I haven't had my usual knitting time with school and all, but I ended up hammering through a few projects. I finished the POW shawl redeux after Missy the wonderdog ate the first one. And to think I used to complain that I didn't have the excuse that the dog ate my homework...
I also finished the Monkey socks previously blogged about. Thanks Aimee, for the great birthday yarn. And I made Charade socks with some yarn I got from my Sockapalooza 4 pal. It's fun yarn to work with I like the way it turned out. I am usually not a pink person but I like these socks a lot.
Finally I made a Clapotis out of Lanas Puras Fingering weight yarn. Feels like buttah! So soft, so smooth, so warm for the CO winter. I can't wait. I know so many people who don't want summer to end but I love the cooler weather. I am sad to say that I won't have a new hand knit sweater for fall, but that's okay. Nursing school wins out this year. This may be all the knitting I successfully complete for quite a while! We have an incredibly busy fall ahead of us.
Happy Fall Knitting and Happy Birthday Aimee!
Sorry for the crap photos. I had okay light and then right as I took the 2nd picture the sun went behind a cloud and the room got very dark. I don't have time or energy to seek out a better spot so this is what I have to live with. Someday I will get better.
