Knitting Time:

Worsted Weight Socks for Father-In-Law using Rye Pattern by TinCan Knits and Berroco Vintage in Olive.  US size 4s - 3.5mm needles.  Finished for 176 yards!

Narnia Socks Using my go to sock recipe: US size 0 - 2.0mm needles. Wendy Johnson's Slip Stitch Heel Basic Sock. A 2x2 rib on top of that. Yarn is Opal Schafpate in color 8127. Brick Red/Spruce Green/Rust color.  Finished for 338 yards!

Tristan's BRQ! By Shelley Mackie & Larissa Brown Using US size 2s - 2.75mm needles. Using Opal Rainforest, Fibernymph Bounce, and Leading Men Fiber Arts Show Stopper in Dipping Sauce is the final piece.
15 completed squares for T's Blanket. Will need 30.

The Easy by Martina Behm purchased Done Roving Frolicking Feet in the Apple Picking Colorway for this shawl back in January.  Using US size 3 - 3.25mm needles. 

Unsure of the Campside Shawl by Alicia Plummer.  Using Spooky colorway of Dragon Fly Fibers Traveller base.  US size 7 - 4.5mm needles.  Not in love with the eyelet section or the way the center increases look.  Really like the size and mesh section.  Yarn is lovely and will look great this fall.  OK go for it!
