Cramming for Finals.....Knitting style!

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a fantastic week!  My week was jam packed with knitting!  I am going to jump right into stash enhancements:

I got my yarn from the Maryland Sheep and wool show!  Thank you Sara for shopping for me and Peg for being my Yarn Mule and bringing it to SA for me!

I got the Miss Babs Exclusive Maryland Sheep and Wool Show 2016 colorway:

I also got my Verdant Gryphon Traveller Sport in the Downcast Donkey colorway......

Then, I saw this finished Nuvem in Ravelry where I really liked the edge....thankfully the knitter had some notes on her page and said she used the Peplum edge from "Knitting on the Edge" I snagged a used one on Amazon!

My last stash enhancement this week is an awesome bag set from....Yup, you guessed it...Bags By Awesomegrannie....I had to get a shot of the inside clever!  I've been saving my pennies for this set!

That is it for the stash enhancements!  Now on to the knitting.....First, I finally blocked my Masquerade Agleam!

Then I worked on Loopy Academy.....I know, I know, I know....I should be working on my "Big 4" but I thought there was no way I was going to do my 2nd semester of Loopy Academy...but I started feeling guilty...I had already bought the yarn and it was just 3 semi small just like a college student cramming for finals, last Monday I thought, "Let me see how long it takes me to knit the socks....if I can knit them fairly quickly, then maybe I can do the other two projects."  Well, I knit them in 6, I was able to enter them into the GGFancyFeet KAL and the Expat Knitting KAL:

Then...still cramming for finals, I thought....well, let me see if I can get this hat done (used twisted stitches in ribbing for requirement)......I finished it in 2 days (worsted weight always goes faster):

Now I just have one item for my last cramming of finals....a pair of Rye socks....again, worsted weight so they should go quickly....I have been able to use my new bag set for all 3 projects...and the bag set has know, for school/academy :) (ha, ha, I crack myself up!)

Well......that is all I have!  I should be finishing those socks this week and then also working on Smooth Move and Pure Joy!

I want to give an extra shout out today to my Mommy!  Happy 75th Birthday Mommy!  I Love you and I hope you have a great day!

Have a great week!
