. I love your socks too.

I love those interlocking cables on your socks. Your quilt top is amazing too! My grandmother is a great quilter, but I didn't inherit her eye for color. Or her attention to detail.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really enjoyed knitting Green Gable. I'm sure I'll knit it again.
