Year of Projects: Week 40

Well I actually completed a project!  A pair of socks that I started February of last year!
The details are on Friday's post....

I have also realized it is only three weeks until Rhinebeck, so yesterday got the first sleeve done and started the waistband on my Rhinbeck sweater...Slopes..
Not sure I'll finish it, the yarn is "farm" yarn so quite rough I kept getting "pokey" finger yesterday from the needles....

It's also Socktober, so while I will work on socks, the sweater is my focus....but I did go etsy shopping to take advantage of some of the coupon codes...I did post a stash acquisition update yesterday from what I acquired at the Adirondack I am heading out to a smaller Fiber and Farmer's market...

So that is me for now.....

Around the World Afghan: (April 2010): about ¼ done - I looked at this recently and I'm still liking it, so I'll keep it...maybe make it a baby blanket instead.

Shark in the Woods (11/27/14)- I really love this, but it's a lot of cabling and I'm not a fan..about 1/2 done.
Vanilla fingerless mitts (12/25/15) - Think I'm going to frog and do different mitts or crochet them.

I really like the bright stripe colors of the socks. Doesn't it feel great to get an older WIP done? The Slopes sweater is a very nice looking pattern. The colors you have picked will be great. Good luck with posting daily. I tried that this past week and failed miserably. I love reading blogs daily so will keep my eye out for your updates each day.

You are going to Reinbeck? I am jealous. Can't wait to see your finished sweater - modeled of course!

Love those socks and those could be your Halloween socks with those colors! Love the Slopes sweater and it is in my favs...I think after the holidays I will be starting to knit a sweater...but which one of the millions? I think everyone but me is going to Rhinebeck...every podcast is about knitting for Rhinebeck! Have fun!

Those socks are so cool. Love the colors in the yarn. And your sweater is going to be beautiful. I love the teal-ish and tan-ish colors together.
