Sewers block

Like writers block but less critical to my income. I know I want to sew, I know what fabric I want to sew with, I just don't know what it wants to be.
I did manage to whip out a pair of sleep shorts for hubby before work on Saturday. They're another pair of Pajama pants by 5 out of 4 patterns ( a free pattern btw!) and they're super easy. The worst part (as with any woven) is the double folding of the hem. Think with the next pair I'm just going to zig zag the edges and say screw it.

In other news, I've finally finished a pair of socks for my dad. These are Gravel Grid Socks, by Jessica Baird. I started them a couple of years ago and just kind of lost momentum (I have a fair few of these projects around). Since it was recently his birthday and he had knee surgery today I figured they needed to get finished. Yarn is Opal Rainforest, colorway Eule Owl (brown owl I think in English). I love the Opal yarns, the stripes never fail to entertain. And they wear like iron to boot.

Well, off to soak the new finished product, and maybe sew some shorts for hubby, maybe.
