Happy Last Day of August

Good morning!  I have a few minutes before I have to meet with my trainer so I am taking a break from the housework to do a blog post.
Sadly, I have not touched my sewing machine in what seems like forever.  The little bits of time that I have had for crafting have been used to work on my Camp Loopy Project Three.  I am making Fiia by Suvi Simola.  I hope it fits.  This is the third sweater I have made for myself and both of the others were huge.  Huge like they could have fit Godzilla.  I am using Lorna Laces Worsted in the colorway Dusk.  I haven't even taken a picture yet!  I am working on the sleeves.  I made a mistake last night (I knew I was too tired to be knitting) and I couldn't figure out what I did wrong so I had to rip out the sleeve.

In other knitting news,  I entered two projects in our local fair.
My Cladonia got first place in the shawl/scarf section.

And my Hedera's got first place and Division Champion.  I was excited!!

Fall is coming here fast and it is pouring down rain this morning.  It woke me up about 5:00 a.m.  I planted some nasturtiums in hanging baskets this year and they still look good.  Most of my flowers are starting to die.  We have had some overnight lows in the 30's.  Next year I plan on planting all my hanging baskets with the nasturtiums.  It will save me a bunch of money, which is always good!

Happy Crafting!!!!

  1. Congratulations on two first places, very well deserved I think as they are both beautiful projects. I hope your jumper works out ok! :)
