August Wrap Up

Published by at 3:26 pm under monthly wrap-up

August was a slow month. I had lots of things on the needles, and then a ridiculous heat wave hit and all I wanted to do was move to the Yukon. (Summer is colder in the Yukon; you can still knit.) Since I am writing this post instead, you may safely assume I am still here.

SWALLOWTAIL SHAWL

FLOWER POWER SOCKS

Story of the socks is here.

And now we’re into September. I have a sweater on the needles, and some socks that are so beautiful I can hardly stand it, and there’s yarn coming my way that will be turned into Christmas presents. And, I am making a valiant effort at keeping my excitement over the upcoming fiber festival season down to manageable levels. It might not be an entirely successful effort, but it’s an attempt. I think that should absolutely count, right?
