September is half way over already! I've made up my mind that there
will probably be no substantial knitting this year. I will knit as my brain sees fit
which means there may be days without any.
I was able to start and finish another Baby Surprise jacket. This is
for my friend at work, Zac, who just had a baby boy named Alex.
I was able to use all stash yarn. In fact, its the same colors as the
one I made for Gwen at work. I even purchased the same buttons,
because they were just so perfect.
I really like the collar, and the cuff.
I am ready to turn the heel on the socks I'm making for Joe.
Yarn is Spindle City yarn, purchased at Loopy Ewe over a
year ago. Not sure if they are even dying yarn anymore.
It is very nice to work with. Just plain vanilla pattern since
the yarn is busy. The picture looks like its blues and purples
but its really red and black and gray.

We grilled steaks for everyone on the barbque pit...so yummy
Joe and I went to Oneida Lake over labor day. We stayed at
Hidden harbor. Weather was not good - fishing sucked.
Relaxing was fabulous. I won $20 on lottery ticket, and
$18 at the casino...yippee!!

I knit most of the Baby Surprise jacket here. We met some lovely
folks staying there. One couple from PA and one from FL.
Until next week....Martha has finished up a baby sweater and
pictures are forthcoming. Ruth has been away for a week and
has lots to share for next week's blog I'm sure....
