The Promised, but Very Late Photo Heavy Post

I am sorry I haven't written in a while. It has been very busy around the casa. Tony and Michelle (not to mention yours truly) are all preparing to attend college in the fall. Tony had orientation yesterday. After being a student for only 6 hours, he has managed to earn credit! What a nerd.

Anyway, on the the WIPs!

Here is my Bombshell from Big Girl Knits. I am working on it for the KAL on the Big Girl Knits Group. I need to do the bust short rows, then I do the middle ribbing. It should be done by now, but I started so many other projects, that I really haven't worked on in much this week.

This week has been all about *Cozy!* Remember the Philosopher's Wool I bought on sale for my birthday? Well, here it is again. This wrap should be perfect for fall with a pair of jeans.

Since I am talking about birthday yarn, here is the yarn I bought with the gift certificate from Erin and Jen, and some of my gift money from my mom. 4 Lorna's Laces for socks (which was 10% off) and more of the sale Philosopher's wool (I loved the color but they only had these two).

My Pie Shawl made from the discontinued Lion Brand Imagine (a mohair acrylic blend). Yes, it is very bright. I actually decided to make it a bit bigger than the pattern (since I am a big girl), so I frogged my first wedge, but mohair is a pain to frog. Now the cats have a fluffy new toy!

Sly's Denim Style sweater. Don't ask when the last time was I worked on it. I really don't remember.
Another sweater I haven't touched in AGES! The front is done, and I am just finishing the neck, so I really just have to do the sleeves and I am done.

Just some dishclothes I am doing for my sister. She just moved into a new house, so I thought I would knit a small house warming gift.

I will close with a glimpse of the needle/hook/dpn rolls that will be available for sale here.

I made Cozy last year and loved it! My only regret was a bad yarn choice--the cotton is really splitty. (Can't remember the brand off-hand.) It gave me confidence in lace knitting (which was subsequently dashed) and is a great wrap.

I may finally make it to the short rows in Bombshell. I've frogged so many times!

So many awesome projects! I'm working on Cozy too--yours looks beautiful in blue.
