Never-Ending Sock

Our life is finally getting back to normal, sort of. The hubby got a rental yesterday since the insurance company decided that the other driver was at fault. They gave him a newer Chevy Silverado. Nice truck!! I would love to keep it, yeah right. They also gave him an offer on his car that was not far off from what we wanted, not bad. We still have some talking to do and now that we know a range we can really start looking for cars. We have a few in mind that have been sitting lots for over a month, since the last time we were looking. They are overpriced but we hope that they will want to get them off the lot and take cash.

I *finally* finished the never-ending Anastasia sock.

I am finally to the point in my knitting that my socks are fitting me very well. It took me a while to figure that out. I love the way this sock fits and looks. Still, I don’t think that is enough motivation to make me cast on for the second sock right away. Maybe...

I did pull out the sewing machine over the weekend too. I wanted to make a few little bags. I saw the picture that Valerie posted and loved the Box Bag tutorial from Drago[knit]fly. I have never sewn a zipper in before and failed miserably. I will try again though as soon as I get back in there. I definitely think this was an operator error the tutorial is great.

I got some great fabric at Joann’s a couple of weeks ago. I wanted something more like spring and I think I got it. I love how bright this bag is.

That’s all I have for now, but I think I will have some time tonight to cast on for a sock. :-)

The bag is very cute and I love the sock. The dreaded purple yarn finally found the right match!

Cute bag and the sock looks FABULOUS!

Glad to hear that the car issue seems to be working in your favor!

hooray for a finished sock!!! It really was a perfect match for the misbehaving purple yarn. See, I'd be tempted to cast on and finish the second one immediately, just to show it who's the boss.

I love that bag, too! It's so bright and summery. I did a little sewing today. It was more of a getting reacquainted with the sewing machine, so the end result wasn't all that great, but it'll do.

Good luck on the car buying. I guess it's going as well for you as possible, given the circumstances of why you're car shopping.

Cute sock. I have that tutorial and the bags in various stages of completion. Hopefully you can find the car of your dreams. Too bad about the accident. Glad your husband came out of it intact. That's something to be thankful for!

I'm glad to hear the car issue is close to being resolved. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can get the car your looking at for the price you want.

I really like your purple sock and the bag is adorable. I'm one of those poeple who feel you can never have enough bags.
