A couple knitting WIPs

Two of my projects that I am working on ... although this first one is off the needles and awaiting the blocking and sewing together.
1968 pattern two-skein lacy shell in Bernat Denimstyle pink

basic sweater for son in Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool in Natural Brown
I have more projects going on than this, but two pictures was the limit of my patience this morning.

Useless without pictures

I'll fight with the digicam later.  I've been quiet all summer, but I have been doing stuff: crocheting a bathroom rug and a doily that I am actually keeping, along with new coasters finally; knitting up a storm of dish/washcloths to use around the house.  It's also gift-making season.  I have three projects on the needles and a couple projects on the hooks.  I even have one finished already!

We've also been busy around the property: gardening, chickening, and since we had adequate rain this year ... the majority of the summer has seemed to be just mowing to keep the lawn from turning into a jungle.

My clothes are wearing out fast out here.  The main problem is ... I am still reshaping.  I suppose I could do the fitting on work clothes.

Another cup of coffee, and back outside.
