Trying to get back on track

I'm done with the 2nd Ballet T-Shirt (for Sophia) and here is a picture of Camille wearing it for me! Now, to get back on the Sockapalooza socks. There will be no other projects until they're done! hahahahahaha Oh, can I really stick to this? I've got them next to my "spot" on the couch and once everyone is in bed I'm picking them up. 5 rows each sock minimum per night!

I'm hoping to get the Clapotis done by August 1 as well. I've got so many other projects that I want to start! I'm working on Ravelry as well. Maybe I'll get a good day and get some stash pictures taken. Doug's out for the evening, Lainey is asleep and Hayden is headed that way. Better get moving on my socks!

Where does the time go?

Too much going on, none to do with knitting. Lainey is cutting molars/dealing with a head cold. Hayden is just being 4. I've become a Mary Kay consultant (realized that 37 was a "mature" age and I should start taking care of my skin.) I'm not really into the hard sell, sell, sell. I was shown the products by a friend and liked them. Never in a million years would I picture myself doing this... but I am. We'll see how it goes. Now, I have a head cold that Lainey so lovingly shared with me (molars = lots of drool!)

I'm working on my sock pal socks (very little) and another ballet t-shirt for a birthday present for Sophia. I'm about 1/3 of the way done and hope to finish it this weekend. Then I'll get back on track with the socks. Most available time has been sucked up by! I've still got quite a bit to enter and a lot of pictures to take. We've also been outside playing, going for walks, etc.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

Have You Received an Invite?

I just got my invitation to join a few days ago! If you haven't been added to the list, DO. Even though it's by invitation only at this point, it's wonderful! I've been adding my stash and library. I'm trying to get some pictures of finished and in progress projects to add. I can't wait until it's open to everyone! (I'm having problems getting the pictures to fit... then when I recenter the pics they don't stay that way. Guess that's just part of being in the testing phase!)

So, as for actual knitting... I finished a Ballet T-shirt from Loop de Loop for Lainey a little over a week ago. I had some Blue Heron beaded cotton in the Cooper colorway. It turned out so cute! I'm making another right now for Sophia's birthday. I'm working on my Waving Lace socks as well, but needed some more immediate gratification!
More knitting soon!
