It's Almost August!

 Hey everyone....can you believe tomorrow is the first day of August?  I can't.

I know I just blogged a post with a billion pics this past Wednesday, but I wanted to try to get back to my every Monday (or Tuesday) I won't have a ton, but I do have some stuff.

First....Toni Lipsy (the queen of crochet in my eye) did a yarn review recently (she does tons of these) and gave a yarn a 10 out of 10 hooks....I am not sure she has every done that!  So what did I do?  I bought some....the only downside of this yarn (in my opinion) is it does not come in a billion colors.

Here is what I got:

I also have another family member that is going to have a I already started a new baby blanket with this blue variegated yarn and I am loving it so far.

I finished my super long socks with the yarn I got from Paige for Christmas.  These socks take almost the entire 50 gram skein each because I wanted to use ALL the yarn and get all the colors in.

I also finished my first pair of cranked socks (I finished in April but needed to kitchner 2nd sock).  They have 2 different tensions and are 2 different sizes...but they are done.

Look at the cutest bag my friend, Elizabeth made....I am currently begging her to make one with Flower....she will have these available soon on Etsy, Cozy Sky Co 

Paige is in Vegas....she took Kody for a surprise bday present.....I love these two!

Can you believe it has been 14 years since I started SNB on  The group is now on FB, but wow.....14 years.

I started a Mae for Syla....Darlene gave me this yarn over 2 years ago and I finally started the sweater

I started a sunshine coast for myself......there are lots of M1L and M1R and SSK with K2TOG.....I was getting confused so I bought these cute stitch markers (with lobster claw) to help me.

Well, that is all I have.....I hope yall have a fabulous week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
