So I went with socks

I cast on my first pair of socks since last December? maybe? I can't remember.
It is SO hard knitting on size 1's after all those sweaters were done on size 7's.
The pattern is from the latest Knitty, going with some Pink yarn that was frogged from another pair of socks. I forgot I didn't like it because it is not a solid pink...But now, I have no pink sweater to go with the socks!!! ha, I will make that my next project :)

Off to 7th grade registration/picture day today. So close to close

Summer of Sweaters

is almost over! I can't believe that I've made 4 sweaters since May! If you want to see the progress on the latest, Something Red, head on over to my Ravelry page. I have one sleeve and then picking up 180+ stitches to finish it off. I love the yarn and the pattern (so far)

Summer is winding down fast, I have to head into work starting next week to get ready for the school year, I can't believe it is time already. I am so ready for the kids to go back to school :) but not me !!!

Wondering if I should continue with the sweater making, or GASP go back to socks? I still have lots of sock yarn in the stash :) Thank goodness I don't have sweater yarn in the stash, as I bought it, I used it!

Back from banishment

and it really wasn't so bad, until the end, that is.

Weather was nice, low 70's and sunshine, I actually put on the bathing suit top for about an hour. Mornings started out cloudy and overcast, but by noon, everything was clear. We did lots of stuff (going into town) on Saturday, spent lots of money and drank some good cold beverages!! Also ate yummy pizza.

I only read 2 books and 1 magazine, did most of the knitting in the car. Relatives were there, so I couldn't ignore them!

Coming home was a trip, son #2 got hurt in the bush, so we packed up and rushed out at 2pm and drove all.the.way.through, arriving home at 12:30am (2 stops).

But, things are getting back to normal, laundry is done and I suppose I should go grocery shopping!!!

Finished FLS2

Here is the finished sweater, bound off last night after a 6 hour knitting marathon. Wanted to finish it up so I could take it to be blocked tomorrow and then cast on the new project before heading on vacation. I have no idea why it is sideways uugghh to early to fight with computer.

Off to cast on "something red".
