Off the Needles | Goal Recap

Time went much too fast this last weekend, but it always does. It was a good weekend and we had a nice drive to Northern Wisconsin where there are lots of beautiful leaves to visit with hubby's family for his grandma's 92nd birthday - it's just dawning on me now that I didn't snap a single photo. Drats! Oh well, trust me, it was beautiful. Surprisingly, I spent a good portion of the drive up just taking in the scenery without thinking much about the looming deadlines. But, on the way home and on Monday, I spent a fair amount of time knitting. I managed to complete Goal #1 from my last post and bind off the new Campside Knitalong for the shop. It got a bath this morning *squee* and it's drying on the blocking boards now.

As for Goals #2 & #3... unfortunately, I didn't get to my sweaters this weekend, but I did get the Inland project bag out so I can get back at it before the end of the Journey-along.

I do have another FO to share... Remember these socks?

Well... now they look like this:

IMG_20141008_180923I had them finished up a few weeks back for hubby's birthday and I'm happy to report that they fit him perfectly! I looked back and found my original post on these socks and it was from January (oops) and that means that my intention was for these socks to be worn by hubby last winter. Sorry, dear.

Well... It's knit night at the shop, so I'm off to pull my Inland out of the knitting bag and hang with the knitters - and maybe knit a wee bit, too. I'll be back with more on the finished Knitalong and there *could* be a guest blogger stopping in soon, too!
