Hi Again! So as I have completely seemed to skip over August that is just what we are going to do… It was a month that was certainly filled with knitting, a long birthday weekend turned into time spent totally under the weather, and lots of work.
September has been just as full but definitely a different speed. My husband and I got the opportunity to have a date DAY (I know, a whole day!) to celebrate our anniversary (big thanks to my MIL) toddler free which was the perfect way to start off the month. Now while my day job has still be stressful, I have been able to make progress on a few of my ongoing knit projects. My second Penguono has half of a front body, and August saw the start of my Tegna sweater which is more than halfway done. For a very small gauge that also has lace work, this is actually a very quick knit! I am almost done with the front body then all I have is sleeves and any finishing touches. I hope to take the time to write-up a finished object post in the near future.
I slowed down my Tegna progress though as I realized that if I wanted my little one to have her own Rhinebeck sweater next month that I had to get started on one immediately. And I have! In fact I’m just over a week into this and I’m over half way done. I finished up the body this past weekend and all i have to two little sleeves! And in a US6 with its little body, the whole sweater knits up in no time. This is one I definitely want to take some time of to write a FO post as I modified the adult pattern for a 2T. It was such a fascinating process for me this time around and because of this I feel ready to continue taking on new concepts and knitting challenges.
As per usual my lovely Masala shawl is still hanging out, no farther along than I was back in July… My goal to have this finished within a year may not happen so at this point I’ll aim to have it completed before the new year.
And with the end of the year fast approaching I have of course started plotting a Christmas knit list; which truly is a wish list as with my hectic life I may not get to all that I would love to gift away…. BUT one can try. So until next month…
