I feel like I've always got 5 or more projects going on at once. This might correlate to how long it takes me to finish stuff. But I do have 2 projects that I'm focusing on. First, my ongoing sock project.
I started these socks quite a while ago, but as I mentioned in a previous post I was having all kinds of laddering going on. I found a very useful tip on Wonder How To that explained how to prevent this going forward. There is even a short video which I like as it's often much easier to follow directions when you can visualize what to do. So I had to restart this particular project, but as this is the first pair of socks I've ever worked on I figure it's all good experience. I'm not as far along as I'd like to be but I think I can get them done before the weather actually gets chilly.
My other project is a little embroidery:
This is another pattern from Sew Lovely Embroidery. I pretty much love everything she designs. This is part of the Running With Scissors pattern set. I've used this pattern set before for a cute project bag. I've also made up some tea towels with the adorable Pin Up Girls pattern set. I want to stitch them all!
With Labor Day over, we're slowly inching toward Fall. I am getting excited about all of the pumpkin recipes and the autumn craft ideas showing up on Pinterest. But we're eeking out every last ounce of Summer while the weather stays nice. I hope everyone is enjoying the last of the long, warm days of Summer and looking forward to some fun Fall activities!
