RSC14 and On The Needles

It's been busy around our house these last couple of weeks, but I did squeeze in time to finish this month's yellow Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

Here are all the month's that are completed so far.  You will notice that one month is missing. That would have been the Green May block.  Guess I'd better hurry to get it done before the end of June so I can say I'm all caught up on one of my projects, huh?

On the knitting front, I am still working on and off (mostly off) my  HT socks.  This second one of the pair is giving me fits.  Seems like I'm making more mistakes than I did on the first sock of this pattern. Not sure why, but you would think the second sock of a pair would be a piece of cake. Must be I'm not staying focused and my mind is wondering, thinking about things I SHOULD be doing instead of knitting!.   I will be so glad when it's done and I can start something new.

I'm linking up with So Scrappy and On The Needles (even though I'm tardy for Friday's link).  Go on over and check out what been happening with other bloggers.

On The Needles Catch Up for June 6, 2014

The faster I go the farther behind I get is my motto these days.  It seems as if I cannot get a post done on the day it's due, but at least this shows I am working toward finishing some my projects.

Here is what's on my needles this week.  First, I finished one of the House Targaryen socks and have started the 2nd one.
I also started another Faux Mobius cowl in a darker color gradation that will go with nicely with fall colors.

Go to Patchwork Times to see more knitting inspirations.

Stash Report Week 22 and a Finish

There was a little change in my stash report from last week.  I made and sewed on a binding for this Quilts of Valor quilt that was pieced by Linda H from orphan blocks that she collected.  Only used a half yard of fabric, but it all counts and is now out of my stash.

Used this Week:  .5 yard
Used year to Date: 16.78 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date:  15.75 yards
I'm only ahead by 1.03 yards for this year, but at least I'm not in the red.

Stop by Patchwork Times to see what others have done this week.
