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?)

Once Upon a Sock: October Edition
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!
Unraveled: Baby Poncho and Love of Country
After the short novel I wrote yesterday, I promise this is just a quick pop in to join up with Unraveled, which I’d like to be back in the habit of doing each week!
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??
