Gee, October is here already! We are still having summer weather though — we had a few cool fall-like days and then back to the 90s.
Current knitting projects include 8 rows to go on the denim WoolEase baby blanket I started for Ryan right before his birth. I had put it away for summer and got it out a couple of weeks ago to finish. I have a garter stitch scarf on US 15 needles — using two skeins of alpaca boucle — brown and khaki. A Little Leaf Scarf, an easy lace pattern, using KnitPicks Shimmer in the Turquoise Splendor colorway. I restarted this scarf FOUR times and this time I am finally happy with it. I have close to 20 repeats done out of 64. I have two baby sweaters to sew up and finish — the Devan pieces have been blocked and I will pick those up on Saturday. And I have knit a V neck cardigan in a size 3-6 months that is ready to sew up and finish. I would like to get those done in the next week or so. I am experiencing the cravings to start knitting another pair of socks, but I want to get these baby sweaters done first!
I also purchased Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in a baby blue colorway for a shawl collar cardigan for baby Ryan. Need to get started on that.
I am scheduled to play two services again on Sunday — which means a three hour practice this evening. No knitting tonight!
I have been giving bass guitar lessons to a middle school boy at my church. His next lesson is Monday, so I need to get all that stuff together over the weekend.
Gotta go — will post more next week and upload some photos!
