I've been on travel all week for work--you know what that means--lots of quality knitting time!
I clicked away on the Fiesta Feet socks all week. Yesterday morning I even had time to sit out along Long Beach CA harbor and knit. I tried to get the Queen Mary in the pic, but couldn't get it all in:
So here is where I am now, after 11+ hours of travel knitting:
What is on your needles?

I also unstitched the flower in the pot block--I sewed my petals too close together. Maybe it will be back on the design wall next week.
I worked on the crochet/embroidery block while enroute to the GSQA Quilt Show in Slidell, LA on Saturday. I am almost finished with that, but I need the "perfect" piece of fabric to applique one part and I am hoping the quilt shop will have it. I went through my stash and I either used it all or didn't have what I am looking for. It is one of those silvery-fossil fern tone on tone fabrics. I will have to run by the quilt shop tomorrow.
I am really enjoying the Sampler so far. I also encouraged my guild friends to post their progress on our guild facebook page.

So I put in a life line and did it! I told myself I would try it once, if it didn't work I would just resort to my favorite heel (fish lips kiss heel) and start knitting the foot pattern again.
It actually worked on the first try, but I may have an extra row in there, I'm not sure and I'm not going to fret about it. I've knitted 6-8 rows into the gusset, and next is some color work. Hopefully I can find some quiet time to work on it this weekend.
What's on your needles?
And Judy L---I have a pile of laundry too!!

I am almost intimidated to start working on the next step because I'm worried I will do it wrong. Again, I need to insert a life line. I hate when I develop that mindset--avoid working on a project for some reason, but then I don't want to work on anything else because I think I should be working on the project I don't want to work on. If I can't get past it this weekend I may pick up something else for a bit.
Have a great weekend!!

Last night I realized I had a problem---I think I knitted the last row in the variegated color instead of the main color, so I tinked the cable row (ugh!) and re-knit. I hope I did that right. I just wish I had more time to knit!
Check out Judy L's Patchwork Times to see what is on everyone's needles!

Not much progress this week. I only finished one block:
