The First FO for September!

I finished the little vest for Hunter today. It really is too darn cute. I still need to block it and sew buttons on the collar, but officially, it is finished and here is the picture to prove it!

Now I will work on the Angee socks for the Cookie A Sock Innovation KAL. I cast them on and knit a couple of rows on September 1 but that`s it. I seem to be able to only knit on one project at a time. (Hence the finished vest!) Not sure why, I would love to have a couple of projects on the go so I could rotate them. For example, I need to knit another Rocketry sweater for one of Shan's longtime friends who just had a baby girl. I have the yarn and the pattern but I really want to knit on the socks! But I love knitting socks and they are so portable and easy to pick up and knit a few rows. So I guess I will do the socks and then hopefully start the little sweater!

We had Knit Nite here last evening and Heddy remembered that our 2 year anniversary is coming up in November so of course we are going to have a pot luck! Yay! Should be fun.

Tomorrow my friend and I are going to Mahone Bay for a last visit before she heads back to the UK next week. They have been here for 4 weeks now and I don`t think they have had much bad weather at all. Other than Hurricane Bill that is, and they are right on the weaterfront so they had a front row, albeit wet and wild, seat for the whole thing! The weather has been amazing! I love September!!!!

Tomorrow night we go out for dinner to a friend`s house and then Saturday night we are having people here for dinner. I am serving the ever popular scallop pest pasta dish which is just soooooo good!

Sunday and Monday I plan to relax and knit and watch the US Open! Go Roger!

The little vest is too cute! He'll sure look sharp in that. I'll have to try and make sure I get to KN for our anniversary pot luck! I am hoping to get there this week coming, but I'm not sure yet. I have to work all day cuz K is off, and that'll make a long day for Maggie in the kennel cuz I'll be home for an hour or so and gone again. She's too bad to leave loose! We'll see, though. Don't know if I can miss two in a row...

Have a good weekend! We're off to the camper later today til Monday.
