The lazy days of Summer?

I thought summer was supposed to be a time of relaxing and a not so hectic schedule. Not!!!
I seem to be as busy as ever. I am enjoying a different schedule which is nice.
I did get some projects done or near done. The baby sweater just needs to be sewn up and the other sock needs to be worked on. I d
on't actually have to entirely finish it because it will be for display and I want a SIP to demonstrate the process.
I can't wait to start another sock project and I must get going on another baby sweater, I have 2 or 3 more to do.

Today was World Wide Knit in Public day. All over the world, knitters got out and knitted in full view of others. There were events planned in cities all around. As for me, I joined two of my knitting friends at a local coffee shop and enjoyed a beverage (I had an Italian Soda) and some much needed knitting fellowship. It was a wonderful time.

Okay, my husband is home and he brought back the camera. Now I can prove I have progressed. I wish I had pictures of the 2 socks on one needle. It looked so cool. I had to turn that project in as it had a deadline. So, now I can turn my attention to other things. I had gotten further on my other socks for work that felt I could indulged in starting a new project. I have been dying to make a baby Surprise Jacket (Elizabeth Zimmermann). I actually need to make 3 of them as three of my friends are going to have babies. The baby jacket is very intriguing. I will have to track my progress photographically. Gotta go.

Is there progress? Well, yes and no. I had to set aside those purple socks and start on a two socks on one needle project for work and there is a deadline to be met. Also, my husband took the digital camera with him and he is out of town until Sunday. I am enjoying the new project but I am suffering a case of 'startitis'. I want so badly to start a sweater and some socks for ME! But I am a responsible adult and deadlines matter so I must resist and I must go knit before the day gets away from me.
