Another Snowy Day

We went for our walk this morning. Dolly looks as excited as I am about the snow. Three weeks into winter weather, and we are not amused. I figure I have now earned some play time.

I have a bunch of projects on the go.

I have finished piecing the pockets for my Backgammon Bag.

I started out making them the same, then decided that since they meet at the bottom seam, they needed to be mirror images.

Doesn't that look better? I am liking the colour combination. Just enough purple to make a statement!

My Advent Scarf had a hiatus while I did some Christmas presents. I have made a bit more progress. I am up to Day 10 now.

I also seem to have a sock problem.
I have started a pretty lace sock, for a summer bride.

Then I got a notice from Craftsy about their 2016 Sock Knit along, hosted by Lucy Neatby. It was free, and I have lots of sock yarn, so I started the January sock for that one, too.

Meanwhile, the church is hosting a bazaar, along with the local mosque, to benefit Syrian refugees. They are looking for some handmade items, so I thought teabag wallets would be just the thing.
I made these back in 2013, and gave them to friends as gifts. I used the pattern from here. I have shown mine to 3 friends, and sold 3 already. Of course, they all had specific fabric requests. I figure a fair price is $5. My sweetie says that is a bit low, and while I may agree, I figure I want them to sell, not get left.


  1. You've been busy! Make a teabag wallet for me, please! You choose the fabrics. We can exchange the wallet and cash when we meet next, if that's OK?

  2. You have been keeping busy, for sure! Enjoy that snow, Dolly and could be living here with us in a heatwave, you know.

  3. Yes, mirror image is better. The pockets look great.

    Your knitting is beautiful, Kate.

    The tea bag wallets are adorable.

    Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!

  4. Hi,
    Love the quilt, beautiful. The socks look
    so comfy. Have a great day!

  5. Yep, the mirror image looks better. Love those fabrics together. Scarf and socks are awesome as are the tea wallets. I bet you could get more for them; $5 seems a tad low for such nice work. ;)

  6. Hello Dolly!

    Glad to see you, hopefully we will see you soon, to scratch behind your ears and see Doug to. How is the bundles of fluuf, are they staying out of the yarn? Those socks are beautiful!

  7. Love the knitting! Those socks are adorable. Tea wallet? Never heard of them but now I need one!!

  8. All of your projects are lovely. I'd ask at least $7. for the tea wallets, that's what I ask.

    oh you had to mention that sock class . I went and signed up as I want to learn a different heel technique and try toe up. I hate grafting, am horrible at it. arg. I do have lots of sock yarn waiting though.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
