YOP Update Sept 9th

This week marked my return to work and the end of the summer.  It’s the time of year when my knitting takes a little bit of a hit and I have to remind myself that the part of the reason that I can knit and have a yarn stash is because I work.  But I find that offers little comfort during the week when I am up to my armpits in paper work and crying children.  I did however survive and even managed to finish off Widget’s blanket.

I have also found the last two shawls that I want to knit this year.  One is really a cowl, but it needs a lot of yarn so I’m adding it to the shawl list.  I’ve also figured out what I am going to make with my Topsy purchase for myself and have added Burr to the list.

At some point, hopefully today, I will actually be granted access to my next two classes since that was supposed to happen on Friday and I am still waiting for the access codes to be sent to me.  (You can imagine that I have sent more than one email by now).  So how I’m going to fit all this knitting in is still rather questionable, but I am the eternal optimist and certain I will succeed 😉

Now for the new and improved list.
