Where has the time gone?

Again, yet another month+ since my last post. It's funny. I know there aren't many people who look my way on the 'net, yet I really enjoy getting on here and sharing my stuff. Just need to try to do it a little more often.

So, what has the summer held for me and my family? Let's see...


Well, I'd hoped to share a couple photos of our summer fun, yet Flickr hasn't been able to pull my assorted funny family fun photos off my camera. Fancy that. Guess I'll have to stick with the knitting. I finished 3 bags:


Rutabaga Complete (1)-JRoKnits #2

and 2 Malika's. (this one is a tribute to McDonald's)

JRoKnits #4 - Malika #2

and this was the first one. I made it longer than the pattern suggested because I didn't trust that it would be big enough as is. I could carry my kindergartner around in this bag if I wanted to.

I'm making June is for Jag for my mom's birthday out of Dream in Color Classy in Good Luck Jade. The pattern is a perfect fit for the perfect yarn. Pretty, huh?

Mom's June

Because I'm not positive this is the exact color Mom is looking for, I'm also making the Cashmere Ruffles Scarf from Closely Knit using Malabrigo Silky Merino DK in green/gray. No photo yet, but it's oh so yummy.

I sewed buttons on 28thirty,

blasted through the Canopy Cardigan from Knitscene,

a pair of mitts (Laura's Ribbed Mitts by Carrie Barraco, free Ravelry pattern),
Laura's Ribbed Mitts (2)

and several hats (Santa Cruz, Foliage, Nezumi, Maple Seed).

I had an itch to do some stash busting. Can you tell? I'd hit you with more FO's but they aren't as recently done so I'll leave those for another day. Have a good one!

You have finished so many things. I love the bags, and all the hats too. Your sweaters look gorgeous. You must have used up quite a lot of yarn out of your stash too which is always great.
