Today is Paige's 20th Birthday (yes, that makes me feel old).  I wanted to give her a shout out today as I know she is home not feeling well.  I hope you feel better soon!  Happy Birthday!

Okay....on to the knitting.  I do not feel like I have a whole lot to show you this week, but mostly because I have been working on my scarf swap and cannot show you that....but I do have a couple of FO's and something else I started.....

I finished the little girl sweater for my neighbor's child's baby.....

I also finished my Sesame Street Socks!  I love these!

I worked a little on my Fibernymph Inversible socks....

Then, do you remember that awesome yarn my friend spun for me?  Well, she has spun 2 for me, but the first one....I wound it and started an Ingot for me.  The yardage is 354 yards...and it is starting to look really awesome!

Then, I got the 2nd Bullseye bump she spun for me....this one is 516 yards....I am not sure what it is going to be yet, but it is going to be awesome!

I have some stash enhancements....I got some yarn from Vice Yarns Kick Starter (I pledged to them).....

I ordered some Wollmeise Blend in their black colorway (A girl can never have too much black...even if it is a pain to knit with!)

Darlene got me some Desert Vista Dyeworks  yarn in the Flintstones colorway....I love this!  I have already wound it and divided it into 2 skeins for socks!  Thank you Darlene!

I ordered another Yarn It because these things are just too cool!

I got a bag set from Birch Grove....Now, we all know I only use Bags By Awesome Grannie bags....but I saw this in my recommendations from Etsy and I just loved the little sheep zipper pulls and had to get them....they are not as large as Bags by Awesome, so they might just hold notions at my house or something, but I really loved the sheep on the material.

I got a new halloween bag set from Bags By Awesome Grannie....she has 2 new halloween bags this year and I had a hard time deciding (the other one is all orange with black cats) but in the end, I could not resist these orange, green, and purple polka dots on a black background...

Speaking of Halloween colors....I went to Hobby Lobby this week and got some orange, green and black beads to continue making stitch markers for the stitch marker swap at Stitches in far I have 50 done and need to do about 100 more....but I think they are looking pretty good.

Oh, and the dogs got new collars this week....they were not as excited as I was!

Well, that is about all I have.....I hope you have a fabulous Labor Day next not Labor too hard!  I do not have any plans....I think I will stay home, relax, and knit!

Happy Happy Knitting!
