Socks and more

I finally finished another pair of socks. Like Fillyonk I enjoy plain socks to relax and these were very relaxing. Simple ribbing made for nice socks and the color is a bit more purply in real life.

This is the progress I have made on my tree. As I am stitching only on this it is now a WIP rather than an UFO once more. As I was home sick Thursday and Friday the tree grew more than expected between bouts of feeling horrible. I am enjoying seeing it grow little by little. Unfortunatelly this makes me look at all my cross stitch magazines and that makes me want to start a whole bunch of new things. So far I just started a little free kit of Popcorn. Slow stitching prevents me from making much progress, but I am having fun.

In the latest edition of World of Cross Stitch was an article on Biscornu, something we just recently discussed on Stitching Fingers. I guess I will have to give it a try.

Hi Karin, I see no reason why you should not continue calling this project a UFO. OK, it is now a WIP but that's what the challenge is all about, isn't it - to turn our UFOs into WIPs!
Sorry to hear you were sick - hope you are feeling better now. I had a cold last week which kept me inside most of the week, but it's gone now.
LOL to read about you going through your cross stitch magazines and finding new stuff you want to do - oh YES, I can relate to that!!
