Seems since my horrible cold and the long weekend, I can't keep up with it... but probably more due to the fact I have HARDLY STITCHED!
yes... you read that right!
Here is what I have done though...
1) Started the new Dutch tile SAL from Lakeside Needlework and Peppermint Purple. I finished part 1 on July 17th
2) I took a beginner knitting class in May. Since then I have made a few dishcloths and then started a baby blanket using a similar pattern. I finished it on the 13th of July
3) I attended my first yarn trunk show on the 12th of July at Yarn It. I picked up one skein of this beautiful Killarney Sock yarn that I am using for my first shawl.
Speaking of Knitting... anyone else on Revelry? Please send me your username so I can add you as a friend :)

It was also TUSAL last week... here is my tiny bit of orts for the month!
I included week 29 in this post even though its not Sunday yet.
I am on holidays the week of the 23rd and with no major plans, I hope to get caught up in some stitching... at least start and finish my August Year in Chalk, and an ornament... that way the month won't feel like a total write off!
I hope to post a week 30 post on the 30th and then a monthly re-cap on the 31st..... keep your fingers crossed for me!
