August 2018 Finished Objects

With everything going on I forgot to share August’s finished objects. I can see why I forgot because I only finished one thing.
The sunny yellow Spindrift cardigan I made for my sister. I’ve been working on other things and just finished a test knit for myself that I’ll share soon but September will definitely have more. Was your August as slow as mine knitting wise?


July 2018 Finished Objects

My sister text me the other day alerting me that it was August 1 and it was time for me to start celebrating (my birthday is the 30th). I swore it was still July 31st but here we are and it’s August! So let’s take a look at what I finished in July.
July’s FO’s
I had a good month in July and made progress on other things but I was able to finish off:

  • My secret test knit! It comes out this month so I’ll be able to share the pattern soon. It’s a fun pullover and I knit it in a wild color palette so clearly I love it.
  • I was able to to knit 3 squares for my blanket. Hey, I’ve got a lot more to go but at least I’ve gotten started.
  • And my forgotten Togue Pond Tank was finally off my needles. This one might be my favorite one of all the Togue Pond Tanks I’ve made, seriously. I really do love this metallic yarn.

I am finishing up this week my sister’s sweater! I just have the pockets left so I’ll definitely be sharing that. And I’m hoping to at least separate for sleeves on my latest Guthrie and then start my new test knit next week.

What are you hoping to get accomplished in August?!

6 Months of Knitting

I totally forgot with my June knitting recap to talk about what I’ve done so far with knitting the first half of the year.
6 months of knitting
This is 6 months of knitting folks! So far I’ve made…

  • 5 sweaters (3/4 or full length sleeves)
  • 4 short sleeved sweaters/tees
  • 1 baby sweater
  • 3 dog sweaters
  • 10 hats
  • 6 cowls/shawls
  • and 1 tie!

That’s 30 hand knit items in the last 6 months, not bad if I do say so myself. What has the first half of your knitting year looked like? And what are you hoping to accomplish before the year is up?
