Failed - but still optimistic!

OK then, so I still haven't sorted out the prizes for the Hamper suggestions. I still haven't finished the Golden Wedding Blanket, or the July socks or even got up to date with the Mystery blanket. I am going out this evening which gives me approximately 7 hours to do all the above. Yeah, no problem!!!

For those of you desperate to know what the August Sock pattern is, well look no further than here - it says the pattern is easy to memorise so will be perfect for those of us planning to knit on the beach in sunnier climes. I just need to see if I have any yarn suitable or whether I need to buy more...

Postie was very good to me yesterday and brought the next installment of the Posh Cashmere Club. It is Sophia 2-ply (that's pure cashmere) and is perfection in a skein. Dee has come up with some pattern suggestions and I'm going for this one. I don't normally do shrugs, but have fallen in love. Just need to find the time to get it done. Another one to add to the list!

I will post again soon, promise and will give you exciting pictures next time of the blanket - which is nearly done. Only another 3,000 or so stitches left to do!

The new sock pattern looks fun - but I'm a bit scared of the fold over top and twisting warnings! Better keep going with my Polly Jeans, Rhodie Gus, 9-5s and Circles for now! ;o)

I'll keep that sock pattern in mind! It would be great for a pair for my sister, but I don't have any suitable yarn at the moment...

Aagh - silly comments aren't letting me comment!

Ok. you have NOT failed. With a to do list as long as yours I'd have been amazed if you'd finished it!

So glad we've opted for Nutkin this month. Just have my cardi and circle socks to finish and then I can start them :o)

I am sorry to say that I have failed to finish lots as well! I am still failing on the poly jeans but I already have a nutkin on the needles - do they count if they were started before?

Thinking about it though - it is only really failure if we never finish and that isn't the plan is it so best foot forward in the finishing off race!
