Sock and carpets

Thank you all for the comments you left on my blog over the weekend. Especially on my textile work. It is so interesting to have feedbacks.

The postcards are original ones, I mean I did not copy them from someone else. Instead, I've tried to make them correspond to their recipients, and used different techniques to do so.

A quick reminder about Sharon'b next challenge, Take It Further. Sharon's has made a huge work and listed the blogs/flickr sites of those participating. It is going to be fun, and browsing throught those blogs is already most interesting. You should have a look, really.

Remember the wool my sister gave me last week? This is the first sock I made with it:

Although it is a fine yarn, it is fun to knit. And it came at the right time since all the blogs with photos of knitting made my fingers itch for wool :-). I'll start the second one probably tonight.

And this is a small panel I made for the patchwork shop. As Odile Texier would say, the materials took over and decided how it should be. Even the thread on the border had its own mind. It remembers be of oriental carpets. What do you think?
I wish you all a good week!

I love the colorful sock. I bet they will be warm.

Your small quilt is great. It is very artsy.

Love the socks ! They sure can be an addiction can't they ! I have been doing things with wool as much as quilting lately! Thanks too for your comment about cyber friends. I MOST definitely know some of my cyber friends better than almost all of my neighbors !

I like your panel - beautiful colors. I too have been looking through the blogs on Sharon's list and there is such wonderful work out there!

Your socks look great. I'm trying to make my first ever pair of socks but not getting on very well :( Your panel is gorgeous, the colours are so luxurious.

Actually, Vero, your patchwork pieces makes me think of stained glass. So vivid are the colors!
