July Projects Finished

As you can see from my post here I was only able to complete 50% of my Stashalong July Challenge.

I did finish other projects though. I finished the multicoloured Multidirectional Triangle scarf & the Scrap Square Garter Stitch Lapghan, around the edge of this blanket I crocheted a picot stitch. It looks great!! ( Pictures to follow)

I need mindless knitting until the middle of September so I am using up my stash with projects like the Lapghan etc. I need to be able to talk and knit at the same time. My mother is visiting for 2 months and I have not stopped talking since she came. It has been 2 years since she visited last and we have a LOT of catching up to do!!! Actually I am getting my mother to help with my stash busting as well. Now isn't that ingenious!!! LOL!! She is making Pneumonia Prevention Vests for me out of the oddballs of my stash. She has made 5 so far & my stash is being reduced. I will have to get her to visit more often. LOL!! I think Dad will have something to say about that!!

Stashalong - July Challenge!

Well I have only completed 50% of my Stashalong July Challenge. I was to complete the Irish Hiking Scarf & the Irish Cable Bag.

I completed the Irish Hiking Scarf by July29, 2006 but did not knit one stitch of the Irish Cable Bag. Blame my mother!! LOL!!! She is visiting for 2 months and I have not seen her in 2 years so we have had a lot of catching up to do!!!!

I am still pleased that I have finished the Irish Hiking Scarf.
The Irish Cable Bag is like an aran pattern so I really have to concentrate when knitting this pattern. I will tackle it when she leaves which is the middle of September.
