Flutterby Flimsy!!

This past week was a blur - I traveled to Salt Lake City for a conference while operating in a DayQuil and NyQuil induced haze.  Storm related delays in connecting cities gave me time to complete my third POCC sock, finally giving me a matching pair,
They are the same size!  Yay!  I had already made two of these socks, but they were completely different sizes because I did the gusset wrong on Sock #2.  That's what you get when you work out of your crowded head instead of from a pattern, I guess.

but the highlight of my week was finishing my Flutterby flimsy!  I love it! 
Based on pattern by Jen Kingwell, final size 86.5" x 98.5"

It is on its way to a long arm quilter and then off to join other donated items in a silent auction to benefit Project Horizon, an organization that assists victims of domestic abuse.

It is letter writing time for me as a College Advisor, and I am woefully behind.  I'm afraid I won't have much time for sewing in the coming month, but I'm going to do my best to find moments here and there to create.

I'm linking up with Monday Making and Oh Scrap!

Hope you're feeling better! It isn't fun to have to try to concentrate when your head is stuffed (and when you're out of town, too). The Flutterby design is wonderful!

I was also at a conference for work this week, which gave me time to EPP. I so love to be away and have some me time, even if it is for work.

AARRGG... the Quil haze. I'm sorry. I hope you are feeling better. You are very patient to make a third sock. They are cute. The Flutterby quilt has lots of movement and the colors are just right.

I admire anyone who can knit socks--they fascinate me!
