August FO’s and other such things…

This “no real set goals” thing really seems to have worked this month!

What have I knit?

  • Matching socks for Miss J & Mr.S (2 pairs total)
  • Creamsicle socks
  • Finshed up the Bleue et Noir socks
  • “Autumn is Coming” anklet-ish socks
  • Evangeline
  • the teal Barbie dress
  • Finished one sock of my Whitewater Monkeys

And, I’ll likely have another pair of socks done by Sunday. Oh – the coolest part of the pair I’m almost done? They’re pair #12 for this year (and pair #7 of the 52 pair plunge II)! I will have actually finished one of my resolutions (to knit 12 pairs of socks this year)! I’m so excited about this – especially because it was starting to look like I might not make it for awhile! And here I am with plenty of time to spare!

I also came *thisclose* to finishing Mr.S’ hat – in fact, I did finish it – but then discovered that I need to add 1-2″ in length to it! I’ll get back to that as soon as I finish the sock I’m on as there’s no huge rush for it yet (need the socks for the chilly evenings/mornings, where the hat can’t really be used yet).

Ok, so now it’s time to move on to September…

I know that I didn’t really set any *real* goals for August, and that really seemed to work well, but I feel that I need to get back to goals for September. Why? Have you looked at the calendar lately?! It’s (almost) September, and I still have gift-knits that still need to be tended to!!!

So, for September, I’d ideally like to knit:

  1. Finish Miss J’s sweater (I’ve started it, but I want to write a separate post about it)
  2. Finish my Whitewater Monkeys
  3. Finish Mr.S’ hat
  4. DH’s hat
  5. Miss J’s hat
  6. My hat
  7. The second pair of Evangeline mitts
  8. Re-start Dad’s socks

Doesn’t seem too bad – now if only I can keep focused!
