I can’t believe that the month of July is already over. It went by faster then I could keep up. In reality, I probably could have kept up a little better, but last week my Hubby and I decided that we needed to “vacation” on our balcony. Once I was home from my internship and my school work was done we decamped to the balcony for dinner and drinks and usually stayed there until after dark. We ignored the computer and our phones and spent a lot of time talking about going on a real vacation again. It was lovely and I have this feeling it may happen again.
But, I did accomplish two things from my YOP wish list for July.
First, I finished my Mama Vertebrae.
I’ll post more pictures later this week. Just wanted to give you a little sneak peek.
But it is clearly finished and with that accomplishment I managed the second goal of having five skeins out of my stash. (The sweater only took four, but I gave the last skein to my BFF so she can add it to her 5 skeins of Turtle Slippers). Admittedly I ended up inheriting 3 skeins from another knitter so I am in reality only 2 skeins closer to being organized. What can you do? How would I call myself a knitter if I turned down three free skeins of beautiful yarn that needed a new home? That would make me a pretty crummy knitter, and a terrible friend don’t you think?
The other knitting that seems to have taken over is Vivid. I love knitting these squares. I’m up to eight and finished with the white yarn, The remainder of the yarn has been tossed into the pile for the EBI so it’s win/win!
I would like to say that I have a plan for the rest of the month. But, I really kind of don’t. I am really hoping to finish the socks for my dad and I’m fairly certain that the blanket will get more love. Beyond that, I’m not sure where the month will take me.
My goal: 5 skeins out/month
August 4/0 (I de-stashed 3 skeins this morning! Yay – yummy yarn finding a new home! Last skein is in the blanket)!
