I almost titled this post “Who Woulda Thunk?” but it was killing me to use that bad of grammar in the title.  I know, I’m strange that way.  I’m really not sure that “Go Figure” is any better, but at least it’s not using made up words.

I digress.  Who would have known that finishing items would be so much fun?  In the last 2 days I have finished 2 projects!  I’m about to block each of them…. well I will as soon as I’ve finished this and have cleared off a flat surface that I can block on top of.  Both shawls will be donated to silent auctions in the area.  I’m excited to take pictures as I think they both turned out great.

 

A 1st Day of School picture to distract you from the lack of knitting photos.

 

I’m moving on to finish one of my sweaters that got abandoned when the Olympics started.  I just have some ribbing on the front and on the sleeves to do. I have a February Baby Sweater for Addie that I would like to finish before the end of the month.

I’m also thinking of another knit a long for October, the Houdini Socks.  I love the idea of knitting the footprint first.  I’m not sure that I’m crazy about the leg pattern on this particular sock, but I think I’d just swap out for ribbing.  Would you want to join in the knit a long?

Another fun picture. They’re so excited to see all their friends again!

I also need to figure out a October sweater.  I’m thinking something simple and maybe small.  I’ve got 1,000 yards of bright red sport weight or 540 yards of a pink dk weight that I could use that are calling out to me.  I think it’s indicative of my busyness that I cannot make a decision.
