Beach Bag: (started May 2010)  Just needs lining sewn in, I used it this year without the may just call it a day on this..

Last post I showed the three (four) sock WIPs I finished and/or reknit.  I have finished three more projects since them...First up, the Beekeeper.....So this was an Olive Knits 4 day knit in 2018.  It took two years, but hey I love it!
The yarn is Malabrigo Arroyo...I talk about it more on episode 14 of my vlog. (It was really hot that day!) I can't wait to wear it this fall.

The second finished object is the emPower People cowl by Casapinka.  I've become a big fan of Casapinka this summer.  This is a free pattern, there is also a free crochet version, by BzyPeach, which I will also be making.
The yarn is by Neighborhood Fiber Co.  I absolutely loved this yarn and intend to buy some more.  It's a bad picture, haven't taken a project photo yet...

And the last finished project is my Grinchmas socks!  I love these...just a vanilla sock, the yarn by Night Owl Fibers..
And there have been some new castons and starts....

I'm crocheting some espadrilles.  I started a pair of Go-veralls for a baby shower.  And started a couple more pairs of my WIPs are not getting any lesser...LOL...

I have published two new episodes in the past three weeks, if you'd like to take a peek...the first one is the The One With the Stitchmarkers

And the second one, I talk about my sock WIPs....Angela of YarnnYarns is doing a summer sock WIP KAL that I joined...

So I guess that will be it for this week...again, so sorry I didn't post.....It's been a weird summer...
