Charity Break

Hmmm actual knitting progress seems to have halted while I wrap up a few charity obligations- 2 Western Canadian Oddball Baby Blankets showed up this week and I had to get them out the door.  Both are very colorful!

This Scrap-tastic Blanket is turning out quite nicely.  The only downside was that I had a million ends to weave in!


When Rainbow Bright showed up a few days later, I couldn't help myself and added in a rainbow to keep the colors flying.


Since I was on a charity kick anyway- I finished up hat #15.  There's at LEAST 4 more hats in the ball- at LEAST.  Yikes there's a lot of hats here!!


This means that progress on the socks and the blankets hasn't really happened yet.  Hopefully this week I can get those projects finished up and out the door!  I can't wait until I can start brainstorming about a big fall project to sink my teeth into!

Warm Distractions

OH yeah...HI!  I was so busy enjoying the nicest summer I can ever remember that I forgot about the blog.  The weather this summer has been dry and hot and just lovely.  With weather like this it's really hard to stay inside and sit still.  (And knit)


There is some knitting that has occurred, BUT, it's at a much slower pace than I had originally planned.

The blanket is moving along and looking quite lovely.


I think that I've decided to do 3 more sections after this, there should be enough yarn.  It feels really good to get through the scraps and whittle away at the leftover pile.

Also seeing some progress, the second sock in the Maui socks!  A 5 hour (childless) flight to Cabos meant that I had a lot of knitting time to take advantage of!

It's nice to get something done on this vacation other than just burning to a crisp!  I'm hoping that I can finish these projects up by the end of this month so I can begin our fall with something a little more "fall-ish".  I'm thinking sweater .....
