Laurie, I went back to see what my favorite YouTube teacher had to say about toe up socks and guess what?  You do lose a stitch using the crocheted on cast on.  Also, when you reclaim the stitches they always end up between the stitches already on the needle.  We were both right!  One lady says she always casts on one extra stitch with the crochet cast on so she'll have enough, then once she begins knitting she knits two together to decrease to the correct amount.

Laurie, I just looked at all your photos again and you have some really beautiful quilts. My brother drove a logging truck until he died from a heart attack in '89 and he was 10 days shy of turning 47. My DH and I would take a vacation with the kids and go where he lived and would get to ride in his truck. It was a great time for us to be together and I loved it. I miss him so much and our special time together. So, I can see why you love driving a truck. Stay safe and keep up the good quilting. AND, enjoy your new socks.

I'm glad your doing well, and making quilts.  I understand about not going out yet.  William needs you nearby and you would always be concerned about him while you were gone. I'm so glad your both getting better. Today I'm trying to catch up on some alterations. I want to start some Christmas gifts and make two or three purses. I just picked up a new purse pattern in Walmart for a purse with ruffles.  My granddaughter told me awhile ago she seen a purse with ruffles and would like to have one. She has a birthday next month so think I will make it for her bday.  I always send Bud's sister one for Christmas so must get started on them.  Enjoy your quilting.

Laurie, thank you for that comment. You never know who you are encouraging...you and your hubby have gone through such a hardship...but, did it with strength and hard work. You have inspired many, who whine over a hang nail.It's good to hear you're going to be trucking soon, you must have missed that so much. Be Careful!!!

So glad you are keeping busy. I'm sure it still gets old being in the hospital.  Do you like to read?  I'm sure watching TV gets old, especially if that's not something you do on a regular basis - and being an OTR driver, I'm sure you didn't watch a lot of TV!  :D  

We're getting ready for branding (22nd) and for DD's wedding (23rd).  We're shipping steers the week after (sometime between the 27th & 30th).  It is getting a little crazy, but I feel like my deep housecleaning is done and I'm ready for whatever.  Still need to get my meals planned out and grocery list made.  I'll be working on food prep next week.  

Blessings!  I think of you often and look forward to your updates.

Glad to hear of your progress. It has been such a long haul already for you both. Pray that you continue to recover and hope you can start to get back to some piecing. Wish I were closer and could lend a hand. Have been taking care of DH as he is recovering from knee replacement surgery. I cannot begin to imagine what you're going through. Just know that you are loved and thought of and lifted up in prayer. God is faithful and will see us through. Feel free to send me an e-mail any time. My address is on my page.

I'm glad you and hubby are making progress in your recovery. 8-10 weeks seems like such a long time to be able to start therapy but it takes time to get back on your feet after such trauma to the body. I will continue to pray for you both and look forward to each email of progress.

Thank you very much Laurie, for your wonderful comment on my art quilt Purple Shades. I really appreciate that.  It is one of my favorites and I am glad you like it.

Laurie I thank you for the comment on my "Baby Genius" top.  I haven't finished the quilting yet, as a matter of fact, I haven't started it yet but I did pick out the backing and believe me when I say I am scared to start it.  I picked out some fleece that has some frogs on it and it it a lite blue and lime green colorway.  I think it is going to be fantastic, but, I am afraid it might stretch while I quilt it.  I will get it done eventually. 

I hope you and William are still improving with each new day.  I put ya'll on the Prayer Warriors list at church.  I appreciate the updates that you have been giving us.  Continue to improve and God bless you both.

Thanks for your comment on my "Precious Jewels" quilt! I don't usually follow the colours on a pattern, but these looked so right together!

Sorry to hear of your accident! Hope things are starting to improve and you will be ready to do handwork again. I love your quilts...the fabric with the bold squares is fabulous for a SNW! The brighter, the better!

I'll keep praying for your continued recovery and William's too.  Take care - Aida

Thank you Laurie, she is precious!!! How are you doing? Haven't heard from you in a long time!!

Thank you, Laurie, for your wonderful kind words. Yes, sometimes choosing fabric can be a task, especially when nobody (including on the Internet) has the exact color and texture that you want. But I love every minute of it.

Perhaps soon you will be seeing the finished portraits that some of my fellow members of the art quilt group are producing in my class.

Keep stitching!

Marilyn

Hi Laurie... I don't know what he's going to be driving - he's in training right now before getting his own truck (company owned) and route.
