Cranky Socks from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been cranking out socks with my new yarn. This pink is so much fun. 
I'm trying some contrast toes. I think the next pair will have pink toes. 
This colorway is a nice change. 
Here is a contrast toe. It still amazes me how I can shape the toe on the machine. 
Now to Kitchener stitch the toes closed and get them ready for gifting.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I dropped off thirteen quilts at the last Annapolis Quilts for Kids meeting. The last of them I will drop off this year. 
These little quilts, pieced by other members of Annapolis Quilts for Kids were part of that drop off. 
This one included minkie type fabrics. I was more pleased with the result than I thought I would be. I hope it makes someone very happy.

Cranky Socks from Becca's Crazy Projects

I recently ordered yarn from CSM Supplies. I like buying from Jamie because she always makes the transaction special. I didn't really need more sock yarn but I wanted more options for holiday sock giving. 
I ordered three new colorways and coordinating solids. I like making contrast toes so you can pair them up using the toe colors. 
First was this fun colorway paired with blue. 
Then this one that I had from a previous order paired with pink. 
I still transfer the live stitches onto a pair of short circular needles and finish each sock by hand using ...

Quilt Backing Fabric from Becca's Crazy Projects

Over the last year or so, I've been piecing quilts primarily from my collection of fabric. This is a great way to use what you have but I reached the point where the quilts couldn't become true quilts because I do not have a collection of backing fabrics. I stuffed these three quilt tops into my Spring Water Designs bag and headed out for backings. They always have a good selection of wide backing fabric. 
First was this kit quilt I made using a kit from one of the big box stores. The blue in the foreground is ...

More Masks from Becca's Crazy Projects

It seems the masks we've been wearing for almost a year are starting to show their age. I wanted some novelty prints so I convinced my husband to take me to the big-box fabric store to pick up some licensed prints. Maybe no one needs a mask with Pok√©mon or Avengers but I wanted some. I also pulled that cut cat print out of my collection. 
These are going to be so much fun!
As usual, I have cut out way to many of these. Oh, well, they are still good to share with friends. 

If you want to ...

Knitting Rainbows from Becca's Crazy Projects

I finally finished my little poncho. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. Maybe after I mend in the ends and block it I will.

Stitch markers: CLOVER Lock Ring Markers 20/pkg  
RuMe Bags Baggie All (Aspen) (to hold my hand-finishing supplies: yarn needle, needle threader, scissors, Kitchener directions, stitch markers, etc)

Monster Socks from Knitterly Things from Becca's Crazy Projects

When I saw that Julia over at Knitterly Things had Monster Sock Yarn Kits available I jumped right over to pick up my own. My well packed kit showed up on Monday so I wanted to share it with you. 
It is such a great pack of fun!
Measuring tape, tiny scissors, some stitch markers, and suckers I really shouldn't be so excited about. And the wonderful self-striping yarns! These are going to become socks this weekend. I can't wait!
