We survived the first week of school

And that's it, meaning I have nothing else to report. There has been knitting, I believe, but I am not sure.
The snap shot is from my store front door. Peaceful. Maybe even too much.

I have been back for 2 weeks and I haven't posted anything yet? Summer days do fly by, maybe I should imitate Susan and establish here a policy of Five on Friday too.

Anyway, do I have 5 things to report? Let's see.

Oak Ribbed Socks
Pattern: Oak Ribbed Socks
Yarn: Baby og Hosegarn
Ravelry project page here

I started these sock on plane to Amsterdam and I completed them few days before coming back. As all the patterns from Knitting Vintage Socks, I love them!

Yarrow Ribber Socks
Pattern: Yarrow Ribber Socks
Yarn: Poems Socks
Ravelry project page here

Hollis got her her first shipment of this sock yarn last February at Stitches West, and I immediately grabbed a skein: among the long color run sock yarns, this is definitely my favorite!

Pattern: Jaywalker
Yarn: Regia Canadian Color
Ravelry page here

Yes, I did start another Jaywalker, my default sock pattern, on the plane ride back home.

I did work on my Sugar Maple Shawl and I happy to report that I have to finish the last repeat, knit the border (the orginal pattern did not have a border, but I have decided to add one) and then I am done!

The Purple Charlotte was completely neglected, but I started my first Pi Shawl (so much for NaKniWweMoDo!)
