Before that, it's my dad's birthday, Happy Birthday Dad! he's not in great health, every birthday is a bonus. It makes me realise just how short our lives are. When I was a child I thought forty was ancient, and anyone who died at that age had had a full life, ha! Dad is not at all difficult to buy for. Online gift vouchers, sherry and whisky!
Right, now for August.
1 sandshore cardigan - done!
2 Scrapball socks - done!
3 Amulet shawl - FAIL. Abandoned
4 Next TSS shawl - FAIL. I'm biding my time till September
START AND FINISH (ravellenics)
5 Nature's Lace shawl - change of plan, I knitted 400m Sprint instead, so DONE
6 Lace cowl - DONE (though not in time for the end of the games)
7 Fastoche Hat - DONE
8 Fastoche Mitts - DONE though not for the games
9 Square Hipster Hat - DONE
10 Extra! A Speed Challenge dishcloth!
Not bad. A shawl not started (which I could have started last night but chose ot finish the mitts instead) and the abandoned shawl (sob)
For September I wanted a theme. Single Skein is popular, but some of the shawls I want to knit are more than single skein. So I've gone for Shawls.
1 Fastoche Mitts
START AND FINISH
2 TSS shawl - either the third or fourth.
3 A Stitchnerds shawl. There's a couple which popped up over the ravellenics and I may try one of those - either Just Start It or Resting Time
4 Shawl number three, tba
5 Shawl number four, tba
Two completed shawls, two started, which can mean anything. I may also start some socks. Shawls, socks, for September :)
