Posts Tagged ‘Tidal Wave Socks’

There is a section on Xanga that let’s me know where visitors to my blog are from, and what they are looking at.  Also how they found my blog.  Lately, most visitors come from google searches for?  — Crown Royal Bag Quilts!  Ever since I posted pics of a quilt made from Crown Royal bags, I’ve had visitors from all over the world.  Australia, China, Great Britain, Peru, and Romania, to name just a few, also from all over the United States.  There must be an awful lot of Crown Royal drinkers out there wondering what to do with those little purple bags.

Haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sewing room.  Trying to catch up on projects and brainstorming for some new ones.  Can’t post pics yet of some of the projects, but hopefully it won’t be long before I can.  Finally finished knitting the boring stockinette foot of the second Tidal Wave sock, so those are done.  Then I finished the first and cast on for the second of the September Woods socks

Other than grocery shopping and attending a funeral, I haven’t left the house in quite a while.  Starting to go a little stir crazy.  So this afternoon I’m venturing out to the quilt shop and bookstore, trying to ignore the siren call of the yarn shop, but you never know.

Tuesday we went to the OKC Museum of Art.  There were 2 exhibits that we especially went to see.  Napoleon – An Intimate Portrait and the Dale Chihuly Exhibition.  They were both fascinating.  There were some garments on display in the Napoleon exhibit. I knew that people were smaller in stature back then, but seeing a sleeve from one of his jackets really brought it home.  The sleeve looked as though it would fit a child. My favorite exhibit was the Chihuly glass.  The rooms where the glass is displayed are dark and the lighting makes the glass come alive.  I tried to take pictures but they didn’t come out very well.  I had to use the flash in order to get a clear picture and then it washed out the color and deadened the glass.  The pictures I took without the flash are warmer and more closely resemble the glass, but are blurry because I couldn’t hold the camera still long enough.

One of my favorites was the hallway with the colored glass displayed over a clear ceiling.  Caught Kerry taking a picture of the ceiling.  This is just a small portion of the hallway.  For a larger view, be sure to click on the picture below.

Since we were already downtown, we went to Bricktown for lunch.  Ate at Zio’s and then checked out the canal.  There aren’t any crowds when you visit Bricktown on a weekday.

For knitting content, how about a picture of my progress on the Tidal Wave socks?  I’ve turned the heel and started the gusset decreases.

I am happy to announce, that the Chain Link socks are finished.  It’s taken almost 4 months and I’m sure you were getting tired of hearing about them.  I don’t know how I managed it, but they are identical and I wasn’t really trying.

Now I can work full time on the Tidal Wave socks.  Pictures coming soon.
