Another month, another yardage tally.

September was certainly more full of knitting than August, despite the continued unseasonal heat. Most of this can be credited to deadline knitting; I decided to knit my daughter a sweater for her birthday. (I did manage to finish on time, but the knit turned out a touch smaller and shorter than expected and would not be worn as long as I had hoped for the work, if at all. So after a lot of deliberation, I ripped out the offending parts and am currently reknitting the top, sleeves, and neckline. I never do this, so it is a Big Deal.) I also completed a handspun shawl which accounts for most of the other yardage.  It was nice to see a number over 1,000 yards again; I was a bit worried that my desire to knit would tank and the year would end on a low note.

I am not sure what October has in store, but I am hoping to square away the sweater re-knit in a few days, knit the last block of my 10-stitch blanket, finish the second sock to a pair I’m slowly working on, maybe start another pair, and hopefully start a new sweater; I recently indulged in a few patterns plus some yarn for one of them, and I would like to at least knit the same amount out of stash. I am not sure how far I will get, since I am also cross-stitching on a deadline; I have a sampler I fell behind on that I’m planning to give to my nephew for Xmas. (I need to complete 4 squares a month to finish on time at this rate.) So we will see what actually gets done vs. what I hope to work on.

How about you, kitten? What did you work on in September? Were you able to knit even with the heat and nasty weather if you were in the US? Are you engaged in other hobbies at this time? What do you plan to work on in October?
