Where does the time go?

Hi was your week?  Mine was great but it felt like it flew by too quickly!

What have I done?  Well, I worked on my socks for Tour De Sock...these had a completely different heel construction....they called it an afterthought leg....I worked my fingers to the bone on these and finished on Sunday (9 days) submission was somewhere around #420.

Those took most of my time....but I was also able to make another Chemo Hat for Darlene's Niece!  First, I got the yarn From England.  It is called Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino....this yarn is super soft to me.  I used this yarn as the pink and white in my 3 color cashmere shawl and loved it....and I wanted to use something super soft for Cynthia, so I ordered this yarn:

I made the hat in the far left colorway, called Rose Garden (the two on the right are called Ruby).

Antonio loved the hat, so I may have to make him one:
I also got some of my DVD swag for being up to 70 Instagram posts.....some minis, needle holders and a key ring holder:

For August, I think I am going to do Curious George.....what bag should I use...1, 2, or 3?

What else have I been up to?  Well, casting on 2 new things.....sorry, I just NEEDED some mindless knitting and with Fins and Briochevron cowl (my two priorities) both being 'thinkers', I needed something else.  So, I started a Boxy Cape for me and a Ranger Cardigan for my Daddy.  The Cardigan is all Darlene's fault (no surprise there) because she is making the same pattern for her hubby, Bruce.

My Boxy Cape:

Daddy's Ranger:

I think that is just about all that I have......Oh, our Knitter's Gotta Knit 2nd podcast episode is up and we have a giveaway from Yarn Café Creations...I felt this yarn and I had to buy some.  I have 3 colors on their way to me (should be delivered today).  Jason Voorhees, Just Speckles Pumpkin, and Peach Blossom.....

Our Giveaway yarn is in the Twinkle sock base, called Mermaid Party:

Lastly, I had a mammogram today in a Mobile Mammogram unit....and they gave me a was so sweet!  Be sure to get your girls checked.....Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
