Finished Objects

Summer is coming to an end. I had a great time hanging out with my kids, and got some good knitting done as well. 

First off, I did the Westknits Mystery Shawl. Thank goodness I chose fantastic yarn, because the pattern could have been designed by a 2 year old. Not sure why I finished it at all, but the yarn and colors make it. 

See my girl hanging out in the background?

Also finally finished these socks, the pattern is Cusp by Cookie A. I vow never to knit a Cookie pattern again, waaaay too much work for socks. They look fantastic in the end, but my energy could have been better used on a sweater. 

Happy Labor Day weekend. Now for some fall knitting!

Woohoo - two beautiful FOs. I love the socks. They turned out beautifully. Also, the mystery KAL shawl is gorgeous, too. I think you'll get a lot of use out of it when the weather cools. Those colors look fabulous on you!
