This last month has been very busy for me, so I have not gotten a chance to knit much. I have been working on some new Marlene socks and a new lacy chevron scarf for myself. I am using Jitterbug in Parrot Blue for the Marlene socks, which was supposed to be for some Monkey socks, but that didn’t work out too well. After about 4 inches of knitting the Monkey socks I realized that I hated the way the colors were pooling. I figured that my first Marlene socks came out so great, that I would love another pair. I will try to post pics of my two projects soon. 🙂

Finally have Internet connection again. 🙂 I have been knitting my brother’s blanket so much lately that I decided to take a break and return to some old projects that I had on hold. I finished my Cable Socks from Sarah Dallas Knitting on August 4th. Each sock only takes about four days to complete, but I put them on hold for about a month to get other knitting done. The socks have cables all over, and the purl stitches between the cables make the socks very stretchy.
At the end of July I finally learned the steps to two socks on two circular needles. I didn’t really have plans to knit socks at the time, so instead I knit some baby mittens for my newest nephew. I don’t plan on giving them to my sister-in-law, because she seemed very unappreciative when I sent her a picture of them. I am going to keep them until I find someone to give them to.
Other than the socks and mittens, I have not finished any new projects. I started two scarves this month, but I have not taken any pictures of them yet. I will post about them as soon as I finish the first of the two scarves.
