  6. Ordered Vintage Hues childs jumper FINISHED!!!
  7. Buttons wool socks for Harley (rip back gonna do a different pattern)
  8. A Star Is Born girls jumper (finished the back, so about 1/4 way there)

hokies thats all the piccies caught up for you all. so what do you think? i am actually back to enjoying knitting again. and damn glad to have those socks finished!! fully knitted on the sly he had NO idea! tell you what..as much as i love the colour it was a devil to knit in artificial light at night!! and the brand (hotsocks) tangled terribly with center pull balls!!

i am still trying to work out where this whole year has gone..i cant believe its end of September already!! time to pull out the serious Chrissie knitting..and panic that i wont get it done..well not this year thank you!! hitting it hard now so i DONT have another year like the past several! i have also been buying Chrissie pressies to keep on top of them.

ok now i have bored you with a huge long post. lets hope i post again before a month is almost up..i hate how blogger is still being a pain..and i still cant find my digi so having to use phone and transfer across..thank goodness i have a good camera on my phone!!!

happy knitting all!!

    All your knitting looks great. Has your stash of Vintage Hues reduced a lot yet. I cannot believe it is nearly Christmas already. Since June I think the year has just flown by.

    Adam is a lucky boy getting such nice socks for his birthday. Is he going to make you a pair for your birthday?

    Stop being so dang productive woman!! How're we s'posed to keep up???
    But seriously, all those kiddie jumpers are so cute that were it not for the fact that summer is coming (and we are even going to the warmer places for a while over Xmas) and that my children automatically start a growth spurt when I cast something on for them, I would be sitting here with brand new stitches for a small person item on the table in front of this computer. But I am strong. Ish.
    you do fabulous work.
