WIP Wednesday: Feeling Red

As I looked into my WIP bag this week, I noticed something... I think I might be feeling a bit red. First up is a new set of stockinette self-stripey socks using Cherry Tree Hill in the colorway Black Cherry. The photo is via my new photobox setup my SO gave me for my birthday. Isn't he wonderful?

Next up is my Adeilse. She is growing slowing but steadily and is about 4 inches below the arm now. By the time I finish this one, the summer will probably be in full swing here in Texas. It was already 85 and humid this past weekend. She'll be nice in the fall though. 

Also in the picture is my new cake bag. Isn't it adorable? My brother bought it for me as a birthday gift at the DFW fiberfest. If you come back tomorrow, I'll show you all the great other goodies I got there. (Hint: It'll be soft and wonderful!)

Oh, and one more piece of news! I got a GREAT deal on a sewing machine that I've been eyeing for a while. I'm going to learn to sew! Oh, the project bags I could make....

Oh, and don't forget to visit Tami's Amis for more WIP Wednesday!


  1. You do seem to be feeling the red at the moment - funny, my knitting always seems to go in colour phases too (everything at the moment seems to be grey!)

    Love the project bag, and I can see many more in your future with your new sewing machine. Have fun!

  2. Fantastic! I'm excited for you about the sewing machine. I keep looking at gorgeous fabric online, and I'm really tempted to try to learn to quilt. Keep us posted!

  3. Ooh, red! Love it, especially the way your socks are striping up. Also very excited for you and your new sewing machine. I've been secretly wanting to learn for a while now, so will be watching your progress! Enjoy!

  4. OOOOOOOO!!! YAY for learning to sew! I hope you fall head over heals in love with it!

    1. So jealous of your lightbox setup---the photos look great, as does that black cherry sock yarn, mmm. Black and red are a favourite of mine. :)

      And good luck with the sewing! Learning to sew (for real, as opposed to the half-assed way I sometimes do it now...) is definitely on my crafty to-do list.

  5. I love your lightbox! I've been thinking about making one because it's so hard to get good photos when I keep taking them at bed time :) Good luck with your sewing machine - I've had mine a couple of years but I've only just started working with it properly and I'm really enjoying it! I love the black cherry socks!

  6. Mmmmm... I love that Black Cherry and it looks great with your red Signature needles!

  7. Very nice sewing machine! Singers are great - they just keep going and going and going. I have one that's about 20 years old that still works without any issues :)

  8. love those socks!!

    have fun with the sewing!!

  9. Isn't it funny how we gravitate to certain colors at different times. I've been in a blue mood lately. Your projects are coming along nicely.


I would love to hear what you think!
