I’m back from vacation and rushing around to get ready for the upcoming semester. The kids went back to school today and I’ll admit I was a bit stunned when the bus actually showed up – it doesn’t seem possible that summer is already over. We had a fantastic few months around here and it’s a bit sad to see it end, though the school year always brings exciting new things to look forward to. It’s the pace of summer that I really enjoy, I guess – that and having more time to just hang out with the kids.
In any case, I have a few FOs to show. It’s vacation knitting, mostly, little things that didn’t require too much concentration:
Cashmerino nap mat for Frisky:
Cute washcloth for a friend:
Another cute washcloth, also for friend:
And one WIP: Redo of my son’s socks – hopefully for the last time!
My niece LOVED her felted bag (and the Uglydoll I put inside it.) It was hilarious to see her galloping down the beach on a hot summer’s day in her bikini with this felted wool bag hanging around her neck and the Uglydoll’s head peeking out. Ah, to be 8 again. Also, one of her brothers has decided that if I can make his sister a felted purse, I can certainly make him a felted knapsack. Any pattern suggestions would be most welcome!
So, between now and Christmas I have to apply myself to several pairs of socks, the remaining Breeze, and the ripple afghan. And probably a scarf or two. And maybe a knapsack. Oh, and a baby gift. And I'd like to finish Einstein in the next month or so. That’s the plan, anyway, until I get distracted by something new ;) Or until reality sets in.
And now, my Ravelry update:
