Angel #9 Beauty

Here is the angel I finished tonight. Only 3 more to go now and the whole piece is complete.

Here is a picture of the entire thing so far....


Next week I can hopefully do a bit of knitting, I bought some wool for a scarf, and I am also going to try a pair of socks....it is the "thing" to make at the moment! :) I have never worked on 4 needles before....the challenge intrigues me!

Good luck with the socks. They are very addictive to make. I made my first pair last year and found this step-by-step tutorial to be a fantastic help

WOW, I'm amazed that you have time for so many hobbies. I used to knit and cross stitch quite a bit but put it aside with quilting. I guess you can say that hand applique replaced those two hobbies. Keep well!

I see you have been busy making lots of the Easy quilts. I think that is such a great pattern. I am hoping to make a few myself. It looks like a few years in Germany will be a fun adventure. Nice to learn a second language and see other cultures, for the children.

The angels are soooo cute, good luck with getting them finished. I'm going to try knitting socks at a class I signed up for...we'll see how it goes.

That's a lovely cross-stitch. Good luck with the socks, I haven't tried that yet ....

oooooh I love knitting socks Nicole - once you do one (pair) you just wont be able to stop yourself :) They are small, don't take long to complete and you can whip yourself up some really sumptious ones depending on your fibre! AND I bet you have a lovely lot to choose from in Europe! First one is tricky but after that - you will just power through!

Good luck :)

You cross stitches look fantastic, what do you plan to do with them when you have finished all of them. Last year I knitted boot socks for 12month old grandson, thats the extent of my foray into knitting socks. What's an Easy quilt?

is there a craft you don't do? Wow I can't cross stitch so I really admire your skills
