Where does the time go?

Wow, how on earth did it get to be the 19th of January?  I have been somewhat lax in keeping y'all updated on my fibery doings.  That is not to say I haven't been up to all sorts of crazy things.  We are now more than halfway through the Tanis Fiber Arts KAL, and I have finished up two of my items and have two more on the go.  However, neither of these were the items I planned prior to Jan 1st.

The socks, still made out of Aquarium, aren't the Aquarium pattern any more, but rather the Pomatomus pattern by Cookie A from Knitty and instead of making Itasca out of Blue Label in Frost, a beautiful pattern that I don't think I would really wear that often, I'm saving it for a pair of Cookie A club socks that won't be released until October. Instead I'm started the Imogen Cowl from the luscious TFA  Red Label in Brick that was a birthday gift from my sister.

I have two FOs from the KAL and I will be doing FO pages at some point (hopefully soon), but if you want to see other finished items from the KAL check out THIS POST over on Tanis' blog which has so many pretties.

Oh and not only have I been knitting, I am also now "qualified" on a serger. I helped out my sister Carla get the last few baby quilts done so she could open her new Etsy Shop with lots of stock.

By the end of the weekend I had serged the edges of many of the minky-backed quilts and had some plans to start doing some quilting myself.  I'm getting the materials to make a pieced Moda layer-cake quilt and matching materials to make a cotton/minky adult security blanket.

It's not as though I need more hobbies (or materials to stash), but quilting is an activity that I would like to be able to do, even if I don't make it my life's work.
