Knitting and Other Stuff

I just can't believe how time flies but I do have a couple of things to show that I have been knitting a little.  The AU socks are finished and waiting for cooler weather.


I also dug the Vintage Velvet Scarf (from Scarf Style) out of the WIP pile.  I started this scarf probably about 2 years ago and I think the only reason that I put it down was that I was afraid to join another ball of yarn in.  I did have support from Sharon and Susan in the process but still never finished.  I am in the mood for scarfs now that the weather has cooled to the 80's and hope to finish it soon.  The color is a deep purple which doesn't photograph well.


Since I have a lot on my plate now I started another pair of plain vanilla socks with self striping Fortissima Socks.


In other good news the 'BOX" is on its way to me.  The box I am refering to is the Dishrag Tag.  I have to knit a dishrag with the yarn and pattern enclosed and send the box to the next one in line.  I think my team is behind but we are moving to the finish line.


I am also participating in the Trick or Treat Swap and am waiting for my yarn to arrive from across the pond.  If it doesn't come in soon I may have to go to plan B.  I have had fun picking out treats for my partner too.


Since it is Wednesday it is time for Whiskers on Wednesday.  The pile of kitties don't fit into the small bed but they still try!


Have a great Wednesday!

That photo of your kitties is so cute! You've certainly been busy with those socks- they look beautiful. I love the colour of your scarf.

Cute kitties!!!! Love your team spirit socks, and also the vintage scarf. My MIL who rarely knits was using that for an afghan. Needless to say, it went to the frog pond. I hope you have better luck with yours!!

Cutest kitty picture ever.

Just wondered onto your fantastic site. Saw the AU socks and cried. Those were the days!! (I'm just the mom...used to drive up from LA {lower Alabama},tailgating......no one does it better-
Now in Alb., NM......want to go home. Good news is I started with the socks. Love it. What is the color name of these AU socks??
Every project of yours here looks outstanding, I am jealous.
Have a great day.......ahhh, the end of hurricane season, what more can you ask. War Eagle!!

The AU socks are great - what a wonderful color combination!
It sounds like you're going to be busy :)

The cat pile is priceless!

P.S. Your spinning looks lovely (those colors are, indeed, gorgeous).
