Our little one is four months old (how has that happened?!) and suffice it to say lots about our daily life has changed! Rare is the day, though, that I don’t manage at least a teeny bit of knitting, and even if my progress is much slower, I am really happy that there’s time for a few stitches (what will you think if I tell you that not being able to knit was one of my big anxieties prior to Miss W’s arrival?)

Well, yesterday completely slipped me by!
If you’ve been reading along here for awhile, you’ll know that the first Thursday of the month is sock time! I didn’t realize until late yesterday that it had already come around again (I blame my cold!)
This morning, as I sipped my coffee and knit, as is my wont, I was thinking what a shame it was that I hadn’t done any sock knitting all month, and that I’d have to miss this month’s update … all the while I was knitting on a sock! Doh!
This week is all about clearing the deck — both in terms of knitting and the house, to get ready to start some big (knitting) projects and settling into a more normal routine in a mostly put together new place. My Wood Warbler is happily finished and got some wear this weekend — hopefully I’ll get some pictures of it soon! My Bousta Beanie’s drying on the window sill as we speak. I’m on the home stretch of a baby poncho, pictured below, knit in some vintage stash Madelinetosh DK yarn, which is destined for a dear friend in Montreal whose due to have a little one arriving this October. I thought the colorway was perfect for a little pumpkin baby!
Once this is done, I’ll feel full license to start some new projects this weekend — my hands are itching for some new things to knit. I may have already started swatching for one project, which I’m really excited to tell you about soon!
I’ve also really been enjoying Madeline Bunting’s Love of Country. It’s a wonderful mix of travel writing and history, and it’s definitely whetting my appetite for a visit to the Outer Hebrides!
What WIPs are you working on this week? Trying to finish any projects by the end of September??
