I haven't done much knitting all summer though, and I think the one-pair-a-month challenge has gone by the wayside. I have two different socks on the needles right now, but I've had so many other more pressing things to do that I've only knit a few rows here and there. In another week or so, I expect things will get back to a slower pace, and I hope to get back to my knitting. I have a new scarf and a sweater I want to start, but not until I get those socks done!
I finished my raffle quilt last Thursday and sent it in to work with my husband the day after. Their raffle was supposed to be held yesterday, so maybe I'll hear how they made out later this week.
I was happy how it turned out; and I really like it, enough to want to make another some time. The quilt, called Ladder of Success, was designed by Judy Martin and appeared in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker magazine. It finishes to 72-1/2" x 92-1/2", so it's at least a twin size, maybe a double, unless you have one of those thick mattresses. I now have to make quilts for my queen-sized bed about 95" x 95" to accommodate a thick mattress plus a 2" topper. I practically have to have a step stool to get up into the bed.
