Had to Get Some Sewing Done

I have not posted in almost a month! Oh well, I will try to get back to this now and not put it off so long again. Good thought!!
I have been sewing the past 3 days and actually got some projects done that I had to do. I have made a pillow, tablerunner and a purse. I feel so much better having them done. All are for the LQS/LYS I work at. They are samples to show what one can do with all the fabric we have. I still have the Bubble Bag to bind off and make the i-cord for and then felt it. Maybe in the next few days.
I have not ignored knitting either. I have a pair of socks started and it is hard to not just sit and knit them. We are learning to make 2 socks on 1 circular needle. Stacy (aka Scarlet Purls) is learning with me. I am not happy with the way the toes have come out, a bit sloppy on the sides, but they are my first this way and it could be a practice thingy. They are my second pair of socks ever!! I think they will be fine when done. I am using Cool Wool by lana grossa. It feels so nice and is wonderfull to work with.
One of these days I will post some pictures, as soon as I learn how anyway.
