Final Summer Inventory - Inventory III

It's the end of my third vacation this summer, and the dawn of my new job is fast approaching. I've had a terrific week, filled with blasted errands (blech) but a movie, lots of sitting and knitting, shopping, walking through NYC, eating in fabulously expensive restaurants and having experiences like never before, and enjoying the blissful weather while knitting outside. It's been a decadent and lovely vacation. While I wish I had another week to go, there's something about the end that makes it even more bittersweet and desireable.

I've reported on a lot of these, but I've made some progress since the last post. And, because this officially ends my summer knitting time, I figure it's good to assess where I am and see what's in store for the fall.

Linen Lace Handtowel: Both are DONE!

DD's Rug: stet. No progress.

Anouk Pinafore: Done and delivered to the expecting mama.

Baby Tart Hat to match Anouk: ripped and shelved.

Miss Dashwood Hat to match Anouk: 2 finished - one for Aimee's baby and one for DD.

Baby Kimono and Hat: Done and packaged to be delivered.

Tempting II: ripped and shelved.

Added projects:
Lotus Blossom Tank from Interweave Press: I'm done with all of the lace repeats (thanks to several hours of knitting in perfect weather today). I'm starting on the bodice now and hope to have it finished in a few weeks. It will fall into the Fall Knitting group.

In Queue:
Bolaro of sorts for Mom
Pinafore for DD
Baby Gift for MIL to give her DF who's expecting

Sounds like it was a wonderful summer. Isn't it sad that it's coming to an end?

Wait: you knit gifts for other people to give? You sure are a nice DIL! Your daughter is adorable. Glad you had a nice vacation. I need one! Didn't take one this summer, because I'm saving for maternity leave....
