Getting through some projects

Whew! I finished one sock! Now I need to start the other.... I really like this waffle stitch pattern. Row 1,2,3: knit 2, purl 2; row 4 purl.

In the mean time - I need to finish my sweater...just need to seam the shoulders and sides and I will have one more project taken care of. I need to get on a "finish each started project before you start another" kick. But here we are close to deciding on knitting any Christmas gifts, so I have a feeling...my "kick" won't last for long. Although I do have several trips coming up so I will need to have small project to take. The other sock will be one of those and a scarf I started last year will be another. The afghan will just have to be my "when I'm sitting by the fire and want a lap cover" project!

New stash

Oh my gosh!! This is why I can't walk in a yarn store. I walk out with MORE yarn and believe me - I don't NEED anymore yarn for my already full stash in drawers and baskets on the floor.
But I love to buy new yarn and then figure out what I want to do with it! Maybe more socks with the Schaefer Anne yarn or winter socks with the Toasty Toes. Also have some really yummy Mountain Colors in Chinock. Can't wait...but until then - I must weed and get ready for Labor Day gathering.
