Looking Back | August.


...and just like that, another month has gone by. Looking back, I see lots of Charlie (even more than usual - the sign of a very good month indeed!) and that special one on the 18th where I captured his first steps...for me, a few more shared cocktails - including birthday toasts with Lydia, Karen and Katie on the 15th (celebrating Lydia's birthday) and with my mom on the 23rd, games!, summer fading away to fall (but it's been back in the 90's here this week... summer isn't giving up the fight yet), and a lot of knitting. I see one project beginning back on the 9th (that's my Game Day Rivington cowl, which will not be finished by Georgia Tech's opener tonight, but I will be knitting on it while we watch the game, so I think that still captures the spirit of it), one in process (Charlie's Fly Away) and two finished...neither of which I've shared here!

First, the Pure | Aran Shawl that I knit to feature in last week's newsletter on the new Woolfolk yarn. I used FÅR (the worsted weight) for my shawl and it's lovely stuff.


And then Lucinda. I wore it Monday (before the really hot weather came back) and got two quick photos.


I used Fibre Company's Savannah DK, a merino/cotton/soy/linen blend; hopefully I'll be able to wear it for the next couple of months - a nice bonus for the first new sweater in a long time!

Looking back, I see a very full month! Hope your August was full of good things, too.

  5. I love how you document some of everything in your months - Charlie, family, food, flowers, drinks, and knitting. August looks like lots of fun with three game photos, and I'm still drawn to that lovely waterlogue in the middle. On to a wonderful September!
